    You know, this looks an awful lot like you want to crack a password for a neighbour's router.

    Did you get the idea because of his nick or is it airmon-ng?

    Ok the first thing you need to do is go to terminal and "lspci" to make sure the system sees the device.
    The next thing is do a "lsmod" to see if the module is loaded.

    post both back here for us to look at.

    this is the driver you need. r8168-8.010.00.tar.bz2

    The nick, the fact that it is his first post and the he/she doesn't know how to search. Perhaps I was mistaken, the backtrack forums get a lot of first posts from "Pentesters" who are unfamiliar with Google.

    A statistic I just invented is that 97% of people downloading aircrack-ng are trying for free wifi.

    I was commenting on the appearance of the original post, I'm not the only person who would suspect such a thing.
