    Default BT2 & BT3 switching to monitor mode - Netgear PCI WG311T

    I have a Netgear PCI WG311T and can't seem to get it into monitor mode in BT2 or BT3.

    I'm using the following command ... "iwconfig ath0 mode Monitor" ... Am I missing something? The error I am seeing is "Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06) : Set failed on device ath0 ; Invalid argument".

    Any suggestions?

    I have the same card and have had issues with the same error while trying to switch to monitor mode. I suggest you take a look at ez-pawn:

    hxxp://ezpawn.googlecode.com/files/ezpawn-beta1.lzm

    coded by shamanvirtuel, a member here. A really fantastic tool for noobs like us. One of the nice additions is a monitor mode tool for your card. Make sure you set your default card before you start messing with things.

    The one thing I'm still trying to figure out is how to get back to managed mode from the toolbar. If you figure it out, lemme know. Otherwise, do what I do. Open a terminal window and type

    Code:
    #ifconfig wifi0 up
    #wlanconfig ath0 create wlandev wifi0
    then check to make sure you're bck in managed mode with ifconfig.

    P.S.- if someone knows the commands for switching back and forth between managed and monitor mode, let us know!
