I'm testing a wifi de-authentication attack and it looks like my Windows 7 client is not getting kicked off the network during the deauthentication. Any explanations as to why that might be?
I've got Kali running aireplay-ng and tested both a directed and broadcast attack. During the broadcast, my XP client very clearly lost its connection.
Confirmed with a packet capture that the Windows 7 client is receiving the deauthentication management frames, although aireplay is getting almost no ack messages back.
I'd like to think either the W7 client is getting disconnected and the application layer just isn't showing the disconnection (the wifi icon in the system tray never drops off) or the system is reconnecting too fast for it to even register it was kicked off, although I doubt these are the case, especially since I can still get to the wifi router management webpage (its not connected to the internet so perhaps thats normal, and I wouldnt be able to connect to an outside webpage?). It's an unprotected network, so theres no .11w running. Is there something simple I'm missing here?
