* ues this code to connect
rm -Rf /etc/chcpc/*
ifconfig wlan0 down
iwconfig wlan0 essid "YOURAPNAME"
ifconfig wlan0 up
you may need to update wpa_supplicant ( I had issues connecting using the wlassistant and after that update it now works using wlassistant ( sometimes I have to down / up the device have not quite figured it out
You mean the RTL8187 drivers I presume? The Alfa doesn't work with madwifi AFAIK.

ifconfig (youradapter) up
then iwconfig (youradapter) mode master
now use one of the built in wifi programs to help you connect they are found under the internet tab i belive one of them is called kiwi using one of these i am able to scan and connect sucsefully to a wireless network
