Monitor mode option unavailable with my Orinoco gold wireless card
 
I am running BackTrack2 which has the orinoco driver ver 0.15 that claims to support monitor mode, but for some reason it doesn't. Has anyone else come across this, and have you found a fix? Thanks.

Do you get an error when you try to set the mode, or does it just not appear to do anything when in monitor mode?

After posting my original question I went back and reviewed errors I was getting when I ran kismet. I noticed this one, "eth1: Monitor mode support is buggy in this firmware, not enabling." It looks like it doesn't like firmware version 7.82 so I am going to downgrade it and see if that works. Thanks.
