Ok first of all i am very computer literate person on windows side but über newbie on linux universe. I am still learning stuff everyday but first of all i want to be able to use that aircrack tools.
I have a Dell inspiron 6000 notebook and Netgear WG511T pcmcia card. And armed with nicely working fresh backtrack2 installation. Now here's my problems ;
After searching and checking the MAC adresses i identified my pcmcia wg511t is known as Ath0 under iwconfig list, but when i try "iwlist ath0 scan" it says " Interface doesn't support scanning : Network is down " . One of my main question is how can i see or check whether any driver for my wg511t installed or not. As long as i have bt2 there is madwifi drivers on the system but does my atheros card uses them ? How can i learn this information and if not how can i install (patch) with latest madwifi drivers. I tried the instructions on " aircrack-ng.org/doku.php?id=madwifi-ng " but i got error at " patch -Np1 -i ../madwifi-ng-r2277.patch " step although i wrote the full file path correctly.
i was planning to write more but my head is aching after a whole day linux experience. i ll be glad and happy id somebody shed some light on my newbie problems and help to keep discover linux world
Watch your back, your packetz will belong to me soon... xD
