Please wait for the update for "wifite" and "wifite2" & the Reaver WPS got updated yesterday.

wifite is likely to be updated very soon, if you cant want, check out the updated version @ https://github.com/derv82/wifite and the new, re-written one wifite2 @ https://github.com/derv82/wifite2

Repos which contains an updated version from the one found in Kali repos.

* notice, the last few days, several people have been working on the wifite/wps issues (also with patching aircrack-ng), all together im pretty satisfied with the increased stability & performance the past few days/nights have brought. so you just be patient mister and it all will come together soon (i hope)

thanks to kcdtv (he's all over the wifi place btw :D), t6x, wiire, Mister-X and lots of other contributions that have been made. and the 5Ghz fix.. just love it. binarymaster also jumped onboard.. to many names.

again, just be patient for everything to come together and it will all be good ;)

[cant wait? check our progress & build the sources @
https://github.com/aircrack-ng/aircrack-ng (https://github.com/kimocoder/aircrack-ng testing several patches, and they seem working pretty good, also added support for more channels as Mister-X pointed out)

https://github.com/derv82/wifite2 (https://github.com/kimocoder/wifite2 got added exact clients connected patch)


sorry the long "post" guys, but hope it helps.

@kimocoder - I concur with gopalkaul, PixieWPS isn't working... neither does Reaver w/ PixieWPS. (I've them all updated)

Thank you.


gopalkaul (reporter)

Thanks atdphreaker.
I found a fix.
Install Kali 2016.2, update.
It wont work.
Uninstall reaver and install the one from github @https://github.com/derv82/wifite

Sorry, im on a long vecation, but yes Pixiewps & WPS attacks got some reported issues. clone wifite from github to include the latest fixes from Kali & Reaver also got lots going on (many updates/new features) lately, worth taking the trip to github for both these tools.


sbrun (manager)

wifite has been updated in kali-rolling (new version is 2.0.85~gitedbdedd14-1kali2. it includes the usptream fixes for Kali)

Due to the age of the OS (Kali Moto [v1], Kali Safi [v2], Kali Rolling 2016.x/2017.1), these legacy versions are no longer supported.
