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)
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.
