    I am running Backtrack5 r2 and r3 on windows 7 and with Vmware Player
    running x64 and Genome

    Here i would like to inform you guys that i have awus036NHR and it is "plug and play" on Backtrack 5 r3 (but i noticed somthing that it detected less APs)
    But on BT5 r2 you need to install drivers .
    i installed the drivers for linux in cd that came with alfa .
    after that i was able to INJECT, MONITOR

    i was able to successfully run

    aireplay-ng -9 wlan0

    airodump-ng mon0

    and i was successfully able to find the key of my own WEP AP .

    NOW IN THE END I JUST WANTED TO ASK (as i was successfully able to find the key of my AP) does that mean my card is fully compatible with everything ? and is perfectly working ? or there are some other things i need to test my alfa adapter for ?
    sorry if this question sounds bit odd but i m new to backtrack and wifi testing

    So I recently received my AWUS036NHR. The package is missing some accessories so I'm in the process of contacting the seller

    Anyway, I'm running BT5 r3 and the card is picked up right away. Put it in monitor mode and ran airodump and nothing shows up. So that's great. Guess I'm not one of the lucky ones. Also can't increase the Tx power over 20.

    So next I go find the latest compat wireless drivers and install them. Now the card is working in airodump although it seems to not be showing associations. One came up when there should have been a lot. Stations were showing up but just the one was associated. Did a comms test against my test WEP router and injection works fine. The only issue is that the card isn't channel hopping in airodump. You have to manually tell it what channel to listen on.

    So I restart airodump capturing IVs, successfully fake-auth with aireplay, and start an ARP replay with aireplay. It starts fine and the ARP requests start coming almost immediately but very slowly. Something like bursts of 5-7 requests every 1 or 2 seconds. Airodump shows the data packets going up for that AP in a somewhat similar manner but bigger bursts (which is usually the opposite of what normally happens). Compared to my built in Atheros AR9287, it's just pathetic. At a strong signal, the built in card can generate 40,000 ARP requests in less than a minute and up to 7-8 minutes for a low signal. At the speed this Alfa is going, like 400 ARP requests and 1000 data packets in airodump a minute, it would take 40 minutes to gain 40,000 IVs.

    So I decided to leave it running anyway and it errors out around 2500 ARP requests. I have two terminals open and one says error: network down, the other says something like wifi_read() error or something similar. Basically, the card froze. Have to unload and reload the driver before the card responds again. Tried again and this time it froze at like 800 ARP requests, like the whole laptop froze requiring a hard reboot. So these drivers are garbage. Tried the instructions in the first post of this thread, same thing but now it channel hops properly. Tried the same instructions but with updated drivers from another post in this thread and same thing.

    So airodump works without any associations, injection works, wpa association works, wash didn't find any WPS APs even though it should have, and it can fake-auth properly. Changing tx power works if you make the necessary change like was said in another post in this thread. Oddly enough it won't let me set it past 30 but sometimes when I bring the card up it defaults to 33.

    What's good about it? It works well in windows (not sure of the tx power though?). The sensitivity of the card is light years beyond the built-in one. Was only picking up 6 networks before but this Alfa picks up around 14 sitting on the table and almost 30 sitting in the window. When we go visit my father in the summers, he lives on a fairly small island with no internet. Some of the family around me are just too far for the built-in card to connect to. This Alfa will definitely come in handy.

    So would I recommend this card? At this point if you're just looking for a boost in range for windows, then yes. Although the card says up to 150 mbps compared to the built-in standard 450 mbps (which nobody ever hits anyway). For BT, I would have to say no. When researching the other cards there's the NHA which is supported well but low power, the 036NH and 051NH, which are buggy and unstable, and the H which is legendary but lacks N support. So guess I'm stuck waiting for proper working drivers?

    So let's say I uninstall these compat-wireless drivers, how would I reinstall the stock drivers that come with BT5 r3 without reinstalling Backtrack?

    I bought my alfa awus036nhr, recently but i am having some problems. I instaled rtl8188ru driver on windows 7 32-bit and i am having an good signal but my speed is very slow its about 10kb/s, after that i instaled rtl8192cu driver and i am with the same network having a low signal but the speed is 150kb/s, but the speed of the network should be 500kb/s and that speed i am getting with some other wifi card. What should i do? Should i install some other driver on my alfa, or something else? Tnx

    Hey guys,

    I just tried out different distros to get the most performance out of my Awus036NHR. Here is what I tried:

    Backtrack 5 r3 with compat-wireless-2012-12-18.tar.bz2 drivers VMWARE
    hopes were high to get the best performance this way.. I used this method to increase power to 33db (2000Mhz)
    Unfortunately I don't pick up a lot of AP's.. I changed to the original ALFA linux drivers and got way more AP's with WICD but no monitoring mode obviously!

    Reaver and airmon are working, can put the card into monitor mode but airodump can't show associated clients and AP connection works patchy. It shows more AP's than the other distros..





    Backtrack 5 r3 USB Thumb drive

    With the standard Thumb drive installation I seem to have the same problems as with the VMWare image , not surprising... I wanted to test this because some users reported to have the chipset better working using USB thumb drive methodl

    Xiaopan 0.4.4

    This is my favorite distro at the moment. It doesn't provide the flexibility and the amount of tools BT5r3 has to offer obviously! I still have the same issues as with backtrack but everything works in a simple manner. Reaver seems to work better but it picks up less AP's. WICD and a web browser would be a nice addition to this distro!



    Beini 1.2.3 built for RTL8188RU

    Even though this was built especially for my chipset I had massive problem with this. This might be because it's pretty outdated. I was able to put my card into monitor mode but when scanning for networks, I couldn't pick up any AP's


    Does anyone have other suggestions what to try to get WICD and airodump working better?
