    Default airodump-ng error

    Im not shure if this is a bug or not but every time i try to use the airodump-ng command i get this error.
    root@bt:~# airodump-ng wlan0
    ioctl(SIOCSIWMODE) failed: Device or resource busy

    ARP linktype is set to 1 (Ethernet) - expected ARPHRD_IEEE80211,
    ARPHRD_IEEE80211_FULL or ARPHRD_IEEE80211_PRISM instead. Make
    sure RFMON is enabled: run 'airmon-ng start wlan0 <#>'
    Sysfs injection support was not found either.

    At the minimum it is not a back track bug nor fix.
    But it looks like you need to look into the basic commands and the how they work thread, over at aircrack-ng
    To be successful here you should read all of the following.
    If you are new to Back|Track
    Back|Track Wiki
    Failure to do so will probably get your threads deleted or worse.
