    Default WinXP: Monitor Mode - HWU8DD - Help

    Hi I am wondering if it is possible to get the Hi-Gain™ USB Wireless-G Dish Adapter into wireless mode on windows.
    I am thinking a driver is needed from another post here talking about the driver and it appears that the driver is only for linux.


    Is there a driver written for the Windows XP that will turn this device into monitor mode.

    If so, can you please point me in the right direction.

    If not, what do you recommend a VM of linux and then install those drivers?
    Also, I do not know a lot about linux, is there a way tutorial on how to install drivers on linux, (I only know how to do this on Windows XP, since this is probably my favorite OS VS WinNT, 2000, Vista, OSX, and Linux)

    Thanks for any help.


    Also what tools are best to use to capture the IVs for linux?

    No. The only device I'm aware of that can do this is the AirPcap adaptor (About $300us last time i looked)

    First of all this is a backtrack linux support forum. This post will surely be moved or closed but before it does there a two drivers which allow certain cards in windows to be put in monitor mode. The wlidpackets drivers for a atheros chipset based card and the commview wifi driver works for a few others. Your best bet as I tell every one for support with windows, aircrack and packet injection is to visit the taz forumand check out the tutorials in wireless and security.
