    PUtting Wi-Fi router's security to the test--question on output

    I created my CD fine-64 bit, and got to the point where reaver does its PIN cracking thing. I ran the command:

    My router is an ASUS RT-N12

    #reaver -i mon0 -b xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx -vv

    (xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx replaced with my actual BSSID).

    My output was similar to the sample shown in the article, but it never cycled to a different pin. After an hour, it was still working on the first pin. Also, I never saw the:

    Received M1 message
    Sending M2 message

    lines and the percent complete stayed at 0.00%, Does this mean that whatever causes reaver to change pins is being blocked and that my router is secure, or that I have to let the program run for many more hours?

    Thanks for any ideas,

    The exercise isn't intended to prove that a device is secure, but rather to demonstrate that WPS may be more readily defeated. If WPS isn't enabled, then I wouldn't worry.
