Hello everybody. I have a usb dongle with zd1211 chip (Fiberline WL410U) and I'm trying to let it run with rw drivers..
I downloaded the wireless kernel tree and turned on as module soft mac and zd1211rw, and then compiled. I downloaded the daily sources of drivers and firmware, compiled and loaded new modules. So it seems to work for now.. I set the correct parameters on the new eth2 device with iwconfig and ifconfig and got no errors for now. [EMAIL PROTECTED]:/home/rello# iwconfig eth2 mode managed essid CASAMIAwifi enc s:*********** ap auto [EMAIL PROTECTED]:/home/rello# iwconfig eth2 eth2 802.11g zd1211 ESSID:"CASAMIAwifi" Mode:Managed Frequency:2.452 GHz Access Point: 00:0F:3D:0A:67:18 Bit Rate=11 Mb/s Encryption key:****-****-****-****-****-****-** Security mode:open Link Quality=78/100 Signal level=78/100 Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0 Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0 [EMAIL PROTECTED]:/home/rello# ifconfig eth2 up 192.168.0.2 [EMAIL PROTECTED]:/home/rello# ifconfig eth2 eth2 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:11:F6:7F:8A:65 inet addr:192.168.0.2 Bcast:192.168.0.255 Mask:255.255.255.0 inet6 addr: fe80::211:f6ff:fe7f:8a65/64 Scope:Link UP BROADCAST RUNNING PROMISC MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 RX bytes:0 (0.0 b) TX bytes:0 (0.0 b) So i try to send some ping to another host but destination host seems unreachable. Then I try with dhclient and i got this: DHCPDISCOVER on eth2 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 7 receive_packet failed on eth2: Network is down So managed mode doesn't work.. Let's try monitor mode! I set all the parms and then start kismet.. I got this: [EMAIL PROTECTED]:/home/rello# kismet Server options: none Client options: none Starting server... Waiting for server to start before starting UI... Suid priv-dropping disabled. This may not be secure. No specific sources given to be enabled, all will be enabled. Enabling channel hopping. Enabling channel splitting. Source 0 (dongle): Enabling monitor mode for zd1211 source interface eth2 channel 6... FATAL: Failed to set channel 6 22:Invalid argument Ok I surrend for now... What's wrong with the cannel?? What's wrong in general? I really don't understand why in managed mode the link is down! Nobody got this error? Rello Using Tomcat but need to do more?
