killuminati Posted March 22, 2012 Share Posted March 22, 2012 Hey guys! Been doing some trolling on the internet and im a little bit confused as to how to go about things. I have my new mark IV and went a bit crazy and bought a alfa AP 51 thinking that I could piggy back it and it could act as my second router to inject packets, airdrop-ng etc... Now I cant seem to get it placed into monitor mode in backtrack because it doesn't recognise it as its not a usb. So got a couple of questions before making future mods. 1) Do I flash my AP51 with the mark 3 - 2.1.2 firmware making it "better". 2) What are the benefits of piggy backing it to a mark IV? 3) If the Mark IV supports injection in the "pineapple interface" why doesnt it show up the same in backtrack (I.e I do not see mon0.wlan). Do I need to set it in monitor mode in another way or do I need to install the driver/firmware (madwifi?). Any help would be appreciated! Starting to think maybe I should have bought another alfa which is USB based. I could always flash the AP51, sell it on and buy the alfa usb type. Looking forward to hearing some interesting options here! =D Cheers guys. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
