View Full Version : Problem wlan0 rtl819xSE monitor mode

12-21-2010, 07:37 PM

I have a problem using airmon-ng. I installed my wireless driver (Realtek RTL9191 SEvA wireless card):

Module Size Used by
r8192se_pci 472209 0

I put the wireless card in monitor mode:

root@bt:~# iwconfig wlan0 mode monitor
root@bt:~# iwconfig wlan0
wlan0 802.11bg Nickname:"rtl8191SEVA2"
Mode:Monitor Bit Rate=1 Mb/s
Retry:on RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off
Power Management:off
Link Quality=10/100 Signal level=0 dBm Noise level=-100 dBm
Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0

Also pretty strange "Bit Rate=1 Mb/s".

But when I try to run airmon-ng start wlan0 I get:

Interface Chipset Driver

wlan0 rtl819xSE - [phy1]/usr/sbin/airmon-ng: line 316: /sys/class/ieee80211/phy1/add_iface: No such file or directory
mon0: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device

(monitor mode enabled on mon0)

Or just:

[phy1]mon0: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device

I searched on Google, and I found another driver, with patch, but it didn't work, same problem.
Also some answers were to install the last version of aircrack suite, but I already have it.

So, what can I do?
