    Default network tray & rt73 driver

    first of all yes im running the BT3 final from a LIVECD.

    im having 2 problems though...
    the first is that when i connect to the internet i always have these increasing received bytes with an average speed of 200 bits/s when the system is idle and nothing is running.

    the next is that i have this D-Link's DWA-110 wireless card that has a rt73 chipset but i guess it partially supports packet injection.so i tried to install the driver that is recommended from aircrack-ng.org

    but when i run the make command from the Module/ i get this

    Code:
    make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.21.5/build: No such file or directory.  Stop.
    rt73.ko failed to build!
    make: *** [module] Error 1
    i searched a lot all over the net but most of the answers are so vague . please any help ?

    Did you get the driver from the serial monkeys site?

    The rt73 driver on BT3final works fine. What commands are you using?

    Try changing the rate to 1M before doing anything else.

    I too can also verify that the rt73 driver works perfectly. I did have to modprobe it first though.

    RT73 drivers are already within Back|Track3, do the following to get it to work:

    Code:
    $ modprobe -r rt73
    $ modprobe rt73

    as for the drivers included in bt3, i thought that packet injections were supported by bt3 for the rt73 chipset. but after running the areplay-ng --test,
    i barely got injection working like i only got twice the "Injection working!" and most of the time i had the "no answer" ... so upon that i thought i should update the driver.
    can sombody explain thoroughly how should i install the latest version ?

    BT3final has the latest version of the rt73 driver. If you are still having difficulties you may want to use an earlier version, I've used 2.0.0 without any problems as long as you bring the interface up first.

    http://homepages.tu-darmstadt.de/~p_larbig/wlan/

    The wiki has a good howto for making a module:

    To use the module with the live CD you can use the uselivemod command. And if you have any difficulties there are a lot of threads on the forum covering this procedure.

    check this out, its from the BT's french wiki

    Code:
    	
    D-Link DWA-110 (USB)
    
         * Driver: NdisWrapper
         * Chipset: Seems to be Ralink lsusb-vvv but said no more
         * Notice: This dongle is recognized with NdisWrapper, but impossible to make it work correctement.Pas monitoring, no injection (tested under BT v2 final and beta 3).
    
                             ----------------------------
    
         * Driver: seamonkey for rt73 (hxxp://rt2x00.serialmonkey.com/rt73-cvs-daily.tar.gz)
         * Chipset: rt73
         * Notice: This dongle works to monitor mode and injection with the pilot seamonkey rt73 (BT beta test 3)
    
    example of driver installation: hxxp://forum.backtrack-fr.net/post.php?tid=1017&qid=8835 (link is down)
    you think installing the latest driver should fix the problem ?
