Monitor Mode on wlan0
My problem is on a DELL Inspiron 2200. I am not sure how to identify what wireless chipset is. I am trying to get the wireless card to get into monitoring mode, so that I can play with aircrack-ng on my home network.
I would also be interested in other peoples opinions of this application.

I am a linux newbie, so I appologize if I haven't provided you with all the needed information.
