I have two laptops both with the Intel Centrino Advanced-N + WiMAX 6250, and both are acting strange when typing in airmon-ng.
When I run airmon-ng, It just hangs, and I have to force close the app using ctrl c. I've tried debugging it using gdb and seeing where it hangs; It appears the computer doesn't think it has a network connection, yet I am clearly posting this from said computer now.

If I go into the wireless connection menu under the internet tab, I can connect to any unsecured ap but not any ap that has any sort of encryption (even having a legit passcode).

I'm using kernel 2.6.38 and iwlwifi-6050-ucode- I don't know what else to do in order to get this to work, as I can't seem to get the card to actively think it's installed, nor can I figure out how to set up the driver to accept any packet injection (for testing my own networks of course).

Any clue of a fix for this? A lot of newer computers are coming out with this card or a variant.
