One of the most popular tools used in Windows on order to open various wireless access points is NetStumbler. Overall, it’s free of charge and can be used by just about any version of Windows. The company that developed it also offers a trimmed version of NetStumbler called MiniStumbler. The main uses of NetStumbler is any task that involves wardriving, network configurations and verifications, locating other poor networks and even detecting just about any unauthorized access points.
Sure it may seem as the best option for you in your opinion, but keep in mind that it has a major disadvantage.

Basically, the tool CoWPatty is an automated dictionary developed for attacking WPA-PSK. It mainly runs on Linux OS, so it you’re having trouble with using Linux then we don’t really recommend this app. CoWPatty has a command line interface which will run on a wordlist, this list will contain the password used in the attack.
Sure, this tool is quite easy to use but it’s a little slow; the reason for this the hash uses SHA1 along with the seed of SSID. This basically means that for all the various SSIM, it only uses a single password. Users can’t simply use the rainbow table against every access point.
