I'm a noob to both linux and backtrack so bare with me guys. Mainly I'm going to start using BT for basic WEP cracking and wardriving. Using kismet/airodump/aircrack/aireplay etc.
So I picked up my new WG511T today and I would appreciate a little help.
How do I set the card to Monitor mode? I've got an intel card with the ipw2100 chipset and it works perfectly just using:
So I quickly figured out it's a bit trickier with the WG511T card.
iwconfig eth1 mode monitor
...will just get me:
iwconfig ath0 mode monitor
I've google'd it and I've read there's a way around this. I actually got it to work but it was pretty confusing to me so I was hoping anyone would care to explain how to do it properly.
Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06) :
SET failed on device ath0 ; Invalid argument.
