    Monitor mode


    How do i get my wireless card to be in monitor mode. I tried using
    #iwconfig ath0 mode monitor
    but i get an error

    so i used
    #wlanconfig ath0 create wlandev wifi0 wlanmode monitor

    this makes root shell freeze for some reason. Does anyone know how I can get my atheros based wlan card in monitor mode using knoppix?

    never mind I fixed the problem. Instead of using ath0, I used ath1.
    #wlanconfig ath1 create wlandev wifi0 wlanmode monitor

    So did you get your atheros chipset working?
    How did you get around the segmentation fault?

    What distro? What card? How are you trying to install it?
