Subject: Re: Questions regarding WPA Password audit

as i know according statistics about 20% password have 8-10 numbers
digit(tel no or burn date etc.)
remained use number mixed with small letter and around 10% pass it is
hexadecimal numbers.
Chinese modem very popular default pass hexadecimal numbers together with
normal letter
 (half password content as default) and/or capital or mixed (small)letter
together with normal numbers.
as usually 8-10 digit .is usually have on default pass list and easy
please be informed about false negative respond during scan from beta
software version or AMD video card and large wrong positive
validity state hashed pass(cap file -incomplete hash or damaged but is
wrong look like good).
many wpa word list in internet has large amount pass who cannot accepted
for AP and
only waste computation time.
according all this observation i recommend use EWSA soft  and nvidia on xp
os or android os.
