Legal hacking?

I bought a basic router (Belkin Wireless G Router) and was wondering if it is legal to set up WEP (or WPA) and try to break it?

If it is legal could anyone suggest a wifi card that can work with backtrack 4 and cain and able.

Sure, as long as you're only pwn0ring your own wireless.
As for wireless cards that work with Backtrack, ever think of googling?
First hit for "wireless cards backtrack" came up with: http://backtrack.offensive-security.com ... L:Wireless
As for cain and abel, don't use it. It's windows and windows just doesn't cut it for wireless hacking. Nor anything else really, but that's another rant.

Ubuntu is a good start into Linux. Ignore people who say it's too basic, etc - it is, but it's a nice bridge.

OK so what is a good operating system to learn how to hack. The reason I ask is because isn't Ubuntu unhackable << spell check. I also looked up this and I have my own Ubuntu CD. Just wondering.

Dude. Nothing is unhackable.

Google 'ubuntu exploits' or the like.
