There are many ways of cracking WEP keys and gaining access to Wi-Fi access points. I don’t recommend doing this unless you have permission to do so from the owners of those access points.
The method that I’ve used for years was to use a combination of tools that are included in BackTrack. These tools include airmon-ng, airodump-ng, aireplay-ng and of course aircrack-ng. Although this is an excellent way of doing this, if you haven’t done it this way I would highly recommend learning how to do it this way however, this method will not be covered in this tutorial. Lifehacker.com however does have an excellent article on this method that I highly recommend reading at some point.
