    Default bt4 wireless trouble

    i have tried connecting to my wireless router with two different wireless chips now, one of which was supported in bt3. the one supported in bt3 is a d-link wua-1340, the other is a broadcom built in to my laptop. both turn on (meaning light up) when i put "ifconfig wlan# up" into the shell but the NetworkManager still does not display any networks. However i noticed Kismet does display wireless networks, so i attempted to via the shell using the guide here:

    unfortunately when i get to step 4 the shell tells me these cards do not support mac addresses...

    any recommendations? thank you in advance
    patience is appreciated =]

    "these cards do not support mac addresses" ?
    I don't remember ever seeing an error like this. Make sure you know EXACTLY what chipsets your cards have before continuing.

    the internal chip is a broadcom using driver b43
    i type "iwconfig wlan0 ap [mac:address]" and receive the output:
    "Interface wlan0 doesn't support MAC addresses
    wlan0 Interface doesn't support MAC addresses
    Error for wireless request "Set AP address" (8B14) :
    invalid argument "[mac:address]."

    Okay I need to RTFP...
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69
