    Wireless - monitoring mode


    Hi all folks!
    Dose any one know how to turn a wireless card for laptop into monitoring mode in linux? i have stfw but cant find how to do it in linux. Maybe it cant be done with this driver acx100. I use D-link 650+ and rh9, yes i know that d-links sucks, but i have learn my lesson and im nerver going to by more d-link products. Both my card and my AP sucks... big time. I try to use airsnort and it complains that i have to turn the card in monitor mode, dont know how to dot this in linux.

    cheers!

    Code:
    # iwconfig wlan0 mode monitor
    if no error then a wireless chipset should support monitor mode or I'm completely wrong ?
