    Default Problem getting WG511T in monitor mode

    Hi
    I'm trying setting my Netgear WG511T in monitor mode using Ubuntu 7.04.
    I have a feeling it is somewhat interfearing with my built in ipw2200 but I'm not sure.

    I've tried disabling both eth1 (ipw2200) and ath0 using "airmon-ng stop eth1" and "airmon-ng stop ath0". But they still show up in the iwconfig list and when I use airmon-ng stop ath0 I get error 537:wlanconfig not found.

    when "airmon-ng start ath0" I get VAP cannot be put in monitor mode
    when "airmon-ng start wifi0" I get unregognised wireless request "10" and device not found

    Any ideas, please? (yeah obvouisly run bt 2.0 but I would like to get it working in ubuntu)

    This would be a good starting point.

    You need to install the madwifi drivers first, they don't come pre-installed with Ubuntu and that's why you're getting the error messages. Go have a look at their site and you'll find out how to install them.

    You also need to stop ath0, and then start wifi0...ie:

    airmon-ng stop ath0
    airmon-ng start wifi0 <CHANNEL>

    Before anyone else tells you, this is a BackTrack forum...if you have aircrack issues on a different OS then they have their own site with forums for support.

    Thank you, I feel stupid, but I guess that is common on the newbie board.
