    Re: madwifi on Fedora 13

    Hi guys,
    I am new to this topic and specially Madwifi.
    I want to install the madwifi driver for my atheros 5001X on Fedora 13.
    I was hoping that I can do that via yum but it doesnt work.
    Would you please tell me how to do that in simple words?! I try to use the madwifi wiki but it made me even more confuse.
    Thank you in advance guys,
    A.G

    Who needs words when there is CLI

    Code:
    su
    yum install gcc make kernel-devel kernel-headers
    reboot
    Code:
    svn checkout http://madwifi-project.org/svn/madwifi/trunk madwifi
    cd madwifi
    make
    su
    make install
    echo "blacklist ath5k" > /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-ath5k.conf
    reboot

    Thanks a lot. you are awesome!
    I ran all the commands and it worked perfect.
    I wanted to ask another question. I went through all these stuff in order to put my wlan card into monitor mode and be able to sniff packets on this mode. I still cant do that and I think I know why but I need help to fix it.
    I have two wireless card : 1- internal which is intel 2-PCMCI which is the atheros one
    I can see both of them now and get connect to any network with both. and when I run iwconfig i can see one interface wlan0, if I put it down both will go down.
    How can I get rid of intel one so the OS doesnt even see it?
    Thank you in advance,
    A.G

    Try this for monitor mode,


    Change the 7 to match the channel you want to monitor
    Code:
    su
    airmon-ng stop wlan0
    airmon-ng start wifi0 7
    please don't ask any wireless key cracking or packet sniffing questions as it is against the forum rules.


    Try here instead
