Atheros AR5007 802.11b/g,, wont work on linux
 
hello, i have been trying to work this out for about 2 weeks now,, i have read nearly every post. I have tryed downloading all these new things to try make it work. alot ofpost were telling me to get madwifi but that doesnt work with Atheros AR5007 802.11b/g. So if some-one would liek to help me, that would be nice!!

thanks :)

I have the same exact card :)

We will need to know the problem first, before we can start fixing it :)

What Linux distribution are you using?

What is wrong with it? Elaborate on this as much as possible.

That will give us a good start.

kdogg69er 01-17-2010 05:00 PM

i am using backtrack 4, i can use the internet, the only thing that i wont that isnt working is when i type airmon-ng under interface, chipset and driver there isnt anthing!

lupusarcanus 01-17-2010 07:05 PM

Don't use airmon-ng. that never works for me.
Instead, do it "The Linux Way"
  1. Disconnect from your netwoek using whatever GUI you use.
  2. Type "ifconfig wlan0 down"
  3. Type "iwconfig wlan0 mode monitor
  4. Type "ifconfig wlan0 up"

You are now in monitor mode. happy hacking!

kdogg69er 01-17-2010 07:18 PM

i hav tryed that,, but everytime i write these line it comes up with

root@bt:~# ifconfig wlan0 down
wlan0: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device
root@bt:~# iwconfig wlan0 mode monitor
Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06) :
SET failed on device wlan0 ; No such device.
root@bt:~# ifconfig wlan0 up
wlan0: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device

Hmmm....
Type in "lspci" and post the output here.
Type in "ifconfig -a" and post the output here. (Block out your IP address)

is that right?

lupusarcanus 01-17-2010 07:31 PM

Funny question. But when you posted that, were you using your Ethernet or Wireless?

kdogg69er 01-17-2010 07:33 PM

i am using wireless, i use a laptop

Well, the device with the most activity is eth0. So do the above commands with that
If that is your Ethernet, try eth1.

kdogg69er 01-17-2010 07:49 PM

i have tryed but i dont think i am putting in the right commands, can u please tell me wat to put in?

lupusarcanus 01-17-2010 08:00 PM

VMware + BT4 does not support Atheros cards.
http://forums.remote-exploit.org/new...g-problem.html

Try BT4 as a Linux Live DVD/USB or install it to your hard drive. It should work. If it doesn't, BT4 has a how-to to get it working:
http://forums.remote-exploit.org/bac...-work-bt4.html

You can also try VirtualBox, which is much better than VMware, although the Live CD DVD/USB or install to HDD is recommended first.

kdogg69er 01-18-2010 12:06 AM

ok i am using viraulbox with BT4, can u tell me how to get my driver working thanks :)

thanks

lupusarcanus 01-18-2010 01:06 AM

That's IF it will work....

Post the output of "lspci" again.

kdogg69er 01-18-2010 02:05 AM
