Create X number of FAKE access points

Many people ask me how do I do this. Well, it's not that hard all you need is a wireless card that is compatible with backtrack (mine is RTL8187), a computer, an antenna, .........aaaand... brain.

Q: What's the purpose of creating fake access points ?
A: To trick your neighbours and passing by people. Generally to trick people and have fun.


THIS TUTORIAL DOES NOT COVER: Man in The Middle (MiTM)

So let's get started. Boot up with backtrack 4 or 5 and launch a terminal. Type in:

airmon-ng
Now take a note of your wireless card interface. Mine is wlan0
Type in the terminal: 
airmon-ng start wlan0

This should start your card in monitor mode with a new interface of mon0 which is very important.

Now type in the terminal: airbase-ng --essid name -c 6 -a 00:11:22:33:44:55 mon0

Parameters explained:
--essid = Stands for the name of your fake wifi
-c = Stands for the channel of your fake wifi (Set any channel between 1 and 11)
-a = Stands for the MAC address of your fake wifi. Note: It is important to specify the -a parameter with your preferred MAC address, if you don't want to get in trouble
mon0 = Stands for your new interface in monitor mode. Remember that after you typed airmon-ng start wlan0, you should always use the new monitored interface mon0.

If you want to create multiple fake access points then open a new terminal each time and type in the same command: airbase-ng --essid name -c 6 -a 00:11:22:33:44:55 mon0

If you want to use a list of names then specify the parameter: --essids FilePath

That's it! Have fun.
