    Default problem getting wireless drivers updated.

    I was trying to get injection working with my rtl8187 wifi card and thought to update my compact wireless drivers here: Compat-wireless - BackTrack Linux but the 2nd wget link doesn't work and im wondering if there is an alternative link or if someone could fix it?

    If you are referring to the patches, you can get them from the aircrack official site.

    Well if you could give us more details in what do you mean by "can't get injection to work" maybe someone could help you.

    8187 is honestly not worth it.. You can get an RT73 chipset USB adapter on ebay for under $10 shipped...

    Even if you get the 8187 working it won't be working well..

    I have a gsky usb that uses rtl8187 and injection works for me. How far are you from your AP? And this is your AP correct? The only problem that I had with getting rtl8187 chipset to work was kicking it, when the rfkill turned off the radio of the card. But in the wiki of backtrack there is a solution to do that. But once I got my rtl8187 off of hard block in the rfkill. I was able to injection properly. But What kind of dbm ant. are you using? I also know that when you are a certain distance, injection fails. I never measured how far but thats my findings. Oh also which brand of the rtl8187 chipset are you using?
