    Post Alfa AWUS036NHA Problems

    Hello Guys,

    It seems that everyone has a problem with this particular card. I have recently bought it and having a problem with it. it doesn't show the interface when issuing the command airmon-ng. Also i couldn't connect to the internet through this card.

    I am running backtrack 5 R3 on Hdd ( side by side with windows prof 7 ). When booting and choosing Backtrack to boot, it boots normally if the card is not connected, However, if the card is connected it it gives me this error ( unable to enumerate USB device on port 2 ) once i unplug the card it boots normally and i get access the backtrack.

    after reconnecting it after booting, I issued the command airmon-ng it doesn't show anything but ( Interface Chipset Driver )


    also it might help addressing the problem, when i issue the command iwconfig it shows me 3 interfaces:

    1- lo no wireless .......

    2-eth0 ........

    3- wlan0

    IEEE 802.11abgn ESSIDff/any
    Mode:Managed Access Point: Not-Associated Tx-Power=off
    Retry long limit:7 RTS thrff Fragment thrff
    Encryption key : off
    Power Managementff


    my laptop is Sony Vaio


    Do you have any idea what is the problem and how can i connect to the internet through the alfa AWUS036NHA not through my integrated card.



    Thanks in Advance

    Having a similar issue with a Sont Vaio except mine wont recognize any kind of usb device. When something using usb is plugged in the system does nothing.

    Hi jeffmcormick,

    thanks for your update. I'm planning to buy ALFA Networks wireless card to play with WPA cracking and I'm choosing between:
    - AWUS036NH (known as working out of the box) or
    - AWUS036NHA (newer then AWUS036NH with Atheros AR9271 chipset) or
    - AWUS036NHR (the newest with Ralink RTL8188RU chipset)

    1. Does it mean that packet injection works correctly for 802.11n and 802.11g with AWUS036NHA card in bt5r3 and ubuntu 12.04?

    2. Did this card pass Injection test http://www.aircrack-ng.org/doku.php?id=injection_test ?

    3. Are you able to test it for 802.11n?

    Thanks in advance for your answers ;-)

    Looking forward,
    Przemek.
