Has anyone successfully been able to do this?
So far my attempts have been less then perfect and this would be my first time to run aircrack-ng
What ive done so this
1. First i logged into the router
2. Go to the Administrator tab and enabled jffs2 support
3. Then enable the clean the jffs2 partition aswell
4. telnet into the router- some reason i can't SSH but its enabled?
5. 'ipkg list' .....gives the list of ipkg's available
6. For the La Fonera Firmware no packages are available so you have to manually install one
7. I then install one by useing 'ipkg install packagename' so in this case it would be

I got it working. But the binaries I used before were bad. -Edit: The newer aircrack-ng versions have been changed to adapt to a madwifi-ng problem. This aircrack-ng works with madwifi-ng (madwifi 0.9.x accepts either one + other applications like MDK3 and airpwn ). I DID NOTICE SOMETHING IMPORTANT. Channel switching (sometimes) causes problems with some nonstandard (outside of 1,6,11) channels. Airodump seems to stop recieving information (in fact the wireless interface completely chokes) sometimes if I let it run on all of the available channels (it helps to use client mode, physical lan port to make sure you don't get kicked when the interface chokes). I have to use "ifconfig mon0 down" then "ifconfig mon0 up" to get the wireless ready again. This probably has to do with Madwifi-ng. Have all of the necessary patches been applied?

So this is the sequence of events to how i installed but..
I ran/started the HFS Http Server. Once it was running I added the aircrack-np
package to be shared on the Http server. Then I logged into telnet screen and
went into the tmp directory where I could copy the ipk package
There is no need to run a server. The router can download stuff right from the internet by itself, and WinSCP + Putty are the best file transfer and communication tools. Putty now support communication over serial meaning it's a hyperterminal replacement.
Make sure libpthread is installed! I'm still looking for MDK2 or MDK3 for DD-WRT for the fonera. I have an openwrt version but it doesn't work in DD-WRT for some reason. Read my post about it crashing the router. Too bad since it's better than aircrack.
