alfa awus036h can not change channel in monitor mode

I got a problem with my alfa awuso card. It seems that it is somehow unable to change the channel to channel 5 (at least when it is in monitor mode).
If i try:
# airodump-ng mon0 -c5
I am just getting access points on channel 1 and on the left side is written:
fixed channel mon0: -1

My /usr/src/linux/.config:

Module                  Size  Used by
rtl8187                52977  0
eeprom_93cx6            2571  1 rtl8187
vboxdrv               332306  1
x86_pkg_temp_thermal     4647  0
iwldvm                125164  0
iwlwifi               102518  1 iwldvm
uname -r
I tryed airodump-ng on ubuntu and it did work crorrectly.

Can someone help me?
PS: i tryed to put my /usr/src/linux/.config in code tags but than my posting became to long i hope it is ok like that
