Here is a snippet from the post:
"The methods and tools used in this WPA / WPA2 hacking tutorial can be utilized without any previous knowledge, however it is best for the attacker to have an understanding of what is going on behind the scenes. My job with this tutorial is to break down each step of the attack process and explain it in a simplified manner. Assuming that the reader of this guide has no previous knowledge with hacking, Linux, or Network Security, I will take it slow (one step at a time). I know this stuff can be intimidating for beginners, but just follow the steps and you will start to understand the fundamentals of what is going on to be better protected against future malicious users.

It is important to note that hacking WEP is simple and is widely recognized as an inefficient encryption technique, thus why I have not covered it in this tutorial. Although WEP still exists in many places, most wireless networks these days have been configured with WPA/WPA2-PSK which are vulnerable to brute force attacks. I will explain that the success of hacking WPA/WPA2-PSK is only as good as the word list you are comparing against."
