Hi,

I have a RT2500 based PCI Wireless card. I followed exactly the steps in this page http//aircrack-ng.org/doku.php?id=rt2500

All the installation is OK, except that the interface name is not ra0 but wlan0. When I enter this command [code2qije6gg]iwpriv <interface name> rfmontx 1[/code2qije6gg]It says Invalid command rfmontx.


How can I get all this working ? iwpriv only return this [code2qije6gg]lo no private ioctls.

eth0 no private ioctls.

wmaster0 no private ioctls.

wlan0 Available private ioctls :
param (8BE0) : set 2 int & get 0
get_param (8BE1) : set 1 int & get 1 int[/code2qije6gg]

Thanks,

Sam

PS I'm a Linux beginner, I installed it yesterday !

Well for starters
You said you want to put the interface in monitor mode, the topic I pointed you to describes why your command is not correct because that is _not_ the command to put the interface in monitor mode. It also points you to the correct command.

So it will work with "iwconfig wlan0 mode monitor" ? Cause when I type "airmon" it says "unknown chpset" and "unknown channel"

You are still not clear on what you are actually trying to achieve, and secondly please _read_ the aircrack article you refered to completely. It contains some information which is extremely useful in your situation. (hint last paragraph).
