We are doing a site survey using Netstumbler and Ethereal on a Windows 2000 Professional. We are looking for a Windows app that will attempt to crack the WEP on our access points. I have used Linux and Airsnort for this in the past but don’t have that setup available. Just looking for a link to a good Windows app that will do this for us.

Currently, Windows doesn't have much free apps to crack the WEP.
IMHO, I found WinAirSnort not very useful...(cannot even detect my existing network)...
Netstumbler does a better job to detect it.
In the end, the Linux and Airsnort combination is still the way to go... ;-)

Commercial products are available with more robust feature sets than freeware products. They include Wild Packets' AiroPeek, AirMagnet and Sniffer Wireless from Network Associates for the Windows platform, (but they are very expensive, imho).... ;-)
