MRGRIM Posted January 12, 2007 Share Posted January 12, 2007 Hello I've bought a Netgear MA111 for the purpose of cracking wep keys as I though it looked intrested. I am a complete Linux novice (having only ever set a SAMBA server up) so I've downloaded the Auditor and am booting off the CD. I've been playing round with Kismet etc following some instructions I've found online however I belive I need to set my wireless adapter into monitor mode I belive I can do this by running 'iwconfig wlan0 mode monitor; when I do this I get the following error message 'Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06) : SET failed on device wlan0 ; Operation not supported.' Being a novice I don't know how to resolve the issue or where to possibly start, I've had a look at some google groups but its awfully scare as they keep telling people to recompile things :shock: does anyone have any suggestions?
