    Default ALFA NETWORKS awus051NH not workong with backtrack 4

    Hello all, this is my first post, I purchased an alfa network usb adapter, awus051nh.Now when I am in backtrack and I write :

    "iwconfig"

    it gives back the following:

    lo: no wireless extensions
    eth0: no wireless extensions
    ra0: Ralink STA.
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    Ok, fair enough. Now when I try to write airomon-ng, I would expect to get some sort of interface list or something. Except whenI press airmon-ng I get back absolutely nothing under the "chipset" "interface" "drvier" bit.

    NO ari cracking wuite works with my card, I don't understand this should be a compatible card what is wrong? do I have to install a driver in vmware/BT4 ?

    Why didn't you buy a card that is clearly supported on the aircrack-ng wiki? Buying an unknown/unsupported card is asking for trouble.

    Alfa network cards are supposed to be supported fully.
    I don't know what's wrong?

    There are other posts on other forums that say that it works?

    I just checked the aircrack-ng wiki every single alfa network card is supported , and well recommended on the forum.

    I have even seen on some other forums similar to this one praising the compatibility of my model (awuso51nh) . I just cannot understand what is happening?
    Do I need to install drivers in vmware/backtrack?

    If you have to post three times in a row to obtain help theres a good chance that help might not be forthcoming. Try posting at the aircrack-ng forums.

    Was there a particular reason you decided to revive a thread from 2010
