Yes... well, that's got a few problems Pooh...

I believe I outlined the conditions above; so you won't likely be mac  
spoofing. So wanna try again?

I do. But I specifically said you didn't have the list of valid macs it  
would talk with; So sniffing them is .. cheating. You aren't supposed to  
have a list to work with, and no device to leech a mac from.

So, if we discount aircrack and wireshark (and whatever other packet  
sniffing/wifi hax0ring apps you like), how else do you intend to do it?  
Yes, it's a rigged question.. but a valid one non the less. I stated you  
didn't have the list; so no cheating to get it. How do you intend to get  
into the system?

C'mon pooh.

    That would work, but the children would probably bleed all
over my shoes. Just not worth the trouble.
     I'd just use aircrack-ng and macchanger.

How might that be?  

You need to know the MACs ahead of time.  Are you talking about setting
up a fake access point to gather MACs?

Once you learn how to use aircrack-ng, it's output will include things
like the following ...

 From the wireless router ...
                <SSID first-time="Fri Mar 29 19:35:23 2013" last-time="Sat Mar 30 03:01:18 2013">
                         <type>Beacon</type>
                         <max-rate>54.000000</max-rate>
                         <packets>179625</packets>
                         <beaconrate>10</beaconrate>
                         <encryption>WPA AES-CCMTKIP</encryption>
                         <essid cloaked="false">Primus</essid>
                 </SSID>
                 <BSSID>5C:D9:98:68:F5:98</BSSID>
                 <manuf>D-Link Corporation</manuf>
                 <channel>5</channel>

As shown, the encryption is wpa, yet when a client connects ...
<wireless-client number="1" type="established" first-time="Sat Mar 30
00:59:23 2013" last-time="Sat Mar 30 00:59:31 2013">
                         <client-mac>28:92:4A:95:18:22</client-mac>
                         <client-manuf>Hewlett Packard</client-manuf>
                         <channel>5</channel>

Only the data portion of the packets are encrypted. The mac addresses
are not.

It's easy to sit outside the house with a laptop, and find out which
mac addresses are able to connect.  You still have to crack the wpa
password, which is not easy, unless a weak dictionary word is used.

With wep encryption, it's easy to crack the password.

Assuming wpa2 is setup and properly configured with a 64character passphrase,  
the likelyhood of you getting onto this wifi connection in a realistic amount  
of time would be? And yes, WPS is off, Upnp is off, remote access to the  
routers configuration panels is disabled.

Aye.

 GM> MAC address filtering is the most secure.

and very easily bypassed with a little bit of traffic sniffing... MAC
filtering/blocking works as long as the users on the network don't know how to
1) sniff the traffic to find other MAC addresses and 2) don't know how to
change the MAC their connection shows to the network...

then again, MAC addresses are only valid on the local network link... outside
of that, they don't travel and cannot be discovered... in other words, MACs are
only seen in the local network and cannot be seen outside of that local
network...
