    4965agn aircrack patch

    I began using Ubuntu when 7.04 came out. I never really was able to get used to it, but I have tried to come back to it. One thing I would like to be able to do is successfully hack a wireless network. Unfortunately, I have this cursed Intel 4965agn adapter. I tried to follow these patch directions.

    wget hxxp://
    wget hxxp://
    Deal with the firmware
    tar zxvf iwlwifi-4965-ucode-
    cd iwlwifi-4965-ucode-
    cp iwlwifi-4965-ucode-* /lib/firmware/
    Deal with the driver
    tar xjvf compat-wireless-2.6.tar.bz2
    cd compat-wireless*
    Get the necessary patch and patch away (there is another but was not needed)
    wget mac hxxp://
    patch -p1 < mac80211_2.6.28-rc4-wl_frag+ack_v3.patch
    build the modules
    make install
    make unload
    echo "options iwlagn swcrypto=1" >> /etc/modprobe.d/options
    make load
    I keep getting an error when I have to run the patch -p1 command. I am sure it's something simple, but I can't figure it out. I don't even know if these patch directions are up to date.

    I have searched the web for information, and I tried to use the Backtrack 4 disc, but to be honest, I hate the look, feel, and layout of that OS. I much prefer Ubuntu 9.04.

    If it matters, I installed Ubuntu using Wubi.

    Thanks in advance.
