    um yeah possibly your card doesn't inject? please post more info about your chipset, also do a search of other posts on here or google, with that chipset. Theres been many posts before with ppl trying to get info on their crappy broadcoms, and there have been responses.
    thank you

    this can be tested in aireplay-ng and with airmon-ng

    airmon-ng start wlan0 (or respective interface)

    --if this doesnt work then your card wont be able to pen test wifi as mon mode or pormisc mode will allow your network card to accecpt data from any network and not just data destined to your interface

    packet injections is essential to active attacking against 802.11 check packet injection you need to execute

    aireplay-ng -9 mon0

    there is also a list of compatible wifi chipsets on the aircrack-ng website

    if this doesnt give you the appropiate output then you card doesnt support packet injections
