    Hi I have problem like this but on setting manually my card in monitor mode
    Code:
    iwconfig ath0 mode Monitor
    Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06) :
        SET failed on device ath0 ; Invalid argument.
    It's strange cause when I use Kismet work fine my card is put in monitor mode... why?
    My wireless card is an SMC WBC-G

    I do:
    ifconfig ath0 up
    then
    iwconfig ath0 mode Monitor
    but I have that error

    Thanks

    Code:
    airmon-ng start wifi0
    ath1 (VAP) is now your atheros card in monitor mode.
    Code:
    wlanconfig ath0 destroy
    (You don't want more than one VAP)
    "\x74\x68\x65\x70\x72\x65\x7a\x39\x38";

    Hi Sorry for my poor english.
    I've just started to use Back|track 2.0, and i need a lot of practice

    Actually i have a problem similar, and i can't change the mode of my card (ath0) to managed.

    I do :
    (airmon-ng only show wifi0)
    airmon-ng start wifi0
    iwconfig ath0 mode managed

    And i get the same error : Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06) :
    SET failed on device ath0 ; Invalid argument.

    My card is SCMWCBT-G.

    Thanks !
