Hi Mohammad,

Thanks for replying.   But I am still having some trouble.

I did 'iwconfig' and got the wireless interface showing as 'wlan0'  I issue the commands

- sudo service network-manager stop
- sudo wlanconfig ath0 destroy

And for the following :

>sudo wlanconfig ath0 create wlandev wlan0 wlanmode monitor
wlanconfig: ioctl: Operation not supported

Please help me solve it.



First, make sure that the wireless tools is installed on your system (sudo apt-get install wireless-tools), then if you have the interface wlan0, you could try the following:

- sudo ifconfig wlan0 down
- sudo iwconfig wlan0 mode monitor
- sudo iwconfig wlan0 channel x
- sudo iwconfig wlan0 essid ......
- sudo ifconfig wlan0 up

If you have the interface ath, you could try the steps mentioned in my previous e-mail.

Hope this helps...
