Eircom’s Netopia modem wireless WEP hack

This is a pretty old hack so don’t expect this to work wonders on your neighbors wireless network however you might get lucky!

Basically back in the day when Eircom gave wireless modems to their customers they used a basic algorithm to generate SSID’s and WEP key’s as default. Some geeky dude figured out the algorithm and managed to find a way to the crack default passwords. How sweet is that?

Its important to note that its illegal to do this so don’t do it unless you have permission. However if your clever (like me) you’ll know how to not get caught. I recommend changing your mac address and maybe even use a virtual OS incase you accidentally share files on your neighbors network… or connect at 3am when everyone is sleeping.

Requirements: 

  • An Eircom Netopia Router/Modem in your local area
  • A non tech savvy neighbor/s
  • A Computer/Laptop with a wireless network interface
  • About 1 minute of your time

Instructions:

  • Check your wireless interface and see if there are any networks around with names like “eircom4839 9392″
  • Write down the 8 digit number and include the space between them
  • Head over to http://s4dd.yore.ma/eircom/ and punch in the 8 digit number including the space
  • Click “Go” (duh)

The site uses a tidy little perl script which pulls up a WEP key. Copy this, then try to connect to your neighbors network and paste in this code when it asks for a password.

You can get more information, view the perl source code and even get an iPhone app (jailbreak required) at: http://www.bacik.org/eircomwep/
