Once the util has seen enough data, it is then able to crack the wep key. Am I wrong? Is it possible to just crack a WEP key with nothing but the key, and something like JTR, and no supporting traffic, or do I need to run a tool like aircrack that can sniff the networks traffic for a while in order to perform the crack? -- Bruce D.
