It is a brute force program, but given the distance (with the right device)wifi can be picked up and how cheap laptops are, you could set one away and have access to everyone's wifi in your street within days.Ethernet plus a VPN and TOR is the most secure way to access the internet. Depends on how paranoid you are.

Thanks for the video. Just a brute force software programme. I have over 50 characters in my password with upper/lower case, number and symbols. I doubt a laptop or IPad could crack it. You also have to factor that the WLAN has to be in range. Imagine sitting outside someone's house for weeks! I also have client isolation and DDOS protection enabled on my router. My neighbours are elderly, most of them do not know what WiFi is.
So you think an Ethernet connection is more secure. What about a local network travelling across the earth wiring in ac mains?

that video is kinda deceiving... you're gonna need a bigger password list than that.... at least 50+ gbs
and even with that it can take weeks to months to crack a good wpa2 password
you're better off using reaver to brute force the wps pin.. that is ofc if it is enabled on the router
