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
