It's taken me like a week to crack some of WPS pins. There are TALKTALK routers that keep failing for no reason, maybe some incompatibility issues, no idea. It works 100%, just keeps failing too often.
If you want to continue a session, find the file where reaver saves the session. It's usually a file with mac address of the station. not sure where it is tho, you have to search for "reaver" and you'll find it. in that file, first 4 digits specifies where it left the pin. It only saves first 4 digits.
So you can also resume manually by changing the reaver file, in which order it takes the pins from. you just delete from beginning to that point and it will try the remaining pins. so its one solution for "resuming" the session, but for that, you have to manually do it and remember where session was left.
lol you have some messed up mind, he's actually travelling, he said he'll be back before summer, but don't know when.
as far as i know, all the routers will unlock themselves after some time, but for some, that delay is like 2-3 days. so if you doing it on a router you're not suppose to, you gotta wait until it unlocks. then increase the delay between pin attempts and run it again. I've had to use delay as big as 300 seconds, its a lot, but it isn't THAT much. It should be less than month. However if router has 8 digit password (upper or lower alpha only) and you have good enough PC, you can just take a whack at the handshake.
but yeah, virginmedia routers do not have WPS enabled. it says it is, but it isn't. If you go into settings, you will notice it. You'd have to enable the WPS pin entering. I mean WPS is enabled, but its on the "push the button" mode, so in order to connect via WPS, you have to hold the button down on router and on the WPS capable wifi card. .. not sure how it works tho, i thought that doing that, it just uses that same PIN, maybe it just enables it for that short time, like enables it for 1 minute when you press the button and then disables it.
as far as i know, WPS button just enters the pin automatically for both devices, that's all. If you have virginmedia router, go ahead and test. hold WPS button (like it says in manual in order to connect) and at same time, use reaver to try and crack the WPS pin (use specific pin, look it from router settings). It should crack it during that time.
