[all variants] Trouble with Wireless Monitor Mode

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I am attempting to put my wireless card into monitor mode on a specific channel via the airmon-ng tool. While my card does indeed go into monitor mode just fine, I cannot choose which channel to launch the mon0 interface on. Some other user had this issue and found a fix be applying a couple of patches per this bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...ng/+bug/643788 The fix is as follows: -------------------------------------- wget http://wireless.kernel.org/download/...-10-16.tar.bz2 tar -jxf compat-wireless-2010-10-16.tar.bz2 cd compat-wireless-2010-10-16 wget http://patches.aircrack-ng (HowTos)
