    I'm not sure if my apt-get dist-upgrade worked right or what. I was missing most/all my modules. I unpacked the linux-source-2.6.34-rc6 in /usr/src and copied the /proc/config.gz over to rebuild it.

    I am now able to put the "Ralink Technology, Corp. RT2870 Wireless Adapter" in monitor mode and fire up airodump-ng. But it doesn't show anything.. I had this problem with the 2.6.30.9 before I upgraded. I'm worried its a hardware failure. I had it working about a week ago on the 2.6.30.9 kernel. I'll verify its not hardware before I go any further with it.


    NOTE: I am rebuilding my kernel with HID support as a module. I'm not sure how it was built with the 2.6.30.9 kernel, but that might be what is causing problems with my touch screen. But it will be a few hours before my poor little Atom will finish the build.

    can you list all the patches that are used in that new kernel

    why did you not compile modules for AWUS036NH
    also airdrop-ng is not compiled

    We are not interested in tracking broken applications as much as hearing how your hardware is fairing – particularly wireless cards, injection support, etc.

    I noticed the rt2860.bin firmware file is missing from /lib/firmware so you may be missing your necessary firmware file as well. Also, can someone provide specific instructions for building/installing the rt2800pci driver? I tried the usual ./config, make, make install but it did not work (did you have to download additional files?) I'd like to test this out for the project if at all possible...

    Thanks!

    Thumbs up Re: BackTrack 4 R1 Development release

    A follow-up to my previous post (sry about double-posting ):

    The situation remained unchanged even after I ran install_bcm43xx_firmware.sh.

    However on my Ubuntu installation I applied the following quick and VERY UGLY workaround:
    1. I installed both the wl and the b43 drivers.
    2. I downloaded and installed the broadcom-wl-4.178.10.4.tar.bz2 firmware as advised.
    3. I blacklisted the open-source drivers in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-bcm43.conf.
      Code:
      # Warning: This file is autogenerated by bcmwl. All changes to this file will be lost.
      blacklist b43
      blacklist b43legacy
      blacklist ssb
      blacklist bcm43xx
      #blacklist wl
    4. I put the following in /etc/rc.local:
      Code:
      #!/bin/sh -e
      #
      # rc.local
      #
      # This script is executed at the end of each multiuser runlevel.
      # Make sure that the script will "exit 0" on success or any other
      # value on error.
      #
      # In order to enable or disable this script just change the execution
      # bits.
      #
      # By default this script does nothing.
      
      modprobe -r wl
      modprobe b43 hwtkip=1 hwpctl=1
      /etc/init.d/network-manager restart
      exit 0


    As you can see, I use the proprietary driver to ... initialise?... the wlan card then unload it and use the open-source driver to use it. Injection and monitor mode work flawlessly.

    I have attached the dmesg output. dmesg.zip

    I hope this helps to fix this bug .

    I have a dell mini 10v with a "Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g (rev 01) - wireless adapter"

    -Packet Injection works 100%
    -AirDrop works 100%

    but there's a few error comes out when bootin.. but it seems it doesnt affect the wireless adapter cuz i can use AirCrack suite Perfectly. but i will still post it below..

    root@bt:~# dmesg | grep -ni error
    728:b43-phy0 ERROR: Fatal DMA error: 0x00000400, 0x00000000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000
    729:b43-phy0 ERROR: This device does not support DMA on your system. Please use PIO instead.
    730:b43-phy0: Controller RESET (DMA error) .
