    The problem with this card, (I assume) is that it can monitor but it doesn't support injection ? That's why it is able to read packages but not able to collect data package ?? Am I right about it ?
    Because it was like 560567 packages and nothing ..So I came up with a conclusion that my card doesn't support it ???

    The other question is that I have another wireless USB adapter which I couldn't get it work. I ve been reading stuff for more than 2 days. (I am a newbie) Some ppl claims that Ralink RT3572 v2 works with backtrack (works like a charm article in google ) and some people says it doesn't.

    So, I decided to figure it out myself ...

    But the problem is, although I downloaded the file and extract it .. and installed it ( I believe I did install it ) I can't get anywhere ...

    I don't know how to deactivate the other wireless adapter and use my Ralink RT3572 ...

    any1 can help me with this ?

    Default Re: Wireless Adapter Switching

    I am not completely familiar with your wireless USB adapter but I did have similar problems with my Sabrent adapter that is setup to work with Backtrack. I finally found this site Sabrent wireless USB adapter adapter review that helped me. The adapter wasn’t working correctly because the drivers needed to be reinstalled you may need to do the same thing just replace the chip being used.
