I have seen many tutorials and lessons about how to use aircrack-ng suite in Linux. Can I use this suite in Windows 10? If so, from where can I download binaries safely? (if you google, there are many binaries, but I do not want to infect my host machine with malware)

I do have a USB WiFi adapter (TL-WN722N) and can I use it in promiscuous mode in Windows with aircrack-ng suite? If so, how?

  • There used to be drivers for windows several years ago but they never got much traction and were abandoned as a result. Your best bet is to boot your machine on an Linux USB. Jan 22 '17 at 0:40
  • Why does it need to be windows?

  • 1
    Also, a VM would suffice

  • @J.A.K : Windows is the only option I have at the moment to execute this test. I am out of options here. Jan 22 '17 at 22:28
  • You can set your WIFI adaptor to monitor mode using NetMon, but I doubt that you can get aircrack-ng to run on Windows.

I don’t think you’d be able to get aircrack-ng to work on Windows. You’d also have to install the drivers. I recommend installing Virtual Box and getting the Kali Linux iso. Aircrack-ng comes preinstalled in it, all you have to do then is purchase a monitor mode supported WiFi adapter card. I suggest an ALFA one, I have one and it works perfectly. After that it’s really just a matter of opening up settings in virtual box and adding the WiFi adapter as a usb device. You should be able to use aircrack-ng then! There tons of tutorials on YouTube on how to install Kali Linux and connect a WiFi adapter.
