    Default Question about the kernel configuration.

    I have been having problems getting my Intel 4965 xxx WiFi card to go into monitor mode. I think I may have found a work around but the instructions say I need a kernel configured with these options:

    You need to make sure that your kernel configuration includes these options. Pay attention which are to be build as modules and which can be built-in.

    Networking -> Wireless :
    [M] Improved wireless configuration API[*] nl80211 new netlink interface support[*] Wireless extensions
    [M] Generic IEEE 802.11 Networking Stack (mac80211)

    If they exist, these should be either unchecked or modularized:

    [M] Generic IEEE 802.11 Networking Stack (DEPRECATED)
    [M] IEEE 802.11 WEP encryption (802.1x)
    [M] IEEE 802.11i CCMP support
    [M] IEEE 802.11i TKIP encryption
    [M] Software MAC add-on to the IEEE 802.11 networking stack

    Basically I need to know if BT5 is set up for this already.

    Go check it out for yourself.

    As a hint the current config is /boot/config-2.6.38
