I know that I can pass password in HEX as a keyphrase to WiFi network using WEP encryption as well as ASCII. But somehow you cannot get the ASCII when you only know HEX value.
Can anyone explain the underlying reason for this ? How does this work ?
For instance: I have decided to make a small 'laboratory' and set up a network with WEP encryption on my router and try to crack it. And as I have done this I have obtained HEX keyphrase which translated with 'normal' tools or manually with HEX to ASCII table didn't correspond to ASCII values of this key.
