Re: Backtrack 5 Alfa AWUS036NH

Try for the repeat is just kind of error on discussion for the o of airodump and here is the solution I used for Backtrack 4 r1 and Backtrack r2 and is working for Backtrack 5.

Open New Console
Code:
cd /usr/src/drivers
wget http://wireless.kernel.org/download/...-04-20.tar.bz2
tar jxvf compat-wireless-2010-04-20.tar.bz2
cd compat-wireless-2010-04-20
wget http://patches.aircrack-ng.org/mac80...radiotap.patch
cat mac80211_2.6.32.2-wl_frag+ack_radiotap.patch | patch -p1
make
make install
make unload
modprobe rt2800usb
When you done with all above commands restart your system. Try to test interfaces

Code:
Airmon-ng start wlan0
Interface Chipset Driver
wlan0 RaLink RT2870/3070 rt2800usb - [phy0]
(monitor mode enabled on mon0)
Verify if your wireless card is detected by airodrodump.
Code:
Airodump-ng mon0
Now test your wireless card let?s see if injection mode is working in your wireless card
Code:
aireplay-ng -9 mon0
airdump-ng -9 mon0
15:42:20 Trying broadcast probe requests...
15:42:21 Injection is working!

Re: Backtrack 5 Alfa AWUS036NH

Tell me which version of Backtrack 5 you?re using and I tested with Backtrack 5 GNOME-32 edition and it is working fine at my place.
Code:
cd /usr/src/
wget http://wireless.kernel.org/download/compat-wireless-2.6/compat-wireless-2010-04-20.tar.bz2
tar jxvf compat-wireless-2010-04-20.tar.bz2
cd compat-wireless-2010-04-20
wget http://patches.aircrack-ng.org/mac80211_2.6.32.2-wl_frag+ack_radiotap.patch
cat mac80211_2.6.32.2-wl_frag+ack_radiotap.patch | patch -p1
make
make install
make unload
modprobe rt2800usb

Re: Backtrack 5 Alfa AWUS036NH

I think something is wrong in this code
Code:
I think something is wrong in this code
airmon-ng start wlan0


Found 2 processes that could cause trouble.
If airodump-ng, aireplay-ng or airtun-ng stops working after
A short period of time, you may want to kill (some of) them!

PID	Name
709	dhclient3
14665	dhclient3
Process with PID 14665 (dhclient3) is running on interface wlan0


Interface	Chipset		Driver

wlan0		AR9001/9002/9271		usb (monitor mode enabled)

Re: Backtrack 5 Alfa AWUS036NH

Alfa awus036neh rt2870/3070 1000mw
I have been using this wireless card in Backtrack 4 r2 and it?s been large the signal is great but in Backtrack 5 signal is actually little .The more often than not setup still reaps no loot.
Code:
iw reg set BO
iwconfig wlan1 txpower 30
The power is now at 30 but the signal is not huge as compared what it used to be my pci edimax-7128g with a 5dbi antenna has additional signal and picking up more Access Points than the alfa wireless card and it has a 9dbi antenna .Now whats wrong with it. As far as I can memorize the Backtrack team patched it in Backtrack 4 r2 and it was the solution after Backtrack 4.

Re: Backtrack 5 Alfa AWUS036NH

In Backtrack 5 wireless alpha awsuso36nh card works so fine with the default drivers and you can increase the frequency to 30db, injection mode also works.
Code:
iw reg Sept. BO
iwconfig wlanx txpower 30
macchanger-m xx: xx: xx: xx: xx: xx wlanx
airmon-ng start wlanx
airodump-ng mon0
aireplay-ng -9 mon0

Re: Backtrack 5 Alfa AWUS036NH

I'm trying to assist out someone who has Alfa AWUS036NH and using Backtrack 5
Code:
 lsusb shows : Bus 002 Device 005: ID 148f:3070 Ralink Technology, Corp.
Interface       Chipset         Driver 

wlan0           AR9001/9002/9271                usb (monitor mode enabled)
But neither airodump-ng nor aireplay-ng see any network (no error shown, just no networks).Of the path one network is extremely near to me. I removed the dhclient3 client which was hanging on wireless lan3, after that also it doesn?t show me any network .But I Start Wicd I can see nearby network.

Re: Backtrack 5 Alfa AWUS036NH

I, also, can confirm comparable answer. I'm running VMware on a Macbook Pro running Operating System X 10.6.7 using the Alfa AWUS036NH wireless card. The Backtrack 5 version I am running 32 bit gnome and it is fully update, but I have also experienced the 64-bit gnome version with comparable results. For me, the card is forever recognized when inserted (i.e. wlan0 present), it's now packet injection that doesn't work every time. So I have to unplug it from the USB port, stay about 6-8 seconds, plug it back in, and re-test the injection (I test it using the aireplay-ng -9 mon0 command.) Once it works it stays working until it's actually disconnected or I restart Backtrack.
Hope this information is helpful.

Re: Backtrack 5 Alfa AWUS036NH

It works for me on win 7 and xp and vista. I verified and tested with all windows operating system. While using backtrack 5 gone try following commands.
Code:
apt-get install plist 
once you?re at the shell type 

rfkill unblock all
Then try searching the wireless networks .Also make the usb is connected to the virtual machine while you are searching for the wireless network.
