    hi tortuga, if you are considering to buy this one, I would suggest you AWUS036H.
    I have it both, AWUS036H is still the best choice, but no N support.
    I have the same problem obelix99 has, but I use AWUS036NHR only for inject (when I need more power) and AWUS036H for dump.
    I will try latest compat-wireless asap (...too busy these days) and let you know

    Hi!

    I followed the instructions to the letter, but when I try iwconfig I get "lo no wireless extensions.".

    Wicd network manager also shows nothing...

    What did I miss?
    Do I need to load a specific driver somewhere? How?

    Thanks!


    p.s. VMware fresh install BT5r1 gnome32

    Hi folks, I just wondered what you had raised the txpower to with these cards?

    From what I've read the Alfa devices aren't actually as strong as what they're supposed to be - by default with the latest compat-wireless drivers I can get working it runs at 20dBm - just wondered what rate you guys were running these at?

    30 would get it to around 1mW, and 33 would be 2mW, but from what I can tell it shouldn't actually run as high as that as the aerial bring that level up?

    There's no FCC id on the back of mine so I can't actually read what they've tested it at?

    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.
    I already check for the updates but once I installed the latest driver, during airdump-ng session, Alfa AWUS036NHR show nothing in the terminal.. Does it related with patches from http://www.backtrack-linux.org/2.6.39.patches.tar? During downloading the driver, I used this command:
    Code:
    wget http://linuxwireless.org/download/compat-wireless-2.6/compat-wireless-2012-02-24.tar.bz2
    tar jxpf compat-wireless-2012-02-24.tar.bz2
    wget http://www.backtrack-linux.org/2.6.39.patches.tar
    tar xpf 2.6.39.patches.tar
    cd compat-wireless-2012-02-24.tar.bz2
    patch -p1 < ../patches/mac80211-2.6.29-fix-tx-ctl-no-ack-retry-count.patch 
    patch -p1 < ../patches/mac80211.compat08082009.wl_frag+ack_v1.patch 
    patch -p1 < ../patches/zd1211rw-2.6.28.patch
    patch -p1 < ../patches/ipw2200-inject.2.6.36.patch
    make
    make install
    I changed the driver version as MANZAMANNA posted above and then I changed the driver version as you suggested.

    Have there been any updates or new patches available on this issue?

    Using the instructions in the first post, my card finally works in monitor mode but I can' t associate any client.

    Just for info, this now appears to work out of the box with BT5 R2.

    The driver used still won't let you go above 20, although you can work around this by modifying the compat-wireless drivers are recompiling yourself, I did notice that my VM began to hang if the txpower is set above 31, although at 31 it's rock solid.

    I now have BT5 R2, but all the BSSIDs are still showing up as 'not associated'. Has anyone figured out a driver patch?

    Hi everyone!
    I use VirtualBox and Backtrack 5 R2. So when I plug in my AWUS036NHR, I can see it using ifconfig. Then I use command:
    Code:
    airmon-ng check kill
    airmon-ng start wlan0
    iwconfig wlan0 channel 11
    iwconfig mon0 channel 11
    After that I run Wireshark and start sniffing on mon0, but I can only sniff Beacon frames, Probe Request, Data (just "Data") and some ARP & DHCP packets. No association packets, no authentication packets, no other packets. Early I used the manual in the beginning of the topic, it patched my kernel, but once I could sniff different types of packets, but only once.

    Airodump-ng works well, but I cannot see client's STA.

    Sorry for my English. If anybody know how solve this problem, please, help.
