    Question Trouble with Belkin F5D7050

    Hi all another newbie having trouble getting my USB Wirless stick to work.

    I open it up, and the chip has an RA logo and the identifier: RT2571WF

    Searching the net i found out it uses the rt73 driver but am unable to get the stick to do anything (light on stick never flashes)

    Details from Konsole

    lsusb
    Bus 1 Device 3: ID 050d:705a Belkin Components F5D7050A Wireless Adapter

    ifconfig -a
    rausb0
    Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:11:50:BC5:FE
    BROADCAST MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
    RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
    TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
    collision:0 txqueuelen:1000
    RX bytes:0 (0.0 b) TX bytes:480 (480.0 b)

    if i do

    ifconfig rausb0 up
    iwconfig rausb0 mode monitor

    then redo ifconfig -a i get

    rausb0
    Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00-11-50-BC-D5-FE-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00

    iwconfig

    rausb
    RT73 WLAN ESSID:""

    Always perform a search before posting a thread.it has been said 1000 times.first thing you attach USB stick after properly booting BT.then use this command
    lsmod
    lsmod rt73
    it will show your rt73 chipset related detail and whether drivers got loaded or not.
    if still no help then
    ifconfig rausb0 down
    modprobe -r rt73
    modprobe rt73
    now dont use ifconfig rausb0 up
    use airodump rausb0(monitor mode)
    or iwconfig rausb0 mode managed essid <essid> key <key> (Infrastructure mode if WEP configured)
    use wpa_supplicant for configuring WPA/WPA2.
    it should work now.

    To me it looks like you are able to put your card into monitor mode just fine, what exactly is it that you are trying to achieve and feel like isn't working?

    EDIT: Disregard this, seems like secure_it understood the problem better than me.

    you better understand the problem Tron.from output I can see its already added into monitor mode.
    you need to use just
    airodump-ng rausb0 then you can see light on stick is flashing frequently but not continuously.

    Cheers for the help guys

    I am able to scan for networks now with Kismet and it works, finding mine and a few other wireless networks, although the light never flashes. But the stick just seems to die as soon as i try anything else, even reloading kismet and re scanning nothing is found.

    So it only seems to work once at any initial task then i have to reboot for it to work again.
