-The number of IVs you need to crack a key is not fixed. This is because some IVs are weaker and leak more information about the key than others. Usually these weak IVs are randomly mixed in between the stonger ​ones. So if you are lucky, you can crack a key with only 20 000 IVs. But often this it not enough and aircrack-ng will run a long time (up to a week or even longer with a high fudge factor) and then tell you the key could not be cracked. If you have more IVs cracking can be done a lot faster and is usually done in a few minutes, or even seconds. Experience shows that 40 000 to 85 000 IVs is usually enough for cracking.+The number of IVs you need to crack a key is not fixed.

 There are some more advanced APs out there that use an algorithm to filter out weak IVs. The result is either that you can't get more than "​n"​ different IVs from the AP or that you'll need millions (like 5 to 7 million) to crack the key. Search in the [[http://​forum.aircrack-ng.org/​|Forum]],​ there are some threads about cases like this and what to do. There are some more advanced APs out there that use an algorithm to filter out weak IVs.
