    Default no networks found in kismet

    Hey i'm new to backtrack and just getting my head round things
    im running backtrack in vesa mode and things seem fine.
    im unsure about the compatability of my wireless card so will give you the iwconfig info
    lo no wireless extensions
    eth0 no wireless extensions
    rausb0 RT73 WLAN ESSID""
    mode managed frequency=2.412ghz bit rate 54mbps
    RTS thrff Fragment thrff encryption keyff
    Link quality=0/100 signal level=-121dbm noise level=-143
    rx invalid nwid:0 rx invalid crypt:0 rx invalid frag:0
    tx excessive retries:0 invalid misc:0 missed beacon:0
    so as i understand it the rt73 chipset wireless adaptor is completely supported and all that but i cant quite tell that it is working.
    when i go to kismet and hit 's' to search then 'f' for found first i get no information on any wireless networks even after five minutes. And i know that there are a good few wireless networks nearby including two of my own.

    so is it just that im overlooking something really basic?
    is there something wrong with my card?
    is there something i'm not doing right?

    everything works fine under windows and ive switched between managed and monitor mode and still no difference

    thanks for any help

    Now where is secure_it with his trusty old commands for rt73 when you need him Well I guess you could take a look at the following thread, or simply type in rt73 in the search box to find all the information you need:

    Ahh another RT73 query.thanks to you people increasing my post-count.
    why dont you people search the existing thread before making new post.it has been said alrady 1001 times about USB NIC.
    attach USB NIC after properly booting BT3.
    else use this if you are lazy enough to disconnect and reconnect dongle
    ifconfig rausb0 down
    modprobe -r rt73
    modprobe rt73
    airodump-ng rausb0
    In kismet edit source
    source=rt73,rausb0,rausb0

    should work now and if you want enhancement then read my tutorial on how to use Enhanced rt73 chipset.

    http://homepages.tu-darmstadt.de/~p_larbig/wlan/rt73-k2wrlz-3.0.1.tar.bz2

    install and then use this amazing command
    ifconfig rausb0 down
    modprobe -r rt73
    modprobe rt73 txPowerTuning=36 ifname=wlan0 (Yep you can set your interface name)
