    Default atheros monitor mode

    i cant get my atheros into monitor mode has the syntax changed or something. it connects to the internet right at start up, in B|t 2 i had to run kismet to load proper madwifi files, now i cant get kismet to even start. I didnt post this in the non working hardware forum because im not sure yet if its the hardware or if its me. the wireless card is a d-link g520.

    i tried
    ifconfig
    iwconfig ath0 mode monitor channel 6, and a couple other variations, any iput would be greatly appreciated.

    thanks,
    esco

    Uhmmm i don't got problems with my DWL-650....so just try this:


    1. Stop your ath0 card
    ifconfig ath0 down

    2. Delete this card

    wlanconfig ath0 delete

    3. Create a new athX device in monitor mode

    wlanconfig ath1 create wlandev wifi0 wlanmode monitor

    4. Check iwconfig ath1


    Does it help?

    But remember that it isn't possible to get a device from monitor mode back to managed mode - that seems to be a driver problem...


    To get kismet run you have to edit the kismet.conf

    the "source" must be edited like this (if you use madwifi drivers)

    source=madwifi_ag,wifi0,madwifi

    But it is recommended that you start kismet from console!


    Good Luck
