    Default Intel Centrino 6300 N driver install on Back Track 5

    Hello all

    I've been hitting google hard the last few days with no results. I have a Intel wireless 6300 N card installed on my laptop but airmon or back track dont seem to see the chipset and version. I need some direction on getting the correct drivers installed to work with the aircrack suite. Any help or where to start would be greatly appreciated. The card will connect to my home access point and work fine although I cant seem to get the card into monitor mode or any functionality out of the aircrack-ng suite

    I read in one place that i needed to update the firmware of the card and was directed to intelwirelesslinux.org. There I downloaded and copied the iwlwifi-ucode-6000 and copied it into /lib/firmware with no result


    Code:
    root@bt:~# ifconfig wlan0
    wlan0     Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:24:d7:f3:d9:f0  
              inet addr:10.0.1.10  Bcast:10.0.1.255  Mask:255.255.255.0

    It isn't a problem with the card (most likely).

    Try this:

    Uninstall the aircrack-ng suite (airmon-ng is included in this) with this command:
    Code:
     apt-get autoremove aircrack-ng
    Then download the sources from the aircrack-ng website here:
    http://www.aircrack-ng.org/
    Extract the .tar file with this command:
    Code:
     tar -xf aircrack-ng-1.1.tar.gz
    You will need to update some of the SSL-dev files so run this before building from source:
    Code:
     apt-get install libssl-dev
    Enter the directory that was just extracted and then run:
    Code:
     make
    make install
    Reboot and everything should be good to go now.

    Just something about the suite not being installed correctly the first time I'm guessing. I really don't know why, I just reinstalled it when I was having the problem and it was fixed.

    Hello
    i have the same problem with no devices shown under the three words "interface ... ..." when i enter the "airmon-ng" command
    I've followed successfully all the steps you provided in the second post, but nothing changed
    What could be the reason?

    I am using Samsung R410 laptop with Windows Vista Home 32bit and running Backtrack 4 through VM Workstation
