    well, I am not somewhere that has internet access via wireless right now, but I can tell you that I can connect fine and ping with a faked mac address, like so (using the rt2800usb driver) ::

    Code:
    root@bt:~# ifconfig wlan0 down
    root@bt:~# macchanger -r wlan0
    Current MAC: XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX (unknown)
    Faked MAC:   2a:43:da:19:3a:9e (unknown)

    hmmmm, as u see above I used macchanger, and it accepted it (using rt2800usb linux driver), and looking right now, I still have the same faked MAC (what I am getting at here = so far I still have the same faked MAC about 4-5mins after I "faked" it using macchanger)

    Code:
    root@bt:~# macchanger -s wlan0

    u talking about this driver = rt2x00 (specifically rt2800usb)? I have been successful with WEP cracking so far, and have been able to capture WPA handshake. I not so sure that I've tested with tkiptun-ng yet... I am interested in what you mean, mind elaborating?

    thanks for commenting, glad to see others are interested in this adapter!

    Hi fnord0,
    good notice.....

    - I have not tried with the "rt2800usb" driver, but only with "rt2870sta". (apocolipso)

    - When I use macchanger shows the NEW mac correctly. (the card is in "down" mode)
    - But when I recall in "UP" the interface with "ifconfig" command, is changed again with the default MAC.

    - Today, I try to test with the rt2800usb driver.

    Thanks for prompt reply, Jano

    niiiiice... I was gonna try later today - thanks so much for testing it out!

    I agree with you there, I too have had the strange errors, I thought it was me tho... fact being you've seen it too, makes me feel not as crazy now! heh.
    I do want to say tho, I have ONLY seen the problem while using airmon-ng when setting the card into monitor (I have NOT ran into this issue using iw to set the card into monitor). also dmesg gets pretty ugly when those errors start occuring... I don't know the root reason tho for those problems... but indeed they do also occur on my X86 BT4beta install, it's not a common thing, but has happened to me two or 3 times since I started using these drivers. (my work around when using airmon-ng so far has been to always "airmon-ng stop mon0" + "airmon-ng stop wlan0" -- then I do the whole airmon-ng start wlan0, which then creates the mon0 interface... so far it hasn't failed me..... yet)

    thanks for the post Zermelo!

    I am here to second that! rt2800usb works on "kubuntu-9.04-desktop-amd64" (linux kernel 2.6.28-11 X86_64 SMP).

    all goes well "my friends"! /john mccain impression
    all goes well... congrats to the rt2x00 team, damn well done! consider me a very happy linux user.
    (( btw, apocolipse269: I ended up using this guys x64 version of aircrack-ng ))

    while testing in "64bit-land" using kubuntu x64, I tried macchanger and was UNsuccessful at actual routing once I connected to wireless AP and setup IP config -- the root trouble was the MAC address change (I had ran into/troubleshot this same issue back on my slackware12 box using a dlink DWL-G520 and older madwifi drivers = SAME ISSUE!), once it was changed to ANYthing I noticed it seemed to "take" (stayed the faked MAC until I manuallychanged it myself).

    I kinda wonder (out loud, heh) if the macchanger issue might of had something to do with these programs running in background of the kubuntu x64 live cd session ::

    Code:
    PID     Name
    4513    NetworkManager
    4521    wpa_supplicant
    4539    avahi-daemon
    4540    avahi-daemon
    Jano, please let us know your results, i'm quite interested! and thanks for everyones input, it is absolutely appreciated!

    That might be an issue, i never had problems changing the MAC on my HWUN2 (rt2870sta driver). Though i always issue the following
    Code:
    :-$ sudo airmon-ng stop wlan0
    :-$ sudo macchanger --mac 00:11:22:33:44:55 wlan0
    :-$ sudo airmon-ng start wlan0

    Now i'm doing this with my broadcom pci wireless (also does the same on my broadcom notebook wireless) but when my rt2870sta was working it worked just the same, creating the mon0 interface (on all 3 chipsets) just fine

    Jano, et all

    here's my latest update with the rt2800usb driver troubleshooting with BT4beta :

    macchanger works with rt2800usb driver = I can change MAC addresses successfully and get out to the internet at large, without issue (of note, my router required that I use a VALID MAC address, using fake one's - or maybe just fake OID's? - did not work for me)
    using "macchanger -A wlan0" did the job everytime (posted here is a log showing everything working fine after MAC address change to random valid vendor ID/MAC) ::

    Code:
    bt@bt:~# ifconfig wlan0 down
    root@bt:~# macchanger -s wlan0
    Current MAC: 00:c0:ca:xx:xx:xx (Alfa, Inc.)
    
    root@bt:~# macchanger -A wlan0
    Current MAC: 00:c0:ca:xx:xx:xx (Alfa, Inc.)
    Faked MAC:   00:d0:87:ec:0a:fb (Microfirst Inc.)

    I wasn't so lucky with testing macchanger on kubuntu x64 live CD, but come the day slackware13 x64 gets released I will play around some more with a x64 capable OS! (fingers crossed that will happen soon). so take this as you will, I think we gots ourselves a decent linux driver on our hands for the alfa AWUS050NH 802.11n!

    EDIT: oh and one other thing! I was able to use NetworkManager working just fine with rt2800usb drivers + BT4beta - it's actually pretty slick GUI wireless tool for linux, if I don't say so myself (I hadn't messed with it at all until I saw Jano mention somewhere else? that it didn't work with rt2870sta) -- but wicd is my perferred wireless GUI

    Hi fnord0,
    good news

    - I have installed and tested the drivers rt2800usb, and confirm that everything works, including Macchanger and Network-Manager (connected successfully with wep and wpa encryption)

    - But I have not had time to compare the injection speed, between the driver rt2870sta and rt2800usb.
    - I think that the drivers rt2x00 (rt2800usb) are for now the best solution.

    UPDATE

    I am on the same page as you my good man...
    many thanks for your reports! I have updated the original post in this thread with test results from you, Zermelo and myself - it's turning out to be a proper HOWTO

    let me pose this question to the forum members...
    what is the proper proceedure for changing txpower with the rt2x00 drivers, mainly = rt2800usb ? I just can't figure it out... I would like to mess around with different txpower settings, just to test things out.

    Code:
    root@bt:~/compat-wireless-2009-06-11# iwlist wlan0 txpower
    wlan0     unknown transmit-power information.
    
    root@bt:~/compat-wireless-2009-06-11# iwconfig wlan0

    I've located a few pages that talk about txpower and howto set it, but it just doesn't seem to want to work with rt2x00/rt2800usb drivers ::

    rt2x00.serialmonkey.com • View topic - Tx-Power is now 10 dBm and there's no way to increase it

    little help, anyone?

    Question

    So based on you guys experience with this wlan card, it is a recommended one to purchase? I do have a 64-bit Ubuntu 9.04, but not sure that Backtrack has been made in 64-bit yet. I would like to run both systems.

    I think you guys are talking about this wlan card.

    hXtXtXPX:X/X/X:rokland.com/store/product_info.php?products_id=294

    note: remove X's

    Am I right? Is this the one all of you are referring to?

    I'm a newb when it comes to wireless, but I am doing my research and trying to learn as much as I can about it. This is the first time I really ever needed to use wireless. I appreciate any feedback.
