Anyone who uses the RTL8187SE read this.
After much reading on the internet and finding NOTHING I have decided to make this tutorial to get the RTL8187SE working and also how to get packet injection to work. THIS IS NOT A TUTORIAL ABOUT CRACKING WEP. Simply how to get the card to work.
Things you will need:
1. msi-wind-linux. googlecode. com/ files/ rtl8187se_linux-04. tar. bz2 - The driver source.
2. Backtrack 4 beta (but I assume you already have it. Also I have not tested this method on Backtrack 3 Final.)
STEP 1. Download this Source for compiling.
Step 2. Extract the files into /root/ folder. open up Terminal and type:
STEP 3. This will compile your driver. Then type:
This will load your driver and start the device. Next is the dumb part.
STEP 4. Type:
It will not work but that is ok. The reason being that the driver source is very basic but we can trick it into thinking that it HAS monitor support (cause it does :P )
STEP 5. Open up a new window/tab in your Terminal and type:
If all goes well than this will trick airodump into resetting the card into Monitor mode on the fly and will let you do WHATEVER you are going to do with it :P
