    Lightbulb problem with wireless :S

    this is my firsts steps of wireless.
    i just buy a new laptop hp 6730s and i have problems with wireless drivers :S
    somehow i found some drivers and installed but when i run this commands this shows me:

    teo@teo-hp:~$ sudo airmon-ng start eth2


    Interface Chipset Driver

    eth2 UNKNOWN wl (monitor mode enabled)

    teo@teo-hp:~$ sudo airodump-ng eth2
    ioctl(SIOCSIWMODE) failed: Invalid argument

    ARP linktype is set to 1 (Ethernet) - expected ARPHRD_IEEE80211
    or ARPHRD_IEEE80211_PRISM instead. Make sure RFMON is enabled:
    run 'ifconfig eth2 up; iwconfig eth2 mode Monitor channel <#>'
    Sysfs injection support was not found either.



    why eth2 chipset is UNKNOWN? and why airodump-ng don't work
    pls help me,i'm new here

    I get that on my ath0 interface.
    I belive that it means it can't go to monitor mode. Needed to sniff and do wep/wpa attack means.

    Lucky i was bored enough to lookup what kind of wireless card is in your laptop. I've determined that it should be the intel 5100. According to the HCL is it not supported by backtrack 3. You can try the new compat-wireless drivers, i've read that they can enable injection on your particular card.
    www,linuxwireless,org/en/users/Download#Wheretodownload
    the instructions are deadly simple to follow, you just download, unpack, make, make install and make load. Hope this fixes your problem.

    *edit*
    Make sure you get the drivers for kernels <= 2.6.26

    ok then, now we know its a BCM4312. It should also work with the compat-wireless drivers though.

    yes but hot to fix this

    teo@teo-hp:~$ sudo airodump-ng eth2
    ioctl(SIOCSIWMODE) failed: Invalid argument

    ARP linktype is set to 1 (Ethernet) - expected ARPHRD_IEEE80211
    or ARPHRD_IEEE80211_PRISM instead. Make sure RFMON is enabled:
    run 'ifconfig eth2 up; iwconfig eth2 mode Monitor channel <#>'
    Sysfs injection support was not found either.

    Are you saying that you don't understand the instructions?

    Try the following commands:
    Code:
    ifconfig eth2 up
    airmon-ng start eth2
    airodump-ng eth2

    his drivers are unknown to airmon-ng, so i am assuming his card will not work out of the box

    I am relying on the OP's updated version of his post which clarifies that he is using a BCM4312 chipset. According to the bcm43xx supported cards list this chipset is supported by kernels > 2.6.20, which means it should be supported by BT3. Broadcom cards can, and should, be put into monitor mode using the airmon-ng command which is why I suggested that he try it.
