    Question rt2860 Packet Injection

    I recently installed linux drivers for my wireless card with an rt2860 chipset. Whenever i type this into konsole:

    Code:
    aireplay-ng -1 0 -e belkin -a 00:11:22:33:44:55 -h 00:fe:22:33:f4:e5 ath0
    It takes about a minute or two, then it fails. I suspect that it is bececause packet injection is not supported for the rt2860 chipset.

    It could also be because i haven't installed the drivers correctly? I am a complete n00b when it comes to linux .

    One other thing is that when i enter "iwconfig" it says that the driver is rt2500 instead of rt2860.

    Thanks in advance guys!

    Some more information would be needed to help you out here. The output from the command your using for one.

    Also, is your card set to the same channel as your AP? Thats an important one.

    I'm getting the same problem as well.

    Code:
    aireplay-ng -1 0 -a 00:18:F8:40:F3:B8 -h 00:15:AF:E6:3A:34 ra0
    19:06:49  Waiting for beacon frame (BSSID: 00:18:F8:40:F3:B8)
    
    19:06:49  Sending Authentication Request
    
    ...
    
    19:07:19  Sending Authentication Request
    Attack was unsuccessful. Possible reasons:
    
        * Perhaps MAC address filtering is enabled.
        * Check that the BSSID (-a option) is correct.
        * Try to change the number of packets (-o option).
        * The driver/card doesn't support injection.
        * This attack sometimes fails against some APs.
        * The card is not on the same channel as the AP.
        * You're too far from the AP. Get closer, or lower
          the transmit rate.
    Code:
    iwconfig
    lo        no wireless extensions.
    
    eth1      no wireless extensions.

    It could be that my driver/card doesn't support injection, but I don't know that for sure.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Perhaps the card does not support injection? I'm sure if you do a bit of searching you could find this out yourself..

    You can Test packet injection with the following command:

    aireplay-ng --test wlan0

    Well, what I was saying is that injection is not yet supported on the ralink 2860s.

    I've read that the Ralink 2860s may not support injection by default. However Ralink has Firmware drivers on their site, but they have not helped.
