    Default [FakeAP.pl] SET Failed on device wlan0

    Hello, trying to do a fakeAP in backtrack2 live cd

    i ran

    perl /pentest/wireless/fakeap-0.3.2/fakeap.pl --interface wlan0 --channel 1 --essid TEST

    it starts going ok, but then it says....
    Error for wireless request "Set ESSID" (8B1A):
    SET failed on device wlan0 ; Operation not permitted
    /sbin/iwconfig/sbin/iwconfigSIOCSIFHWADDR: Invalid argument


    FakeAP.pl, hasn't really got a forum for me to ask in, can I get help here?

    Thanks

    Is wlan0 a prism-based card?

    FakeAP requires "one or more Prism2/2.5/3 based 802.11b cards with the CVS version of the Host AP Driver for Intersil Prism2/2.5/3 working."

    Based on the fakeAP page, I'd say that is your problem...the program does not support your card.
