Hi!

Like the title implies, I am having some trouble using Aircrack-ng with my Belkin Surf & Share Wireless USB Adapter. Basically, when I try to run airmon-ng, nothing is listed, it's just empty. I don't know if this helps but, in wicd Network Manager there are plenty of Wifi-networks listed.

I have searched the Back|Track forums and found other threads concerning the same chipset, but none of them seem to have a solution that works for me. I have also been googling for hours and have found a bunch of forum posts and guides regarding the same chipset, but they won't help me either.

I am all new to Ubuntu and Back|Track, so if there is something that I forgot to mention, please tell so that I can provide that information.

Let me give you additional information:
  • I am running Back|Track 5 R2 GNOME on WMWare Player 4.0.2 build-591240
  • Host machine's OS is Windows 7 Ultimate, 32-bit 6.1.7601, Service Pack 1
  • The full name of the USB adapter is F7D2101
  • The chipset is RTL8192SU

I really hope you can help me out and I appreciate every answer.
Thanks in advance!
