There is no method to make WEP uncrackable, or at least secure. So I suggest buying a new router that suports WPA2.

There are two possible solutions here, the first might work, the second definitely works. What might work: Change your password Set up MAC address filtering: If your router supports it, you can define a MAC address filter to either whitelist or blacklist devices accessing the accesspoint. To do this, you will have to log into the administration panel of ...

No. You cannot make WEP uncrackable, but there are some things you may be able to do to help the problem until you get a new router. Modify the signal strength. Take off one (or more) antennas from your router (if you have a small apartment). Move your router to the center of your home. These steps may make it more difficult for a neighbor to get a decent ...

WEP has fundamental design flaws preventing it from ever being secure. This means that in order to get a secure network you either have to replace WEP with something secure (WPA2) or enforce security at a higher level in the protocol stack. Security at a higher level in the protocol stack means you don't allow your AP to get access to the internet. Instead ...

From a technical standpoint, there's no "just" to "just doing an aircrack wifi attack". Almost all wifi networks these days use WPA or WPA2 security. Logging into the network without authorization requires capturing a four-way handshake (easy), and then brute-forcing the password (very, very hard). Unless the network administrator has selected an ...

I do not know of any other methods to crack WEP as this is probably the fastest way and a technique you can be sure will end up giving you the key. That said, you may want to check that command aireplay-ng -3 –b 98:fc:11:c9:14:22 –h 00:c0:ca:50:f8:32 mon0 The second mac in there is supposed to belong to a client already authenticated on the AP when you ...

Short answer to your question is yes, Hydra and Crunch can be used in combination. Your statement that "bruteforcing is generating every possible combination in order to guess..." is correct but the term "bruteforcing" is often used in relation to guessing based on a wordlist, so we just have to deal with the impercise term. On to your goal of recovering ...
