Guys from wirelessdefence have done a great job by producing a good mindmap for pentesting wireless networks.
AirCrack-ptw can recover a 104 bit WEP key with probability 50% using just 40,000 captured packets. For 60,000 available data packets, the success probability is about 80% and for 85,000 data packets about 95%. Using active techniques like deauth and ARP re-injection, 40,000 packets can be captured in less than one minute under good condition
