airodump & airocrack related

I use backtrack.

1st question:
 
As you are aware, when you do a general capture(all channels) with airodump it records detected bssid as well as associated stations(informally wireless adapters).  I am trying to record as many associated stations as possible, but they come & go as they please during the airodump process which means I typically have to stop & restart airodump a billion times.

Does the dump file save all stations despite them disappearing from the screen and if so which programs can I use to open the dump file?

Question 2:

In relation to aircrack, e.g.
airecrack-ng -w *.1st -b 00.11:22:33:44:55(victim) *.cap
this launches a dictionary attack with the 1st file.
As you are aware, the passwords in such files are ASCII encoded; there not hex
I want to add hex passwords to this 1st file.
How do I do that knowing not all hex characters convert to ascii?

Sounds like you are up to something shady! ;)

BUT, in answer to 1. If you capture to disk either the IVs or full packets you will also see as csv file gets generated. This will save the access points and associated stations in the csv file. Just open it with a text editor.

And for question 2. I would not see a problem here as any password in the dictionary will be sent in the standard format that every access point can understand. Aircrack will convert it to s standard string before sending it even if it did read hex passwords.

Are you trying to crack WPA or WEP?

Another great tool for exploring the surrounding networks floating through the air is kismet.

You can really nail down through the layers there and see what is connected to each AP and it also can generate a csv file.

I forwarded this question too prematurely, nevertheless danyul is correct.
