    Exclamation AWUS036h ERROR Max retransmists

    Hello all, when I try to run wesside-ng on ANY AP, even if I'm standing right beside it 2 feet away, wesside-ng keeps saying

    ERROR Max retransmists or (30 bytes)

    What the hell is up with this? What is wrong? Other people on the web are doing it fine.. the adapter seems to be working and goes into monitor mode etc just fine.

    Can any AWUS036h owner please help

    Thanks in advance!

    Yup. Happens to me too. I quickly picked these tools up now, and was using wesside-ng, easside-ng and buddy-ng at the same time as per the aircrack-ng tut. My outputs:

    buddy-ng
    Code:
    root@bt:~# buddy-ng

    Got connection from 127.0.0.1
    That was it

    easside-ng

    See, easside is dying on me. While running easside-ng, I'm running wesside-ng and using the prga.log from easside-ng:

    IDK what to tell you. Maybe we're using the tools incorrectly?

    FYI, Hacker's Den is my non-internet connected lab AP. No dirty business here.

    Unhappy ****

    Thanks for the response

    This is brutal.. Why is this on the compatibility list, and why is it advertised as compatible with BT..

    Mine works just like yours.. It begins the process then starts spitting out that Max retransmists error... It's driving me nuts.. I don't know what to

    Can any experts in the house lend a hand?? What are we doing wrong? The product is even marketed as being compatible with BT

    Not sure about the actual problem but, we can't help if some one makes a claim about their product. Also being compatible with BT does not mean it will work with programs within BT.

    Being compatible with backtrack, in the wireless adapters case, only means that monitor mode and injection will work out-of-the-box with backtrack.

    IIRC, both easside and wesside are considered at POC stage and "unstable".
    The fact that these tools do not work for you have to relation to their driver "compatibility".

    More info here:
    wesside-ng [Aircrack-ng]

    @ muts: Yup, that's where I was last night. wesside-ng is in fact POC, and they even make the claim that "Easside-ng is considered relatively stable software". The only reason why I can see easside-ng being more stable is because it's been out longer.

    @ everyone else: + more info here: easside-ng [Aircrack-ng] and make sure you read:
    "Easside-ng compared to Wesside-ng" almost halfway down the page;
    "Usage Tips" around 3/4s down the page; and
    "Usage Troubleshooting" at the bottom of the page.

    Also, double-check to make sure that you can perform injection/fragmenting: injection_test [Aircrack-ng]
