I'm trying to put my card in monitor mode, but I keep coming up against roadblocks. How does one leave a card on, but free it from obligations so I can change the mode? And explanation of my problem:
But when I try to change the mode on wlan0:Code:$ iwconfig lo no wireless extensions. eth0 no wireless extensions. wmaster0 no wireless extensions. wlan0 IEEE 802.11abg ESSID:"Sirizzotti" Mode:Managed Frequency:2.437 GHz Access Point: 00:1D:7E:34:81:3A Bit Rate=1 Mb/s Tx-Power=15 dBm Retry min limit:7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr=2352 B Power Management:off Link Quality=61/100 Signal level:-71 dBm Noise level=-93 dBm Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0 Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0 pan0 no wireless extensions.
So of course, I sudo:Code:$ iwconfig wlan0 mode monitor Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06) : SET failed on device wlan0 ; Operation not permitted.
Any help? (9.04 Jaunty Jackalope)Code:$ sudo iwconfig wlan0 mode monitor Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06) : SET failed on device wlan0 ; Device or resource busy.
