    hi all, the error when I try to execute:
    # weplab -i eth2 -c file.cap --bssid xx:xx:xx:xx:xx

    is:
    weplab - Wep Key Cracker Wep Key Cracker (v0.1.5).

    ERROR: datalink type is not DLT_IEEE802.11 or PRISM_HEADER. Maybe you need to configure monitor mode in your wireless card

    lspci:
    02:0a.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3B Mini PCI Adapter (rev 04)

    uname -a:
    Linux satellitux 2.6.18-4-686 #1 SMP Mon Mar 26 17:17:36 UTC 2007 i686 GNU/Linux

    I use debian Testing and the version of weblab is "0.1.5"; before launch the weplab -i .. I configure my card in monitor mode with:
    # iwconfig eth2 mode Monitor
    and the channel with:
    # iwconfig eth2 channel 11

    I think that work correctly my card because with "airodump eth2" all going right

    any ideas?

    thanks,
    tommy
