    Default How to return card to normal mode

    I have an Acer Aspire One with USB Distro working fine. I wrote a script to put the Atheros card in monitor mode just to speed-up the process. I would like to write another script to return the card to the normal mode without re-booting. Is this possible? Can someone share the commands?

    Thanks,

    If you are using madwifi drivers, to destroy an interface:

    Code:
    wlanconfig athX destroy (where X is the interface number)
    To create the interface:

    Code:
    wlanconfig ath create wlandev wifi0 wlanmode sta
    or, you can use modprobe to remove/reinstall the modules

    Code:
    modprobe -r ath_pci && modprobe ath_pci

    You can also use the airmon-ng start/stop commands to accomplish the same thing.

    How did you make out? I've got the same netbook and I was contemplating purchasing a usb dongle just so I won't have to poweroff and re-start.

    Why not just try them for yourself?

    What a novel idea.

    I posed the question while on break at work. The poster had stated that he would post the results which he hadn't had time to or forgot to do. Either way, I was just asking.

    Hard day?

    Nope, just a stupid question.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    Here's hoping that others on this forum are constructive...I guess that I've learnt to just PM on this one.

    Why? Because you couldn't wait until you got off work to try for yourself rather than relying on others to do it for you?

    Helping yourself first, now there's a novel idea....
