View Full Version : [ubuntu] AWUS036NH master mode?

January 1st, 2012, 08:09 AM
I need some help with drivers and iwconfig mode master. I have a AWUS036NH i am almost certain it is capable of mode master and i know it is capable of a high transmit power i just want to set it up to do so and if possible make the adapter into an access point for other users, everytime i run iwconfig wlan1 mode master i get a
Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06) :
SET failed on device wlan1 ; Invalid argument.
can anyone help me move this along or know where i can go to find more information on this.. i have the downloaded drivers from alfa's website i think i installed them but am not sure. any help would be useful.

scroll down to the ubuntu commands where it says "sudo getit......"
Did you type all of those commands in the terminal?
