HOWTO : Reaver on Ubuntu Desktop 12.04 LTS

Reaver implements a brute force attack against Wifi Protected Setup (WPS) registrar PINs in order to recover WPA/WPA2 passphrases.

Reaver has been designed to be a robust and practical attack against WPS, and has been tested against a wide variety of access points and WPS implementations.

On average Reaver will recover the target AP's plain text WPA/WPA2 passphrase in 4-10 hours, depending on the AP. In practice, it will generally take half this time to guess the correct WPS pin and recover the passphrase.

Step 1 :

sudo apt-get install subversion build-essential libpcap0.8-dev libpcap-dev

sudo -sH
cd /opt
svn checkout reaver
cd /opt/reaver/src
make install

Step 2 :

To run it. You can run it at any directory.

wash -h
reaver -h

That's all! See you.
