    Question A small problem

    I have a question about my hawking hwug1 usb adapter.

    Ok I got it to work just fine in my outdated dell dimension using backtrack 3. But in order for it to work I have to take it out and put it back in after changing the mac address. I read about doing that here. But when I try the same thing with my lenovo g550 laptop the mac address reverts to the default. It doesn't do that with the dell. And I can seem to get injection working on the laptop.

    Injection works fine with the dell though.

    Here's basically what I have been doing. And like i said works perfect with my desktop computer but will not work with my laptop.

    Any ideas?

    0)$sudo modprobe rt2570
    1)airmon-ng stop wlan0
    2)ifconfig wlan0 down
    3)macchanger --mac 00:11:22:33:44:55 wlan0
    4)airmon-ng start wlan0
    5)airodump-ng wlan0
    6)airodump-ng -c (channel) -w (file name) --bssid (bssid) wlan0
    7)aireplay-ng -1 0 -a (bssid) -h 00:11:22:33:44:55 wlan0
    8)aireplay-ng -3 -b (bssid) -h 00:11:22:33:44:55 wlan0

    This is my first post so be easy on me. :-P

    I am here to learn.

    this can't be bt3, its either bt4 or you deliberately aliased the interface to be wlan0 instead of rausb0.

    As far as I know bt3 did not have mac80211 stack because of the kernel that was provided was well before mac80211 came out.

    I'm presuming you've made a typing mistake on labelling it as bt3 when its bt4. Also was the lenovo using the same disc as the dell? and the desktop?

    Oh i apologize...

    It is Backtrack 3 and I am using the same disk for both computers.

    and here is a little more accurate of what I type for injection. I forgot to edit out my interface from the what I had in a text file.

    0)$sudo modprobe rt2570
    1)airmon-ng stop rausb0
    2)ifconfig rausb0 down
    3)macchanger --mac 00:11:22:33:44:55 rausb0
    4)airmon-ng start rausb0
    5)airodump-ng rausb0
    6)airodump-ng -c (channel) -w (file name) --bssid (bssid) rausb0
    7)aireplay-ng -1 0 -a (bssid) -h 00:11:22:33:44:55 rausb0
    8)aireplay-ng -3 -b (bssid) -h 00:11:22:33:44:55 rausb0

    So yes the same disk...On both computers I have to use the Vesa KDE. Same commands.

    Any more thoughts?
