Find a Router Wireless Key Using Android

Find a Router Wireless Key Using Android

XDA forum member deovferreria has developed Penetrate, an Android app that can find the wireless key of Thomson, Dlink and SpeedTouch routers.

Penetrate maps the SSIDs and MAC addresses into their respective default keys. For SpeedTouch and Thomson, a special dictionary is required to be installed on your sdcard and the app provides instructions for this.

The app scans the networks around your device and detects ones which are reversible.

Penetrate is available for free in the Market.

For more information, check out the application thread.

I've been around XDA since 2007 when I bought the HTC Touch, well things have moved on a lot since then, and I've tried my hand at developing for WM and Android (still learning), but wanted to contribute more by becoming a News Writer for XDA.I write mainly Android articles, and some Windows Mobile. We're always sifting through the masses of threads for front page news, but do let me or the other guys know if you think anything is newsworthy including any breaking news!
