    Default How To: Update, Install And Run RT73 Chipset Wirless Cards

    Before we start make sure you have an up to date Kernel. You can get one by doing the following:
    Code:
    BT ~ / wget http://www.offensive-security.com/kernel.lzm
    BT ~ / lzm2dir kernel.lzm /
    Net you will want the drivers. The ones i used were the RA Link Enhanced drivers. Since they are the enhanced drivers, you can capture WPA handshakes with these.
    Code:
    BT ~ / wget homepages.tu-darmstadt.de/~p_larbig/wlan/rt73-k2wrlz-3.0.2.tar.bz2
    BT ~ / modprobe -r rt73
    BT ~ / tar -xf rt73-k2wrlz-3.0.2.tar.bz2
    BT ~ / cd rt73-k2wrlz-3.0.2
    BT ~ / cd Module/
    BT ~ / make
    BT ~ / make install
    BT ~ / modinfo rt73 (that is to check if they were installed)
    BT ~ / modprobe rt73
    Now unplug and plug back in your wireless card. Once you have done that you can connect to your wireless with the following command:
    Code:
    BT ~ / iwconfig rausb0 mode managed "wirelessname" yourpassword
    Hope this has been a help and help clean up those "how do i do this for RT73" threads.

    I think there is a problem with this command.
    iwconfig rausb0 mode managed dlink password
    gives me iwconfig: unknown command "dlink"

    If I use iwconfig rausb0 mode managed channel 11 essid dlink key sassword
    I don't see any error messages buy I don't get an IP with dhcpcd rausb0
    My AP use WPA2.

    Thanks,

    Thanks,
    Yes the command you are quoting misses the both the essid and key part which are needed. However this command can only be used to connect to WEP encrypted APs, for WPA/WPA2 you need to use wpa_supplicant.
