    I am a noob, butt wanted to say that I was able to get the AWUS036NHR working and injecting (on KDE and Gnome). I actually followed this instructions at the begining of this thread with two minor changes:

    +First,for KDE, I changed the build and installation drivers wget

    Code:
    cd /usr/src/
    wget http://www.orbit-lab.org/kernel/compat-wireless/2012/04/compat-wireless-2012-04-15.tar.bz2
    tar jxpf compat-wireless-2012-04-15.tar.bz2
    wget http://www.backtrack-linux.org/2.6.39.patches.tar
    tar xpf 2.6.39.patches.tar
    cd compat-wireless-2011-10-06
    make
    make install
    +Second, I kept the udev persistent rules on my card.


    As for Gnome I made the same changes except pointed them to the correct drivers. As for the patches I read that the 2.6.39.patches.tar were also for the current version of Gnome as of 20Apr.

    +First,for KDE, I changed the build and installation drivers wget

    Code:
    cd /usr/src/
    wget http://www.orbit-lab.org/kernel/compat-wireless-3.0-stable/v3.2/compat-wireless-3.2.5-1.tar.bz2
    tar jxpf compat-wireless-3.2.5-1.tar.bz2
    wget http://www.backtrack-linux.org/2.6.39.patches.tar
    tar xpf 2.6.39.patches.tar
    cd compat-wireless-3.2.5-1
    make
    make install
    (When I did the make and make install command, I recieved some errors. So I ignored them and didn't write them down because I am a noob.)

    +Second, I kept the udev persistent rules on my card.

    As a result, I used aircrack-ng in KDE and Gerix in Gnome to successfully crack my WEP.

    I tried to install the linux driver for this device to work on backtrack 5 but I couldn't install it so I gave up. I tried editing the driver but it didn't change anything. My question is I use a windows laptop will this linux driver conflict with the windows driver making it change it's functionality? Does the driver install on the device or on the actual computer? Also Isn't the linux driver that's supposed to work in Backtrack 5 the same that's included with the mini cd of this device? Thanks for any help

    Timmylee --

    I have not installed the driver on BT(BackTrack) 5. I accomplished this on BT 5r2. I chose not to use the drivers supplied with the mini CD or edit the driver. My thought process was that even though the drivers should be the same, I would prefer the drivers promoted through BT and associated websites.

    As for the drivers, they are being installed on the computer. (Firmware is usually installed directly to the devices.) There will not be a conflict of drivers especially when running BT through a VM(Virtual Machine) program. For instance, I have two laptops that I use for testing OSs. One laptop, I have installed the drivers for the wireless card in the windows environment and then I installed it to the BT VM. The second laptop, I did not install the wireless card in the windows environment, but I installed it in the BT VM environment. Within both instances, there were no confilcts and I was able to do what I wanted to within BT. I am not sure if I answered your question.

    AWUS036NHR vs. AWUS036H (or different adapter all together)



    Hey, I'm going to be getting a "long range" wifi adapter soon for my laptop cuz the integrated intel PRO/Wireless 3915ABG sux. I have been looking around and reading a bunch of reviews and have came to the conclusion that I'll be going with an Alfa USB adapter. But I'm still torn between the 2 models. The newest model "AWUS036NHR" which is draft N and uses the "RTL8188RU" chipset and the more tried and true (according to what i've found looking online) Model "AWUS036H" which uses the "RTL8187" chipset.

    The main reason why I wanted this new adapter is to increase range and find more networks some of which could possibly be N networks. However, I'd also like to be able to do packet injection so i can test networks . So I'd probably have more and better connectivity with the newer "NHR", but I have been searching around and can't seem to find any drivers for the "RTL8188RU" chipset that do packet injection. So as far as Network testing goes, I'd probably be better off with the older "H". Sound about right so far????

    BTW... for network testing I am using backtrack 3 final (live cd) and once I get windows up and running again (currently have blue screen of death) I will probably upgrade to latest version of BT (or possibly ubuntu or some other linux). And for general computer use I use windows xp. Also keep in mind that before a couple of months ago, when i got blue screen, I have never used linux or any other OS besides windows so I'm a complete noob. Also above all else, whatever adapter I get will have to work in BOTH LINUX and WINDOWS

    So what I wanna know is, what adapter would I be better off getting? the "NHR" or the "H"? Or is there another adapter made by someone else with a different chipset that would be even better (for range, or injection, or both)? And the last question I have is about antennas. the alfa's (on amazon) are sold with a few different antenna types/ratings and I was wondering how much of a difference the antenna will make. I can get both the "NHR" and the "H" with either of the following antenna(s) with the prices varying by only a few dollars.
    1.)5dBi omni directional
    2.)5dBi and 9dBi omni directional
    3.)5dBi omni directional and 7dBi directional (panel) antenna

    according to a bunch of reviews, the 7dBi directional antenna works the best, but then multiple reviews claim that the 5dBi omni works better than the 9dBi omni (both alfa brand) which doesn't seem logical to me (the 2 omni's anyways) So Just wondering as far as range is concerned would I be better off getting the adapter with the panel antenna? the antenna and adapter (no matter which ones) will be inside my house.

    This turned out way longer than I expected. If anyone can help this noob out, I'd really appreciate it..... hopefully today. I would like to order one today so I can get by mid to end of next week. Thanks.

    Unhappy Re: ALFA AWUS036NHR - chip RTL8188RU - compat-wireless driver rtl8192cu

    Hi,

    I see this thread has been idle for a while, but hope I can still get a reply. I have Backtract 5 R3 running on a VM on my MBP. I'm using Virtual Box.

    I bought an Alfa AWUS036NHR and am trying to use it from the BT VM. So it seems BT5 R3 has support for this card by default.

    Ok so I am able to:

    Code:
    airmon-ng start wlan0
    airodump mon0
    And this all works fine. I also receive "Injection is working!" when testing with aireplay-ng:

    Code:
    aireplay -9 mon0
    But I am not able to do the following:

    1. Change the txpower of the card above 20dBi. I have tried everything for the last week. I have made and installed my own custom reg-db and am able to switch to regions with higher txpowers ie. "iw reg set BO". But when every I try to up the txpower I receive an error "Error for wireless request 'Set Tx Power' (8B26) SET failed on device wlan0 ; Invalid argument" when doing:
    Code:
    ifconfig wlan0 down
    iw set reg BO
    iwconfig wlan0 txpower 30
    2. I cannot connect to any network. I have tried to connect to 3 different AP with what I am sure to be the correct WPA2 password. Wicd simply keeps saying "Bad password".

    Any help will be much appreciated.
