    Nicely done video - except it's only part one of two so you might want to link the second half here:

    ...this is not new and there are some technical caveats with how this particular demo is done.  It's clear that this person is not a wifi guru, but the quality of the video is up there.  There's far better tutorials that you'll actually learn something about the weak IV in WEP than just doing what the video presenter says to do.

    Agreed, info is so-so and nothing particularly new - but it's well handled and a lot more watchable than half of the other 15 year olds "demonstrating" the same thing on youtube...
