How Hack WiFi using Windows work?
This tool has multiple ways to bruteforce the WPS pin present on a wifi router. If that pin is enabled, then that hacker who is using this tool can easily hack the router and get access to the wifi network. WPS pin was originally meant to allow people easy and direct access to connect IoT devices and other devices on the wireless network.
But this allows attackers also to allow direct connection to the router provided they get the correct pin. The possible combinations of pins are only 11000, which a good computer can easily compute and try making all router security pointless if WPS pin is enabled.
How do I protect my wifi network from this attack?
- Enable mac address filtering so that only valid devices are connected to the network.
- Update firmware so any vulnerabilities present in the routers get fixed as well.
- Use a strong and complicated password.
- Disable WPS pin option so that hackers cannot exploit it
Commonly asked questions about hacking wifi with dumpper:
While hacking and pentesting wifi networks, the following questions might come into your mind:
Q1. It is not working on my pc. What do I do?
Make sure you have an internal wifi card. Desktops do not always have them, so this hack is good for laptops and portable devices. So that is what I will recommend.

No, we do not provide any support for this software. The official project seems to have closed. You are responsible for your actions and usage of the tool.
Q3. Can I hack wifi without WPS?
No, you cannot hack that with this tool. You will have to wait for my fluxion article. Other attacks like evil twin will work well for wpa2 wifi networks
Q.4 Can I use an external usb adapter for this hack?
Of course, you can. You can use both external and internal wireless adapters for hacking wifi with dumpper
Congratulations you have successfully learned how to hack wifi on a windows system without the need for an external and expensive wifi adapter. If you have any issues then kindly mention them in the comment section.
