View Full Version : [ubuntu] RT73 chipset and monitor mode

January 20th, 2009, 09:33 AM
Hi I'm using Ubuntu 8.04 with a Hawking usb card it works just fine but won't let me set it into monitor mode

sudo iwconfig wlan1 mode monitor

I've tried taking the card down and then running the command, that doesn't work.

iwconfig tells me that it is in mode monitor, but the card stops working. Can't ping anything or access anything on the network.

Any thoughts? I sure would appreciate it.
