    Compat-Wireless Aircrack Channel locked on -1

    Hello All!

    Whenever I try to use aireplay I get the error message that

    Code:
    mon0 is on channel -1, but the AP uses channel 6
    (ap channel changes depending on ap)

    I made sure to set my channel by using airmon
    Code:
    airmon-ng start wlan0 6
    I found this thread that says I need to patch Compat-Wirless with a certain patch

    http://forum.aircrack-ng.org/index.php?topic=8646.0

    However I can't figure out how to actually apply the patch.

    I did a search for compat-wireless files and found three different folders.

    compat-wireless-2.6.34
    compat-wireless-2.6.34-staging
    linux-backports-modules-compat-wireless-2.6.34-2.6.32-25-generic

    If anyone can tell me how to apply the patch that would be awesome.
