I am doing some testing with my linksys roter, I have an atheros card (ath5k)
and I cant seem to associate with the ap, It doesnt have mac filtering enabled.
I have tried the following
Code:
iwconfig wlan0 ap xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx
and get an error as such
Code:
Interface wlan0 doesn't support MAC addresses
wlan0    Interface doesn't support MAC addresses
error for wireless request "Set AP Address" (8B1A):
      Invalid argument "xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx"
I censored my mac address
then i tried this
Code:
iwconfig wlan0 essid linksys channel 6 ap <xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx>
and I got
Code:
Error for wireless request "set ESSID" (8B1A):
     Set failed on device wlan0 : Operation not supported.
What am I doing wrong?
