    Default Alfa AWUS036NEH - no connection

    Hello there. I have an Asus Eee PC with backtrack 4 installed. I got an Alfa AWUS036NEH for it. I downloaded the tar.bz2 for the driver from the Alfa site, compiled it without error. I still can't scan for APs or connect. Any ideas?

    Some more information about any troubleshooting steps you have attempted so far, and the results from the relevant diagnostic commands might be helpful.
    Capitalisation is important. It's the difference between "Helping your brother Jack off a horse" and "Helping your brother jack off a horse".

    Sorry. I feel a little foolish actually. I searched and searched and the only thing I found info on was for the AWUS036NH, not the NEH that I have. Then when I came back here I found a patch at the backtrack-linux.org home page under wireless drivers. How that didn't smack me in the face before I have no idea. Anyway, long story short for anyone in the same position, I compiled the driver Alfa gives you using the standard make install process. Then I installed the patch as explained here: http://www.backtrack-linux.org/forum...rack-4-r1.html. Then recompiled the driver. Works like a charm now. Nice little dongle too. Good reception even without screwing in an antenna.

    I'm thinking about buying the AWUS036NEH dongle.

    After getting yours to work, is it capable of doing packet injections?

    Are there any other limitations to this device that would make it not ideal?

    m3t4tr0n,
    Thank you so much!! Got my new device working using the advice you posted here.

    I will try and write up the steps used to get this working so any other noob like myself won't spend so much time figuring out all the steps.

    You rock!

    I still haven't tried to do injections yet, but I'll let everybody know once I do!

    Hello!
    I've bought this card to and it wont have injection support or monotoring support,very bad though this is a RALINK chipset, I really hope some hardcore hacker in this forums takes a look on the driver to se if he/she can make a good driver of it!

    There is a atleast 2 d rivers that "works" for this card but I can say they both sucks,even in normal networking.


    The first driver I've tested was something like 28xx (I don't remember), wouldent connect to WPA/WPA2 networks.
    The secound driver was the "real" driver for the chipset RT3070, it worked ,but bad range and speed and disconnected sometimes.

    here is a full tech spec (in swedish but I think you'll understand the important):

    EDIT!: I've found a guide to get this chipset working , but you'll need to recompile your kernel plus ,it's in french! ( )

    Hello just want to tell everybody that this cheap(I bought mine for something arrond 40Euros) little adapter from Alfa with a very good range is working great after i found this guide: BackTrack4-R1 + AWUS036NH = Win! « /dev/random

    I've tested this with baktrack R1 in VMware (linux and windows host) both work great!

    I've not tested from a pure install but I suppose it's the same

    NeZZeRSWE, you're right. No packet injection.

    Any idea if the BT R2 release fixes this issue?

    I've tried to get the injections to work with little success. Even after applying the patches and using several versions of the drivers. It monitors like a champ, but no injections.

    Any idea if BT R2 fixes any issues with the AWUS036NEH?

    Eyy dude don't let this 2 two adapters confuse you! That's the NE adapter i think (more expansive and powerful)

    The adapter I'm talking about this : ALFA Network – WLAN, WiFi phone, ADSL, KVM, Bluetooth, PoE Products -- AWUS036NEH adapter.

    It's called NEH, and works like a charm with the guide I linked! :D

    Are you sure you're doin exactly as the guide says ?

    Try reinstall and follow the guide again ,I was doing it myself from a fresh install of BT r1 with VMWARE.

    Good luck! :)

    I'm about to install BTR2. I'll report if it works or not:)

    This card is working out of the box with BTR2! :):cool:

    Tested today windows7-VMWARE-BTR2!

    Mine is now working after following a guide!

    I've posted instructions and a link to the guide in my thread :http://www.backtrack-linux.org/forum...tml#post181890

    The card has been up at apx 500pps max with standard antenna.. so quite good speed and the range is awesome! (especially indoors becouse of MIMO technology!)

    "Our" Alfa card works out of the box MON+Injection in BTR2

    Tested today Windows7-VMware-BTR2.
