backtrack 3 chipset ath0 parent wif0
I am having problems with my network card on backtrack 3.... the card is working on linux.. and i have it connected to my wifi.. but in backtrack when i type in the command airomon-ng.. it comes up with the folowing...
interface chipset driver
wifi0 atheros madwifi-ng
ath0 atheros madwifi-ng VAP (parent: wifi0)
what does this mean? the card i have is a nec warpstar aterm wl54ag i have seen posts of ppl using this card with backtack on other sites....
beacuse when i airodump ath0.. nothing happens
but if i airodump wifi0 it brings the network list up with no networks on it.....
is my card not configured properly? if so how do i set it up?
thank you in anticipation of your answers
what specific commands are you using?
