    I assume you are using NDISwrapper for your card, this was taken from the NDISwrapper website FAQ.

    Q.Is master mode or promiscuous mode supported?

    A. No! NDIS doesn’t support Master/Repeater/Monitor modes. The only modes supported are Ad-Hoc and Managed. Note that some drivers may support features that are not in NDIS e.g., showing signal noise and possibly Master mode, but they are proprietary and no documentation available for them, so such features won’t be supported by ndiswrapper.

    i'm actually not using ndis wrapper. When I installed feisty it loaded it's own driver with it that's been working fine (with the exception of not supporting monitor mode).
