Netgear WPN511 and airodump-ng
im new to linux and have been trying to crack my wep router for a while now.. started with ipw3945 - no luck, apparently did not support packet injection.. then tried belkin 7020 v5000 and then 9020 v3000uk - same problem..
now i have netgear wpn511 which is supported by backtrack2 but when im trying to start airodump-ng i get this error:
ioctl(SIOCSIWMODE) failed: invalid argument
Error setting monitor mode on wifi0
oh, forgot to mention when running airmon-ng it sets up a VPN wifi0 and ath0(parrent wifi0)
before doing airodump-ng ,you have to put your card in monitor mode
2) airmon-ng start wifi0
if just wifi0 is on the list otherwise do this
2)airmon-ng stop athX(X is a number)
3) do the first number 2)
You should see a list like this
ath0 (monitor mode)
and now you can do a airodump-ng ath0
You can force the card to monitor mode of your choice!
Try this Dude
airmon-ng start wifi0
wlanconfig ath0 destroy
ifconfig ath1 up
iwconfig ath1 mode monitor channel "6"
Without quotes of course this will force it to channel 6
So no matter what you choose in airodump, Eg, "airodump-ng --ivs --write sex --channel 1 ath1" the card will use 6 because u have specified the channel 6 command in iwconfig
Hope this helps
sorry I can't open a new topic outside the newbie area yet.
I'm working with my Belkin AP and my Netgear WPN511 card.
I can put it in monitor mode and I followed the steps in Exploitz tutorial to crack a wep when there are no associated clients.
I encountered the following issue:
after a long time no arp requests/replies and no packet are sent in aireplay.
Airodump shows that my wireless card signal has a power of -1
can that be the issue?
I mean: maybe I can't use the wpn511 in monitor mode and as an associated client at the same time, and I'm making a very basic mistake here...
