    Default airmon-ng on BT5R1 not identifying any cards

    Just installed BT5R1 and noticed that airmon-ng doesn't work at all. I have an Intel Centrino ABGN card and a TP-Link Atheros based USB card and neither of them show up in airmon. Tried a number of variants of the airmon command but no luck. Note that both cards work perfectly for everything else, can associate to APs, run kismet etc.

    Any ideas?

    Looks like I fixed the problem myself. Started out with removing aircrack-ng.

    Code:
    apt-get autoremove aircrack-ng
    Then download the latest version from the aircrack-ng site http://www.aircrack-ng.org/

    unzip the tarball

    Code:
    tar -zxvf aircrack-ng-1.1.tar.gz
    make and make install

    Code:
    make
    make install
    and I was back in business

    Code:
    root@bt:~/aircrack-ng-1.1# airmon-ng
    shell-init: error retrieving current directory: getcwd: cannot access parent directories: No such file or directory
