    Default from monitor back to managed mode?

    hi guys,

    i managed to put my card intel 3945 into monitor mode by

    # airmon-ng start wlan0
    gave

    Interface Chipset Driver
    wifi0 cetrino a/b/g ipwraw-ng

    ~~#iwconfig

    lo no wirless..
    eth0 no wirless..
    wifi0 unassociated ESSIDff/any
    mode monitor channel=1 bit rate=54mb

    // note wlan0 disappeared

    now i want to get back to managed mode

    i tried
    ~~#iwconfig wifi0 mode managed
    then
    ~~# iwconfig
    gives same result also as the previous one :S

    tried also
    ~~#airmon-ng stop wlan0

    gives

    Interface Chipset Driver
    wifi0 cetrino a/b/g ipwraw-ng

    wlan0 is not showing anymore in the iwconfig with the description

    how to get back to the managed mode?
    much thanks for this great site and all the people contributing

    Default

    From the looks of it you are using BT3, in which case this is the correct procedure for your card.

    Code:
    modprobe -r iwl3945
    modprobe ipwraw
    thats it, it will change your wireless card from wlan0 to wifi0, which is in monitor mode.

    To get it back into managed mode you just need the opposite,

    Code:
    modprobe -r ipwraw
    modprobe iwl3945
