    Attack -2/-3/-4/-6: OK
    Attack -5/-7: OK
    Injection is working!

    Enjoy

    note: I've edited with latest compat-wireless version and added linux-headers with a link to Module.symvers, it was needed:
    Code:
    WARNING: Symbol version dump /usr/src/linux-source-2.6.39.4/Module.symvers
               is missing; modules will have no dependencies and modversions.
    feel free to check if it is ok

    note2: After this upgrade, "FRITZ!WLAN USB STICK N", (based on Atheros AR9170 Chipset, using carl9170 driver) stop load his firmware. So.. download newer "carl9170-1.fw" (now is 1.9.4) from here http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/carl9170 in "/lib/firmware" and it will load

    It is working with Kde backtrack 5 rc1 fine now thank you

    but still some software is not working like
    Gerix wifi crack
    the problem when you start sniffing using airodump
    in finding clients is not working probable for Gerix but if you do it manually is fine

    hi
    ALFA AWUS036NHR chipset RTL8188RU will not work properly with rtl8192cu driver.

    I have same card as u do but *cu chipset and it work's just fine except it lock's down to fixed channel -1
    however this is solved by iw tool seting a fixed channel and other parameters.

    ALFA AWUS036NHR is the newest alfa card type and it will take some time until we got stable driver as for ALFA AWUS036NH (which is the best IMO)
    you may check for newest compat drivers from this site:
    Code:
    http://linuxwireless.org/download/compat-wireless-2.6/
    this release on the top is newer than your above.
    just CHECK THE DATES!

    good luck.

    escugs,
    first make shore u download and install compat-wireless drivers.
    then reboot your machine...
    then run commands as follows:

    Code:
    ifconfig wlan1 down
    iw dev wlan1 set channel 4
    ifup wlan1
    airmon-ng start wlan1
    airodump-ng --ignore-negative-one mon0
    just replace values "wlan1" and "4" with your's
    now u shall be able to capture packets on channel 4
    probably will still showing u that interface is locked down to fixed channel -1 but it will be actually on channel 4 or which one you specify!
    if u don't have iw tool download it from linux-wireless.

    cheers mate.

    Okay, I'm kind of a noob. But this will work with cracking wpa/wpa2-psk or do I stand corrected?

    Done all the above.
    Loaded up, in Network manger could see plenty of access points but when tried to connect to my regular connection it just hung for long time.
    rebooted.
    Tried airmong-ng stop wlan0
    hung again for long time, again give up.
    Used the latest compact driver.
    **************
    Also this adapter in Windows 7 sucks, it picks up more access points and shows stronger signals but its throughput is rubbish.
    I still end up using my old TL-WN821N which has more solid throughput.

    Compat-wireless drivers are not stable for this chip, If you need to connect APs you can use Realtek's one you can find here:
    http://www.realtek.com/downloads/dow...&GetDown=false (chip RTL8188RU)
    Realtek's drivers does not support monitor mode and injection, so I still prefer compat-wireless.
