    Default Backtrack Ralink R2800PCI Issue

    HI Guys I recently installed bactrack and when I was doing an airodump-ng to scan networks nothing comes up, in my phone there is like 5 APs, there has to be something wrong with the driver or somwthing, how can I install it

    I type

    airmon-ng start wlan0

    Found 4 processes that could cause trouble.
    If airodump-ng, aireplay-ng or airtun-ng stops working after
    a short period of time, you may want to kill (some of) them!

    PID Name
    662 NetworkManager
    837 wpa_supplicant
    1266 dhclient3
    1645 dhclient3
    Process with PID 1645 (dhclient3) is running on interface wlan0
    Process with PID 2003 (airodump-ng) is running on interface mon0
    Process with PID 2011 (airodump-ng) is running on interface mon0

    Interface Chipset Driver

    wlan0 Unknown rt2800pci - [phy0]
    (monitor mode enabled on mon1)
    mon0 Unknown rt2800pci - [phy0]


    airodump-ng mon0

    Did you look into the rfkill command? Also ifconfig (interface) up command? Also the dmesg|tail -20 command?

    Let me know what you people get.

    According to linux Drivers page, this is fully supported (Minitor mode, cfg82011, AP mode, etc): refer here and look for your chipset:

    Post output of: ifconfig -a and iwconfig

    Also output of: lspci | grep -i network (see the beggining of line a number, it is the PCI ID: xx:xx.x)
    Then post the output of: lspci --vvs xx:x.x (at the end is the driver used by kernel...
