The adapter I have is an Alfa 802.11g USB AWUS036H and I'm running backtrack 4 Final Release.
Has anyone been able to set up an softAP (using dhcpd) with Bactrack 4 Final Release and Alfa AWUS036H/USB out of the box?
I have tried different howtos but they all end up with the same problem. I can't get an IP from the DHCP-server on the laptop where airbase is also running.
But I spot the AP and from the Airbase konsole I spot the client connect.
Right now, I also observed this in the syslog:
bt dhcpd: Wrote 0 leases to leases file.
bt kernel: hpet1: lost 1 rtc interrupts
Now when I got my hands on my girlfriend's Asus EEE notebook I was able to connect to the dhcp-service and get an correct IP address! (she wasn't as happy as I was)
But the SSID only shows up with empty squares (unprintable characters i windows). And besides this it is very strange why my other laptop will not connect but her laptop will.
