Problem to recognize an Alfa 500mv at boot time
hi to all, ihave installed drivers for ALFA 500mw as provided in aircrack site.
all works well but if i boot backtrack with ALFA plugged in it doesn't recognise it, so to make wlan appear in iwconfig i have to unplug and re-plug or to plug ALFA after booted.
Any idea to fix this? not so bad bat frustating...
yes, i know that it shoul work in bt3 default infact if i boot from livecd it works perfectly without doing anything.
But i have an HD install of BT3 whit an updated kernel 2.6.28
and with default drivers it cannot goes in highpower mode and the strenght signal is a pain.
There has been threads on aircrack-ng about awus036h with high power mode enabled.. put it simply, having high powered makes no difference with injection.
If signal strength is a pain, invest in either:
- a wireless amplifier
- a directional antenna
or just get closer to the AP/router (within 10 metres should be ideal).
thnx but with the driver that i installed the signal is very good, the only problem is recognise at boot time.
