Generate Passphrase from WEP Key

Hi all,

There are a lot of WEP generators out there, but what I'm looking for is a program that can generate a passphrase for 128bit WEP from the Key.

So basically, turn 12345678912345678912345678 into a simpler passphrase

Can it be done?
 :)

Take a look at this blog:

It deals with exactly that under linux.

Thats good, But it only does upto 64Bit,

Hopefully someone can find a 128bit and maybe even a windows solution :P

The easiest way would be to distribute a new pass phrase over your network and take a note on that!
In most cases you ccould use your hex phrase instead of your pass phrase to access your network!
And if the network is not yours - it is illegal to access it!

Thanks all,

I do like, in the techrepublic forum, how the instant respons is that the person is a hacker? They, like myself, already have the key to access the network!

I'm asking out of intrest, and the blind hope that I could type a short passphase rather than the 26 letter key,

Both generators did work to a degree, but did not actuall produce a shorter or simpler passphrase :P

The solution, eventually will be to change to a WPA network, and use an easier passphrase, but that means updating over 150 devices :)

Thanks all for your suggestions
