wardriving problems

18 posts in this topic

ok so heres the deal. awhile back i got an orinoco b/g gold card. so far ive patched the drivers (shmoo.airsnort.com), installed kismet and airsnort. so heres where the problem starts ok so after i installed kismet and edited the config files i went to set my wifi card into monitor mode "kismet_monitor -h" and no errors arrived, then i ran kismet and and found some problems. after a long ass time of fiddiling with the config files kismet still wouldnt run. so now ive installed airsnort with no trouble and fired up airsnort hi scan and recieved an error about the fact that it couldnt set my card into monitor mode. i dont know what to do. the only conclusion i can come to is that my drivers werent patched correctly. so if anybody could offer some input as to what course to take next that would be extremely helpful. also is there a way for me to find out if my drivers were patched correctly...like a command, executable, or somethin

Read the Kismet HOWTO here and let us know if that helps.

I've used it, works nicely with my Orinoco silver. Try WarBSD, .2 just got released. I talk to the author and it's pretty cool.

Do you know for sure that the patched drivers work with the b/g? Don't know if there would be an issue with a combo card.

I decided to stick to knoppix std for my wardriving needs. I wish though theywould add the APhoneynet to the list of tools.

What firmware does your card have ?

You should be able to read the firmware from the card from a Windows box. I actually think when you load the drivers for your card and it brings your interface up, it might do a little guessing for the firmware, I'm not sure it works. You might want to look at HermesAP as they have tools in Linux to upload firmware to your card, so they should be able to read the set firmware on the card also. If not, you could also browse the CD and find what stock firmware it came with. It seems there are seperate wlan drivers for 8.10+ firmware supporting monitor mode. I don't know the name or anything of them, just heard about it from a friend. sorry.

ciao.

Yes it does, as it uploads firmware to the card. I figured they might have tools to grab the firmware version off the card too, turns out not, as the firmware just gets uploaded to the RAM and then is reset after the card is cycled. I guess you should just get somebody to check it on a Windows box or if you have one.
