    Default wusb54gc wont inject

    Using backtrack 3 in vmware
    have enabled usb in removable devices

    can see device in iwconfig

    it is in monitor mode

    have installed patch as described here:
    Open up a shell and type:
    wget hxxp://
    tar -xjf rt73-k2wrlz-3.0.2.tar.bz2
    cd rt73-k2wrlz-3.0.2/Module
    then, as root, type
    make install
    modprobe rt73
    and these commands as directed:
    Using driver with aircrack-ng
    as root:
    iwconfig rausb0 mode monitor
    airodump-ng rausb0 ...
    if you want to use aireplay-ng:
    iwpriv rausb0 rfmontx 1
    aireplay-ng rausb0 ...
    The newer versions of the driver should properly setup the attributes, so simply:
     ifconfig rausb0 up
     airmon-ng start rausb0
     ... use the aircrack-ng suite tools you want
    However the second set of commands ( minus the ...) gave me this

    bt ~ # aireplay-ng rausb0
    Please specify an attack mode.
    "aireplay-ng --help" for help.
    Finally when attempting the injection test using

    bt ~ # aireplay-ng -9 rausb0
    18:29:14  Trying broadcast probe requests...
    18:29:16  No Answer...
    18:29:16  Found 0 APs
    As you can see the test has failed. Strange because airodump is seeing several AP's now including mine.

    I also tried it using the ap mac.
    That test gives me this:

    bt ~ #  aireplay-ng --test -e ACTIONTEC -a 00:15:00:05:c8:a9 rausb0
    18:53:47  Waiting for beacon frame (BSSID: 00:15:00:05:C8:A9) on channel 12
    18:53:57  No such BSSID available.

    One thing I have noticed is that when running aireplay it looks at a different channel every time ( ap is on 9 ) and airodump is switching channels all over.

    Thats about all the info I have. I know this chipset r73 is a good one and it should work.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    1) Why are you compiling and installing a patched driver when its already provided with backtrack releases?

    2) With ralink chipsets I believe the device needs to be up in order for anyone to proceed, this includes changing the mode of the driver to rfmon mode.

    在這兩者之間 BackTrack是4 FwdTrack4


    Learn 802.11 basics first before trying any penetration attempt on AP as by using your command I can see that you are in very hurry to crack the is the deal for you
