    You really should add more info regarding your problem, so we can help you. Posting your cards chipset would really help, also lspci and lsusb output. For lsusb, you'll have to connect your USB adapter before issuing it, obviously.

    From your D-Link Card's ID (2001:3700, found in lsusb output) I concluded that it's a DWL-122 Revision A1, which has a prism chipset. I don't know how far compatibility with injection and monitor mode goes with this chipset, but I found this link. Maybe it will help you to solve your problem. Also, try and search on google "DWL-122 A1 injection", you'll find more documentation about your card's compatibility with injection.

    If you need it by Friday you might want to find a local Linux specialist and pay them to resolve the issue for you. All we do here is provide advice to help you solve the problem yourself. I doubt anyone is going to agree to remotely fix the issue for you (which might be difficult without a working network card in your system anyway).
    Capitalisation is important. It's the difference between "Helping your brother Jack off a horse" and "Helping your brother jack off a horse".

    The Forum Rules, Forum FAQ and the BackTrack Wiki... learn them, love them, live them.

    Hi, I got the exact same problem as you, I am also using a D-Link DWL-122. For me it seems like this usb is not compitable. But I have a question for you, If you try to type in first: airmon-ng start wlan0 Does it stand (monitor mode enabeld) Or does it stand (monitor mode enabled on xxxx) Beacuse I have this problem here that i dont get up the name, it just stands monitor mode enabeld.

    I propebly think the card is not compitabel. But hope if you could check the same thing to be sure. Sorry for my bad English.

    Tryed some command, so you can see what happens

    Interface Chipset Driver

    eth1 Unknown wl
    wlan0 Unknown prism2_usb

    root@bt:~# airmon-ng stop wlan0


    Interface Chipset Driver

    eth1 Unknown wl
    wlan0 Unknown prism2_usb (monitor mode disabled)

    root@bt:~# ifconfig wlan0 down
    root@bt:~# macchanger --mac 00:11:22:33:44:66 wlan0
    Current MAC: 00:11:22:33:44:55 (Cimsys Inc)
    Faked MAC: 00:11:22:33:44:66 (Cimsys Inc)

    root@bt:~# airmon-ng start wlan0


    Found 1 processes that could cause trouble.
    If airodump-ng, aireplay-ng or airtun-ng stops working after
    a short period of time, you may want to kill (some of) them!

    PID Name
    5243 dhclient


    Interface Chipset Driver

    eth1 Unknown wl
    wlan0 Unknown prism2_usb (monitor mode enabled)
