    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

    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 and extract it to your desktop.
    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
    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 and extract it to your desktop.
    sudo apt-get install libgtk2.0-dev g++
    cd Desktop/RutilTv0.15/
    ./ --launcher=external
    sudo make
    sudo make install

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

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

    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
    sudo gedit /etc/kismet/kismet.conf
         #suiduser=(your user name)
