Hi. I followed a few guides I found in the BT4Beta section and so far have gotten right up to injection with my new usb card. Right now I'm running the compat-wireless + rt2x00 driver or summat, the installation of which is detailed here:
hxxp://forums.remote-exploit.org/bt4beta-working-hardware/23407-alfa-awus050nh-rt2x00-compat-wireless.html

As you can see below, the mon0 created by airmon-ng start wlan0 passes the injection test, but wlan0 itself does not. Any attempt to do a fake auth association times out, and the possible reasons provided leads me to believe that my driver simply is incompatible?

I see a LOT of posts about this driver/hardware combo being utter fail, but there are some older ones that seem to document success, so here I ask for help from anyone.

Some output:
