You Hangdog42, have a bad problem, it is highlighted in red in the quote above, the problem is that you think rather than know.

I won't get into the details of why I need to crack wep from half a block away as mentioned before. But I will show you a real life situation involving people whom use wep cracking on a regular basis, actual names are not disclosed here, rather I use fictitious names.

Bill is an overseas worker whom lives with his mother, whom is quite computer illiterate, he pays for the internet and they have a wireless network. Because she only plays a few on-line games and does a little e-mail, their bandwidth is barely used. In the same large apartment building lives a friend of Bill's that Bill allows to use the network.
Bill is somewhat secure in his own way such that every time he comes home he changes the 128bit encryption key randomly because they are not living in paradise where everybody is honest. And because he is a little secure in his own way, he won't e-mail the new key to his friend when his friend is working abroad for long periods of time like him and they don't see each other when they are home all the time, nor will he write it on paper.
This eventually caused his friend headaches as the nature of Bill's profession is such that he is not readily reachable through any modern technology, and the mother does not want anything to do with Bill's friend. To make a long story a little shorter, with Bill's approval, his friend retrieves the key through wep cracking when he can't log in with the last key. No need to bother anyone. They are all happy.


If you would have taken the advice given and speculated in more than one direction, you would'nt look like the idiot you appear to be.

Now, the original poster is having the same problem I'm having, and I'd rather focus on the issue we are having than to focus on some idiot's accusations without proof. I am working on it, what are you doing about the original question? And when I get the time to play with it some more and manage to compile the ieee80211 subsystem with the 2.6.24 kernel, I'll post my results. And hopefully vice versa for anybody else in this predicament. For now, I still have everything working correctly with the 2.6.22 kernel and not in a hurry. Because if their are two of use in this thread, the laws of probability would dictate that there are many others in the same predicament looking for an answer.
And I'm sure many of the subscribers to this thread are a little fed up with your overflowing testosterone levels.

I just got an idea.

The reason I need the ieee80211 subsystem is because the ipw2200 source that I'm using is not looking for the mac80211. And I kind of want to keep using that particular source version because the patch enabling packet injection that I have is version specific.
Either edit the necessary files in the ipw2200 source to look for and use the mac80211. Or start playing with the other options I've found, probably in that aircrack-ng forum thread I posted earlier. To bad I don't know where to start to edit the source code, but shit like that usually don't hold me back for long if some 'kind' programmer doesn't step up to the plate.

I wonder what Hangdog42 does with aircrack-ng???
Seems to have a one track mind towards it's usefulness.

Au contraire, I don't think I don't believe you, I know I don't believe you.

Actually, my behavior has been entirely professional throughout this entire episode. It is you who introduced extraneous material in an attempt to inflate your ego and I simply called you on it. The refusal to excuse bad behavior is one of the features that sets the majority of LQ posters apart from the normal great unwashed out on the Internet. You however, are abusing someone else's system, and it is you who should apologize for your behavior. When you manage to realize that using tools like packet injectors is simply another form of attacking a network, feel free to offer your apologies.

Your little story/fantasy about why you need to crack a WEP key is so ridiculous it isn't even funny. The number of solutions to that particular fantasy that DON'T involve cracking are too numerous to mention. Including dropping a few bucks on a WPA router so WEP isn't even an issue. Again, you're inventing some fantasy to justify your unethical behavior.

No, the OP isn't having the same problem as you. The OP was merely trying to get ipw2200 working and was following some ancient, and now incorrect, instructions on the Intel website. The OP has absolutely no need to use a different ieee80211 subsystem than the one already provided in the kernel.

Considering that no one has objected, I would point out that the evidence suggests you are wrong. As usual.

I actually don't even have it installed because I have no use for it. Gaining unauthorized access to a network is unethical at best and illegal at worst, and simply breaking WEP keys for the fun of it is a waste of time in my opinion. I've got better things to do. In general, aircrack is one of the most useless pieces of software out there. There are probably a few security professionals who might be able to make use of it, but for the overwhelming number of people out there, you included, it doesn't provide any useful function.

This thread is starting to move away from the original issue posted. Please keep the extra legal and ethical discussions for more appropriate threads.

This is Debug configuration problem, you can change ieee80211 Makefile like;
CONFIG_IEEE80211_DEBUG=n


Second problem you will encounter is an error related to the changed structure member (page) in scatterlist.h.

hive:/home/morph/codes_opensource/ipw2200/ieee80211-1.2.18# make
Checking in /lib/modules/2.6.26 for ieee80211 components...

make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.6.26'

You can use a patch (google tuttleresearch.com/80211patch) to solve this problem
ieee80211-1.2.18# patch -p1 < patch-ieee80211-1.2.18-mt

After that everything should work fine I guess...
