Re: Alfa AWUS036NH not working with BT5

Before injection test just try to be far away from you access point to inject. Move closer to it and try again and you will get the below results while patching:

Code:
cat mac80211_2.6.32.2-wl_frag+ack_radiotap.patch | patch -p1
patching file include/net/ieee80211_radiotap.h
Hunk #1 FAILED at 240.
1 out of 1 hunk SUCCESS-- saving rejects to file include/net/ieee80211_radiotap.h.rej
patching file net/mac80211/tx.c
Hunk #1 SUCCESS at 678.
Hunk #2 SUCCESS at 974.
Hunk #3 SUCCESS at 1025.
Hunk #4 SUCCESS at 1088.
4 out of 4 hunks SUCCESS -- saving rejects to file net/mac80211/tx.c.rej
You will get mon0 enabled.

Re: Alfa AWUS036NH not working with BT5

I have tried it in my Linux operating system, got the below result successfully. I have tested BT5 GNOME-32 and its working fine. I have used the above recommended steps. You can take reference from it.

Code:
PHP 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: Alfa AWUS036NH not working with BT5

I agree with the above steps. It will work smoothly with no errors. But you will come to a point where you will get the below complained from the system. I think it?s a chipset driver which is troubleshooting.


root@bt:~# airmon-ng start wlan0
  • Interface Chipset Driver
  • wlan0 Ralink RT2870/3070 rt2800usb - [phy0]
  • (monitor mode enabled on mon0)
  • root@bt:~# aireplay-ng -9 mon0
  • 23:29:45 Trying broadcast probe requests...
  • 23:29:47 No Answer...
  • 23:29:47 Found 0 APs
  • root@bt:~#

I recommend you to use it in BT4R2 and believe me you will have no problem getting this to work.

Re: Alfa AWUS036NH not working with BT5

Just do as I say and your Alfa AWUS036NH will start working with BT5.

First open a new Console :
  • cd /usr/src/drivers
  • wget //wireless.kernel.org/download/...-04-20.tar.bz2
  • tar jxvf compat-wireless-2010-04-20.tar.bz2
  • cd compat-wireless-2010-04-20
  • wget //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 all done reboot

Your second step will be more important i.e. you have to test the interface:
  • airmon-ng start wlan0
  • Interface Chipset Driver
  • wlan0 RaLink RT2870/3070 rt2800usb - [phy0]
  • (monitor mode enabled on mon0)

Third step is that check whether it detects your Alfa AWUS036NH driver or not:
  • airodump-ng mon0
  • Atlast Test the injection:
  • aireplay-ng -9 mon0
  • airdump-ng -9 mon0
  • 14:42:20 Trying broadcast probe requests...
  • 14:42:21 Injection is working!
  • 14:45:22 Found 1 AP

Re: Alfa AWUS036NH not working with BT5

There are many issues related to it. I would like to make you all aware that it is all because of BT5 i.e. the Backtrack 5. There seems to be some official issues. I too am waiting for the official people to provide necessary solutions. No matter what so ever you try your Alfa AWUS036NH won?t work. The only thing we can do is wait for them to take some necessary actions or use BT4 instead of BT5.
