Abstract: Wireless networks are the most developed progress than other technologies because of cost-effective, flexibilities, mobility and easy deployment. Despite these benefits, wireless networks suffer from different types of challenges and vulnerabilities. During past decades, IEEE, IETF and, Wi-Fi alliance institute developed a lot of wireless security protocols including WEP, WPA, WPA2, WPA3, 802.1x standards. Besides, these protocols bring the most solution for wireless security challenges, still these protocols are vulnerable against the different types of attacks and threats (Dictionary attacks and Rogue access points). Thus, in this paper after doing a survey and finding of the challenges in the case of Afghanistan, we propose solutions regarding specific challenges. The proposed solutions are Kismet and snort for rogue-AP and dictionary attacks detection and prevention. Since these proposed solutions are implementing in the least cost due to open source and free attitude, the proposed solutions are implementable in every Wi-Fi environment in Afghanistan.
