hi there,

I have 2 Latops. One with a "ipw2100" chipset. The other one is an Acer Aspire 3690 with a built in broadcom card.
I've watched some the Tutorial Videos posted in this forum. I've also tried this tutorial: smallnetbuilder.com/content/view/30114/98/

None of it seems to be working.

The "ipw2100" works with BT2, but doesn't seem to support aireplay.
The broadcom card won't connect to the internet in BT2. Monitor mode does work, however, I don't get the ARP mode to work. It just reads packets, but APR requests and sent packets stay at 0.

I wasn't able to install aircrack-ng 0.9.1 along with the current BT2 release on my Acer laptop. Could this be of any benefit?

Therefore, is there any way, to get either my "ipw2100" or "broadcom" card to work? Maybe through kernel patching or a newer BT / aircrack release or maybe using a different cracking method?

Is there any hope?

thank you
