After flashing the firmware on my Prism 2.5 based wireless card (Zcomax XI-325), blacklisting the orinoco drivers and enabling the hostap drivers, I am finally able to properly inject!
As of right now, I have injected 430,000+ packets at a average rate of 250 packets per second (using the stock antenna).
Just now, aircrack has found the WEP key! My first successful WEP crack!
