    You're right guys. I'm using native driver. Very sorry for misinformation.

    As you can see, I'm using bcm43xx.

    I thought I was using ndiswrapper because I added 'blacklist bcm43xx' line in blacklist file and changed alias from wlan0 to eth1 in ndiswrapper file.
    But now I see there's no bcm43xx blacklisted.

    Sorry again for hope that you may use fully functional ndiswrapper. I'm afraid it's impossible. Shame on me.

    If it returns, you are not using ndiswrapper.

    I'm telling because when I use bcm43xx (native module), my card comes as eth1, BUT when I use ndiswrapper, my card comes as wlan0, and DOESNT support monitor mode.

    I have tried with both, iwconfig and airmon-ng.

    theprez98, I've read about that, ndiswrapper doesnt support monitor mode, but I thought it supports because zonkers said. But for me, it doesnt work.

    When I use the native module (bcm43xx), I can put my card in monitor mode, by iwconfig (I usually get iwconfig) or airmon-ng, but like I said, my signal is a shit, and if I have an AP at 2mts near of me, my signal is about 50%.

    btw, if you get your card working well and monitor mode with ndiswrapper, this is nice! I didnt get same
    From the ndiswrapper FAQ:
    Is master mode or promiscuous mode supported?

    No! NDIS doesn’t support Master/Repeater/Monitor modes. The only modes supported are Ad-Hoc and Managed. Note that some drivers may support features that are not in NDIS e.g., showing signal noise and possibly Master mode, but they are proprietary and no documentation available for them, so such features won’t be supported by ndiswrapper.
    There is no reason to use ndiswrapper with a Broadcom card! The bcm43xx drivers support monitor mode, and some cards will even inject.

    No problem Zonkers! Im sure your information will be very useful for somebody, this is one more way for many people!

    theprez98, I know we have bcm43xx module native, and I use it. The reason was that I dont have a good signal with this module, that is UNSTABLE under Broadcom 4318 chipset yet. Maybe it get better on newer versions, but now it doesnt.

    As I said at another thread, when I have an AP near me (about 2mts), I got a signal of 50%. I dont think this is good, but I dont have another way
    If you can help us (broadcom chipset owners), please, do it

    Zonkers, I repeat, very thanks for the time wasted.

    Rgds,
    Adriano.
