    Default WNDA3100 Issues

    Okay So i just bought a WNDA3100 and it couldn't scan w the otus drivers that came w bt4f.

    So I followed the ubuntu posts on how to get it to work. Copy the .sys files and .inf files and use Ndiswrapper to install it.
    root@bt:~# ndiswrapper -l
    arusb_xp : driver installed
            device (0846:9010) present (alternate driver: arusb_lnx)
    The latest drivers. 1.7 for this device does not work. If you go back to one version. It works w ndiswrapper... but i just found out that ndiswrapper doesn't support monitor mode.... gonna check on the otus driver now..

    Okay so the default Otus Driver that comes w bt4f,i got 1 successful scan from iwlist ath0 scanning. Now it doesn't scan at all.
    root@bt:~# iwconfig ath0
    ath0      IEEE 802.11-MIMO  ESSID:""
              Mode:Ad-Hoc  Frequency:2.457 GHz  Cell: 92:13:33:FC:E1:7F
              Bit Rate:54 Mb/s   Tx-Power=-2147483648 dBm   Sensitivity=0/3
              Retry   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
              Encryption key:off
              Power Management:off
    Is there something im missing^^?

    And after i got the first scan i opened airodump, but get these messages:
    root@bt:~# airodump-ng ath0
    ARP linktype is set to 1 (Ethernet) - expected ARPHRD_IEEE80211,
    ARPHRD_IEEE80211_FULL or ARPHRD_IEEE80211_PRISM instead.  Make
    sure RFMON is enabled: run 'airmon-ng start ath0 <#>'
    Sysfs injection support was not found either.
    Anyone out there?

    Your first problem is that you're using an unsupported card. aircrack-ng doesn't (yet, AFAIK) support wireless-N cards. IIRC I the aircrack-ng suite *may* support *some* draft-N, but don't hold me to that one.

    Your second problem is that you're using Ndiswrapper, which is clearly noted in the compatibility list at the aircrack-ng wiki unsupported.

    Your third problem is that you haven't even tried to put the card in monitor mode, according to this post.

    Fourth and finally, it seems that you failed epically to even bother doing a search on compatibility before posting here, worse yet, you spent money on something without researching it properly first.

    ...I like it when people help me...

    Have a look at compatible_cards [Aircrack-ng] - it's best to take a good look at the official list of supported wireless cards before committing on a purchase.

    When I was looking for a wireless usb card with support for a N/RP/SMA connector (external antenna support), I went hunting for opinions in all the wireless forums to find out what the most popular model was - I took the advice of the masses at the time and was able to pick up a bargain Edimax EW-7318USg for about $30, so you don't have to spend crazy amounts on a decent wireless card.
