but normally it will look like this
better go have a look at the aircrack site and look over the commands real quick like.Code:bt~# airmon-ng start wlan0
That will give you more info about the commands.
hope that helps
With the alfa airmon in not needed. A simple
bt~#iwconfig wlan0 mode monitor
bt~#iwconfig wlan0 mode managed
will get you back and forth with ease.
I've read somewhere that it is not possible to connect to a protected network with the alfa under BT2 - In other words, not possible to set a key with the alfa under BT2.
Lets test under BT3.
I am not sure why you are trying to set a key while your card is in MONITOR mode (monitor mode is useful for scanning, you cannot access internet with it). If you need to connect to your AP, your card needs to be in MANAGED mode. So try to put your card in managed mode then retry your key. Simply run:
#iwconfig wlan0 mode managed
This an an awesome tutorial I have only run into one small problem which im sure somebody can help me with. Connection looks great, nothing wrong there, but when I go to use firefox or another browser I get " Firefox is configured to use a proxy server that is refusing connections"
Im just lost as to how to configure it otherwise. Im using an Atheros card btw.
I just wonder if it's so difficult for someone who knows how to configure backtrack to wrote an complete "how to"regarding network config on backtrack...
I read all but I don't understand how to configure my eth0 whit an static IP.
I don't want to use DHCP (someone can tell me "use nodhcp".... but how??? )
I don't find anny /etc/network/interfaces.
It is annoing to set IP every time when I reboot my PC.
Off topic: How can I enable copy/paste whit mouse right click
What can I do to make an alias to remain after reboot?
Just installed BT2 2 Final onto my hard disk and I have a problem where my Netgear 511T keeps on losing its connection to the AP. As soon as it loses the connection, it reconnects after a few seconds.
I've tested the card in Windows and it works fine, the problem seems to lie with Linux.
I'm finding this very frustrating to be honest, and I'm hoping someone here may possibly suggest a fix.
Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
Thanks for this howto.
