    Default Rtl8187

    I'm a bit confused and I hope you can help me...
    I have ubuntu 8.0.4 and my wireless card is the one integrated in asus p5wdh deluxe (chipset rtl8187).
    It seems that ubuntu sees my wireless card: if I type iwconfig I see wlan0 in mode managed.
    If I try to do airmon-ng stop wlan0 and then
    airmon-ng start wlan0 <my_ch>
    I get an error:
    wlan0 Realtek 8187L rtl8187 - [phy0]/usr/sbin/airmon-ng: 833: cannot create /sys/class/ieee80211/phy0/add_iface: Directory nonexistent
    Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06) :
    ...
    The strange thing is that If I start kismet and then I stop it, if I retype iwconfig I see that my wlan0 is in mode monitor
    I read the page hxxp://aircrack-ng.org/doku.php?id=r8187 but I don't understand if I have to install it or not.
    Can someone help me?
    Thanks

    So you've read through this? http://tinyshell.be/aircrackng/forum...=3514.msg19646

    and you should be following the instrutions here:

    http://www.aircrack-ng.org/doku.php?id=r8187

    paying special attention to this:

    http://www.aircrack-ng.org/doku.php?...driver_version

    Blacklisting mac80211 driver version

    If you have the file rtl8187.ko in the /lib/modules directory tree then you have two options to blacklist it. Failure to do this will mean that the ieee80211 r8187 module described on this page will fail to work properly. Here are the options:

    *
    Move the file to another area on your system as follows then do “depmod -ae”. Move /lib/modules/k#/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/mac80211/rtl818x/rtl8187.ko to a safe place. The “k#” and/or other parts of the path will be different for your distribution/system. Use “locate 8187.ko” or “find /lib/modules -name *8187*” to find the full path. After moving it, do “depmod -ae”.
    *
    Edit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist and add “blacklist rtl8187” as a new line.

    In both cases, reboot your system afterwards.
    The instructions for your problem really can't be any clearer.
    A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.

    Yes I read all your suggested articles
    What I don't understand is that it seems all is working but airmon-ng doesn't work.
    So summurizing I have to do:

    1)
    lsmod | grep ieee
    lsmod | grep 8187

    If I have the file rtl8187.ko in the /lib/modules directory tree I have to
    edit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist and add “blacklist rtl8187” as a new line;

    2)
    ifconfig wlan0 down
    rmmod rtl8187
    wget hxxp://dl.aircrack-ng.org/drivers/rtl8187_linux_26.1010.zip
    unzip rtl8187_linux_26.1010.zip
    cd rtl8187_linux_26.1010.0622.2006/
    wget hxxp://patches.aircrack-ng.org/rtl8187_2.6.24v3.patch
    tar xzf drv.tar.gz
    tar xzf stack.tar.gz
    patch -Np1 -i rtl8187_2.6.24v3.patch
    make
    make install

    At the end reboot the system.

    Am I missingh something?
    Thanks very much for yourr help!!

    Have you attempted the first procedure for blacklisting first?

    No, I'm at work now.
    I'm trying to make the procedure clear to me and in a two hours I'll apply it.
    So are you telling me to prefer the first procedure?

    Ok, yesterday i followed the first procedure and installed the new driver.
    Reboot and now airmon-ng works
    The only problem is that after reboot nvidia driver doesn't work anymore.
    Mistery....
