    Default How To Enable Intel® PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Card In Backtrack

    I'm a bit noob to linux/backtrack about 3 weeks in now. And I couldn't find a dedicated guide on how to enable this card, so when I stumbled across the answer I thought i'd share it. At the beginning I found a few of the guides a little hard to follow. So I've made this as easy to follow as I can. Hope it's of use. Sorry if it comes across a little patronising.


    Open a console and type


    cd /usr/src/drivers/ipw3945-1.2.0


    Hit enter then type


    load


    Hit enter


    Your Intel® PRO/Wireless 3945ABG can now be found at eth1




    For Those of you that have backtrack2 installed on your hdd. To save typing all that in every time you restart.



    Open a console and type


    alias 3945="cd /usr/src/drivers/ipw3945-1.2.0"


    Hit enter


    now all you have to do to enable your Intel® PRO/Wireless 3945ABG is type



    3945

    Hit enter


    load


    Hit enter


    replace 3945 with whatever keyword you want as I only used it as an example

    Maybe im missunderstanding what you are trying to solve, but wouldnt it just be easier to boot with bt irqpoll

    I think this is what he types in to load his card. So instead of typing all the commands, he makes it use a alias word. What does bt irqpoll do and when do you type it (before startx?)

    i'm not sure that is the hardware not able to inject, but i think is that aireplay-ng that does not support injection on the ipw3945 hardware.

    If i'm right, you can use "scapy" to inject manipulated packet, but it's harder to use !!!

    You can also just do this:
    /sbin/ipw3945d

    That will also load the drivers for your card.

    For those interesting in packet injection, you may want to check this out: (forums.remote-exploit.org/showthread.php?t=6295&highlight=mac80211)
    Check out the third link that he posted (I can't post links yet, not enough posts).

    I haven't been able to get it to work yet, but it looks promising. I think the problem with packet injection is the intel drivers don't support it.

    in order to test injection

    ifconfig eth0 up
    iwconfig eth0 mode monitor
    aireplay -9 eth0


    will test injection but you need to have aircrack 0.9 suite ......

    What am I missing here? In the Linux Distribution wifimay-0.4, it looks like they achieved injection. Refer to
