    Default Problems with ALFA Network AWUS036NH and BT4


    I've got a Alfa Networks AWUS036NH, which uses the RT3070 chipset. Backtrack4 Final shows it as an RT 2870 when I run lsusb.

    airmon-ng ra0 shows that it's an rt2500.

    I cannot get it working with Kismet or airedump-ng. I don't know if being detected as an rt2500 is the cause of the problem or not, but I don't have any idea where to start troubleshooting.

    I've got an AWUS036H on the way, in case I cannot get this new adapter to work.

    Any help would be appreciated.


    EDIT: It looks like it works with kismet if I set it to use the 2870 chipset. Unfortunately it's extremely slow and doesn't really work all that well.
