    Default Airmon-ng on Alpha 400

    I recently got a alpha 400 netbook and upgrade the default os to "3xm".
    the os comes wit the aircrack-ng tools , how ever it does not recognize my netgear wg111v2 usb card nor will the internal centrino chips set (ipw3945) work when i run airodump-ng it returns

    ARP linktype is set to 1 (ethernet) . expected ARPHRD_IEEE80211
    or ARPHRD_IEEE80211_prism instead. Make sure RFMON is enabled:
    run 'ifconfig eth1 up; iwconfig eth1 mode monitor channel <#>"
    When i try iwconfig it says my centrino card is put into monitor mode, but still returns the same message when i run airodump again.

    As far as i can tell the centrino set is supported with bt4, and i know the netgear is.

    I have looked on many other sites and the most information i can find is that people have gotten it to work but nothing detailing how they did so.My netgear card shows up when i enter lsusb but its not recognized any where else.

    If any one has experience with the alpha your advise would be a big help.
    Thank you in advance.

    What does this have to do with Back Track?

    aircrack-ng is big part of backtrack...... and you can run on distros besides straight back track. so people may be running a set up similar to this so they can have backtrack on the go

    Let me make it a bit clearer for you, on this forum we do not support other Operating Systems. As such you may not get the best help that one may be able to get. We can't know all the "in's-and-out's" of other O/Ses.

    As for aircrack-ng they have their own extensive set of documentation, that will probably be of better help.
