    Ralink RT73 USB Wireless Drivers in Feisty Fawn (7.04)

    This guide uses p_larbigs's drivers instead of the serialmonkey drivers because p_larbigs's are based off of the serialmonkey drivers, but have been already patched for Fragmentation Attacks and Injection, so you can utilize more features in Aircrack.

    The wireless card I tested this on is an Alfa AWUS036S, the system I tested this on is a clean install of Ubuntu Feisty Fawn 7.04 with all updates as of 7/4/07.

    Remove the old drivers

    Code:
    cd /lib/modules/2.6.20-16-generic/kernel/ubuntu/wireless/
    sudo rm -r rt2x00
    sudo rm -r rt2x00-legacy/
    Get the new drivers and install them
    Download http://homepages.tu-darmstadt.de/~p_larbig/wlan/rt73-k2wrlz-1.1.0.tar.bz2 and extract it to your desktop.
    Code:
    cd Desktop/rt73-k2wrlz-1.1.0/Module/
    sudo make
    sudo strip -S rt73.ko
        (before 2.7MB after 242k)
    sudo make install
    Bring the device up
    Code:
    sudo ifconfig rausb0 up
    The RT73 drivers do not support the network manager, so you need to remove it and install RutilT, which I like better anyways.

    Download and install RutilT
    Download http://cbbk.free.fr/bonrom/?download=RutilTv0.15.tar.gz and extract it to your desktop.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libgtk2.0-dev g++
    cd Desktop/RutilTv0.15/
    ./configure.sh --launcher=external
    sudo make
    sudo make install

    Remove network-manager
    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove network-manager
    If you want rausb0 brought up when you start ubuntu

    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/network/interfaces
         auto rausb0
         iface rausb0 inet dhcp
    If you want RutilT to start with Ubuntu

    System>Preferences>Sessions>New>
    Name:rutilt, Command:rutilt

    If you don't want to see RutilT window every time Ubuntu starts up, inside RutilT check the box next to "Start hidden in tray".

    *Just a note, you click on tray icon to show/hide the RutilT window.

    Getting Kismet Configured
    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/kismet/kismet.conf
         #suiduser=(your user name)
         source=rt2500,rausb0,RT73
