You may want to review the LQ rules at the link above; specifically the third to last one.

While your intent may be harmless, LQ members have no way of knowing what you plan to do with Aircrack, so it may be detrimental for LQ members to help you get that tool working.

Surely the documentation you have already listed can point you to someplace else where you can find the help you need.

Thanks,
Sasha

To obtain the chipset that you are using, use one of the following commands.

For PCI card
Code:
lspci
For USB card
Code:
lsusb
Also aircrack can be a little difficult to master but the guide is pretty straight forward. If you just want to learn about protocols then may I suggest tcpdump, nmap, even telnet can be used to give you a deeper understanding.

However as the first poster has said, we can't be of much help due to the fact that people can say they have good intentions or just want to learn about protocols but in the end they do illegal things.
