    Is this only a problem when you try to monitor with the AR928 driver?

    I'm having issues when the AR928 card is my TARGET, so actually it has nothing to do with enabling monitoring or whatever. Maybe it is correlated and has the AR928 a secret ettercap security :d.

    I can use the browser. And wireshark captures lots of packages from eth0 and lo interfaces. But wicd manager will still not display any wireless networks. And i tried to change settings in preferences to wlan0 ..

    I'm using backtrack 3 final thru Vmware Workstation 7.1.2 build-301548 in order to hack a WEP password..but it seems like the Vmware cant detect my wireless card in my laptop which is Atheros AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter.

    The backtrack shows as below when i type in codes '-airmon-ng' & 'iwconfig'

    Backtrack 3 is no longer supported.
    @dakmeng, I have already told you to read the FAQ, it will answer to all your questions.

    I visited the FAQ section and im new to backtrack, it suggests that if backtrack doesnt recognize my card which is the same in this thread(Atheros AR9285) i should try the following command:

    /etc/init.d/networking start

    and i got this:

    done.
    .
    I'v also tried

    tar -xf /root/compat-wireless-2.6.32.3.tar.bz2
    cd compat-wireless-2.6.32.3
    root@bt:~# tar -xf /root/compat-wireless-2.6.32.3.tar.bz2
    root@bt:~# cd compat-wireless-2.6.32.3
    root@bt:~/compat-wireless-2.6.32.3#
    Which then i input "make" which gave me this:
    make -C /lib/modules/2.6.34/build M=/root/compat-wireless-2.6.32.3 modules
    make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-source-2.6.34'

    WARNING: Symbol version dump /usr/src/linux-source-2.6.34/Module.symvers
    is missing; modules will have no dependencies and modversions.
    and then i have no clue on what to do next. Ive tried putting "make install" which does nothing, so this is where im stuck.

    Any tips or advice would be much appreciated, and i am new to all of this so it'll be helpful if advice where newbie friendly. Thanks.

    Same problem here , kind of.

    I`m running BT4 via VMware and can`t seem to get my wifi card to work ( AR9285)

    ar -xf /path/to/compat-wireless-2.6.33.tar.bz2 - latest stable compat-wireless drivers

    cd /path/to/compat-wireless-2.6.33.tar.bz2

    ./scripts/driver-select - it will show you a list of supported hardware

    ./scripts/driver-select <driver-name> - VERY IMPORTANT - WRITE THE DRIVER FOR YOUR CARD. FOR ATHEROS - ath9k

    so

    ./scripts/driver-select ath9k

    make

    sudo make install


    Did all that and no errors as far as i can tell , still nothing show when i type iwconfig or airmon -ng.
    What am i doing wrong?

    PS : i can`t reboot because i lose all the settings , is it really necesary?
