Had some problems earlier but they are solved once I googled some more.

Now the problem is I can't configure monitor mode using FEDORA 7!!

Ran ifconfig and got:
wlan0     Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:0E:XX:XX:XX:XX
          UP BROADCAST 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)

wmaster0  Link encap:UNSPEC  HWaddr 
00-0E-XX-XX-XX-XX-C8-58-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00
          UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
          RX packets:31005 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:20383 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
          RX bytes:39237968 (37.4 MiB)  TX bytes:2047462 (1.9 MiB)


THEN I RAN IWCONFIG BUT I GOT THIS ERROR:

[EMAIL PROTECTED] Bruno]# /sbin/iwconfig wlan0 mode Monitor
Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06) :
    SET failed on device wlan0 ; Device or resource busy.

(it say it's busy but i'm connected to my wired connection!!!!!)

[EMAIL PROTECTED] Bruno]# /sbin/iwconfig wmaster0 mode Monitor
Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06) :
    SET failed on device wmaster0 ; Operation not supported.

(wlan0 and wmaster0 have the same mac adress, so why it's not supported?)


FYI when i run lsmod i get among other drivers these


rc80211_simple          8257  1
zd1211rw_mac80211      46661  0
mac80211              145609  2 rc80211_simple,zd1211rw_mac80211
cfg80211               12105  1 mac80211


My Linux version is
2.6.21-1.3228.fc7 #1 SMP Tue Jun 12 15:37:31 EDT 2007 i686 i686 i386 
GNU/Linux

>From what I read the zd1211rw-mac80211 driver supports monitor mode on 
zd1211b chip based usb sticks
http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/zd1211rw

Can you help me swich my usb stick to monitor mode?
What am I missing?
