    Default Problem installing iw

    I am using an Intel pro wireless card in my Toshiba Qosmio but when i give it the command airmon-ng start wlan0 it gives me this error

    Neither the sysfs interface links nor the iw command is available.
    Please download and install iw from

    dl.aircrack-ng.org/iw.tar.bz2

    i have downloaded this file but dont have any idea how to install it. Please some help. Thanks in advance

    Here is the first lesson.

    Default thanks but still there is a problem :p

    I followed exactly the procedure provided in the lesson but when i reach the
    make[ command it gives me a list of errors like this :

    iw.c:11:31: error: netlink/genl/genl.h: no such file or directory

    and a list of similar errors following this.

    The file i downloaded already contains a makefile and I am running bactrack 3 from a cd.
    Please help if you know any thing about this problem. thanks

    also what version of backtrack are you using. im gonna go ahead and take a stab at backtrack 3 and that u are trying to get intel 3945abg working. if thats the case, just use backtrack 4 pre final as its already there and working beautifully.
