I'm trying to get my RT2860 wireless adapter to do packet injection. I installed the compat-wireless drivers as described here http://www.backtrack-linux.org/forum...ad.php?t=37549, that seemed to work well, my new driver is called RT2800PCI as described there and I can connect to the internet.
I make sure the adapter is UP and in monitor mode, then run a probe request using aireplay-ng -9 ra0 (which is my adapter as listed in iwconfig). It comes back with "Trying broadcast probe requests...No answer..Found 3 APs" (or whatever number, depending on channel).
When it tries directed probe requests, I get 0/30: 0%.
I'm on BT5 RT3 HDD Gnome 32-bit
on a MSI Wind u100 (yeah, old)
If you want to see any output from commands, let me know! Thanks in advance for any replies.
Update #1: I think the problem is that I've failed to uninstall the old driver? I've added it to the blacklist, but it seems to be running anyway.
When I run modprobe -r rt2860sta it comes back with "Fatal: Module rt2960sta is in use". The driver should now be rt2800pci after installing compat-wireless, right?
Update #2: I realised from the lsmod that the old driver was in use, so I disabled the wireless card and successfully removed the driver. On reboot, the rt2800pci-driver seems to load fine, it lists ra0 (my interface) in ifconfig and iwconfig. However, it now finds no APs, even on channel 6 (where I know my AP is located), and I got some error about bus (disappeared quickly) when trying to connect to Wicd - that also states that no networks are found.
Update #3: Oops, seems the original driver wasn't as gone as I thought. It came back after a boot! I must have done something wrong when installing compat-wireless...
If anyone can help, it would be greatly appreciated! :S
