First of all I say sorry for my bad english. I hav learned english at school and so I can't speak or write very well.

Since 2/3 weeks i read a lot about Wlan hacking. Now its my turn. First I like to hack my own WEP-Network for practise.

I read a (german) tuturial:

A Part of it:
Zuerst müssen wir den "Monitor Modus" Deiner WLAN Karte aktivieren. Wenn Deine Karte ein Modell der Intel® PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Chipset Reihe ist starte bitte mit folgenden Befehlen:

modprobe -r iwl3945
modprobe ipwraw

First of all me aktivate the "monitor mode" of our Wlan. If our Wlan-Card is a modell with the Intel® PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Chipset type in thes commands:
modprobe -r iwl3945
modprobe ipwraw

My final question is:
I have a Lptop with a Atheros AR928X Wireless Adapter. What are the commands for my Wlan-Card to switch the Card into the "monitor mode"?

I hope you aren't too strikt to me because of my english but it was hard work to write this text
