MA401 Monitor mode not working
I recently installed Slackware 9.1 on my laptop. The only problem I am having is with my MA401 wireless card. I initially tried to put it in monitor mode with the original orinoco_cs driver, but it wasn't supported.
I patched the driver and now under the iwpriv section it has this ioctls value:
monitor (8BE8) : set 2 int & get 0
I then try and issue a iwconfig eth1 mode monitor and I get:
Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06) :
SET failed on device eth1 : Invalid argument.
I know the card works because if I specifically make my SSID mywireless and then do a dhcpcd eth1 it will connect to my AP.
One last bit of information that might help, if I plug the card in and boot it works just fine, but if I plug it in after boot, while it is recongized it does not get an ip unless I set the SSID and then do dhcpcd eth1.
I'm kind of lost as to what to do now, I've googled and scanned these forums for sometime, only one other person had my problem, but no one responded to him. Any help would be appreciated greatly. Thanks.
