    Default BT4 (pre FINAL) Driver Iwl3945 Injection SOLVED!!

    Hi guys!!

    This is my first post here!! I'm from Spain and I hope you understand me well.

    I was surfing several post in order to get the Chipset (Intel 3945ABG) could inject packets.
    As you know, if you try to inject with this driver, it does not generate any data. Up to now, only ipwraw driver got injection feature (no aggregate anymore on backtrack I read).

    To get injection support with Iwl3945 driver on BT4 Pre Final, follow this:

    1) Install Backtrack on HD

    2) Update kernel to 2.6.30.5:

    apt-get update
    apt-get install -d linux-image
    cd /var/cache/apt/archives/
    dpkg -i --force all linux-image-2.6.30.5_2.6.30.5-10.00.Custom_i386.deb
    apt-get dist-upgrade
    apt-get install madwifi-drivers
    apt-get install r8187-drivers


    After a reboot, you might want to run:

    fix-splash

    3) Build kernel headers:

    apt-get install linux-source-2.6.30.5
    cd /usr/src/
    tar jxvf /usr/src/linux-source-2.6.30.5.tar.bz2
    rm -f /usr/src/linux
    ln -s /usr/src/linux-source-2.6.30.5 /usr/src/linux
    cd /usr/src/linux
    zcat /proc/config.gz > .config
    make scripts
    make bzImage (let it run for like 20 secs and then CTRL+C)
    ln -s /usr/src/linux /lib/modules/2.6.30.5/build


    4) Update wireless drivers:

    Download "compat-wireless-2.6.32-rc1.tar.bz2" from...It's seems I can't write Urls...
    tar jxvf compat-wireless-2.6.32-rc1.tar.bz2
    cd compat-wireless-2.6.32-rc1
    make
    sudo make install
    reboot


    Enjoy!!!

    Thanks Backtrack team/menbers

    Thank you!!! Will try this tonight!

    Unfortunately I was unable to get injection to work.


    Edit: Maybe it could be because I have a 4965... not 3945. Sorry, got confused with one of my other machines... =\

    Try it as root, instead of sudo and see what happens, generally it should produce the same result but, it might help to actually be root, in this case.

    Hi, I followed RollerDK guide and everything went without problem.
    I just installed compat-wireless-2.6.32-rc4.tar.bz2 instead of rc1.
    But now i noticed i don't have any wireless extensions in iwconfig output.

    dmesg | grep iwl3945
    shows sth like this:
    iwl3945: Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 3945ABG/BG Network Connection driver for Linux, 1.2.26kds
    iwl3945: Copyright(c) 2003-2009 Intel Corporation

    iwl3945 0000:04:00.0: setting latency timer to 64
    iwl3945 0000:04:00.0: Tunable channels: 13 802.11bg, 23 802.11a channels
    iwl3945 0000:04:00.0: Detected Intel Wireless WiFi Link 3945ABG
    iwl3945 0000:04:00.0: irq 28 for MSI/MSI-X
    iwl3945 0000:04:00.0: Failed to register hw (error -17)
    iwl3945 0000:04:00.0: PCI INT A disabled
    iwl3945: probe of 0000:04:00.0 failed with error -17
    How can i work around this problem? What's the cause? Please help.
    My laptop is Acer Extensa 5620, bt4 installed on USB, wifi card is intel 3945abg ofc.

    Hi There,
    nice tutorial, but having some issues with it.
    I have same problem as pentiak

    UDPATE:
    Has anyone tried this:
    This problem showed up before when a user was testing from compat-wireless. Moving to wireless-testing resolved the issue. The thread is at
    thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel.wireless.general/35983

    ???

    I dont have the laptop now and will be able to try it only next weekend

    Thanks a lot

    I have an Acer Aspire 5610Z. On it there is a sticker saying that "Contains Atheros Module AR5BXB63". Despite this, both in BT4 and in Ubuntu 9.10 the chosen driver is iwl3945, and not to complain or anything, but because of some unknown reason my Intel 3945 works out of the box with BT4 (except for the fact that wicd wasn't enabled by default, which I eventually found in the forum). Injection works, I've tested it with various aireplay attacks and everything is tip-top. Any comments or ideas why might this happen?
