    Exclamation Problems starting the wireless network card in monitor mode, dell inspiron n4110

    Backtrack 5 KDE, Hard disk installed


    I have problems starting the wireless network card in monitor mode, dell inspiron laptop n4110.

    I'm buy a usb wireless network card D-Link DWA-125, this card use the Ralink RT3070 chipset, i'm have installed Backtrack 5 distribution, and I could not fully execute some scripts. (airmon-ng related)

    This is the output of some commands that I executed:

    Code:

    Look here:
    http://www.backtrack-linux.org/forum...ad.php?t=46319

    And search on youtube this text: airmon-ng start wlan0 = iwconfig wlan0 mode monitor (Gentoo ~amd64 / Atheros AR9371)

    you can see an example
