I've searched for too many days and nights so many information went through my head. I want to buy a usb wireless which support master mode. (not monitor mode) Now I'm interested in Alfa AWUS036NEH. I like it because it is small an have a long antenna strong 1000mW. signal. (AWUS036H is a little bit big for me) However from what i have read AWUS036NEH is not supported in master mode (softAP)(or may be supported but with hostapd, but again some forum said it doesn't support and some say it does... Totally confused.) -> Actually AWUS036NEH is not expensive but I don't want to invest in something i'm not sure about so I won't buy it until I really know if it works. So I switch to find out what is for sure
1. supported in master mode in Ubuntu
2. Have a long antenna (like 5" or something. I have no idea about hardware but I think longer antenna should send signal more further)
3. small (about normal USB size don't count antenna)
Sadly I only find Alfa AWUS036NEH the only option for me , the others has no brand. However TL-WN722N is what most likely to fit. Only it has a shorter antenna. Can i replace the antenna with a longer one (with some others brand) by myself? (TL-WN722N can use master mode in kernel 3.0 ? already ? some say it should but i've not seen one that stated clearly) Ahh I think the above is totally messed up. I will make long story short.
1. Is AWUS036H or AWUS036NEH support master mode in ubuntu ? (if yes with hostapd or something?)
2. Is TL-WN722N or TL-WN722NC can work in master mode in Ubuntu ? (if yes with hostapd or something?)
3.Can I replace the original antenna with a longer one ?(with other brand or same brand) Will the signal be stronger?
i am wanting to turn my Debian box into a wireless AP, but for some unknown reason the wireless card won't switch into master mode when i run the command #iwconfig wlan1 mode master i get this Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06): SET failed on device wlan1 ; Invalid argument. what does this mean and what do i need to configure/install to get it to work my wirless card is supported i checked it's a zydas chipset using the zd1211rw driver SMC EZ Connect SMCWUSB-G [URL]
Anybody have any idea that how to set the ath9k in master mode in fedora 11. I am unable to set the same. I am using the D-Link DWA556 card using the kernel built in ath9k.Find below the output I got while setting up it in master mode sudo iwconfig wlan0 mode master.Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06):SET failed on device wlan0 ; Invalid argument.Does that mean that master mode is not supported?Also Want the information if there is any separate community or development group for ath9k development and download the source of same except linuxwireless.com.
I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 and try to get my wifi to work in master mode. The dongle is a Asus 167g v3 and I'm using the rtl8192SU driver. I can connect to a network or put the dongle in Ad-hoc mode without a problem. It's when I try to put in master mode some problem occurs. When I do:
Code: sudo iwconfig wlan1 essid test mode master This is the output I'm getting: Code: wlan1 unassociated Nickname:"rtl_wifi" Mode:Master Access Point: Not-Associated Sensitivity:0/0
The dongle is in master mode but it fails to assign a SSID. I also tried to set it up in /etc/network/interfaces but the result is always the same... No SSID
I am trying to get my wireless card working in master mode. I am running Jaunty server 2.6.28-11 x86_64. I have compiled hostapd with nl80211 enabled. The interface is using ath9k. I have tried to compile compat-wireless with this patch. However IEEE80211_IF_TYPE_AP was undefined along with IEEE80211_IF_TYPE_VLAN. In addition the latest version of compat-wireless needs to be patched for kernels < 2.6.31 with this. However when using this patch IRQ_WAKE_THREAD is still undefined.
I have got to this message:
$ sudo hostapd /home/jophish/.hostapd.conf Configuration file: /home/jophish/.hostapd.conf Failed to set interface wlan0 to master mode.
I try to set-up an Access point using ubuntu 11.04. I am using the minimal configuration file from [URL] together with a TP-Link TL-WN422G (Atheros chipset). I've installed the linux-backports-net-natty-generic drivers. But when trying to start hostapd I always get this output:
Code: # hostapd -dd -K test.conf Configuration file: test.conf Failed to set interface wlan0 to master mode. nl80211 driver initialization failed. wlan0: Unable to setup interface. ELOOP: remaining socket: sock=5 eloop_data=0x9b9440 user_data=(nil) handler=0x43d980 I have also disabled the network-manager for this device by adding this to /etc/network/interfaces:
1) it cannot see any networks around 2) i cannot setup it in master mode to use my PC as a router
As far as i can see, the device is recognized and the correct driver (rt73usb) is loaded. I was able to connect to a laptop somehow (the laptop could see other networks and the adapter's PC-to-PC network). I'd like to make it work as a router, i.e. share my internet connection (eth0) via wlan0. Here is what i have:

after successfully configuring the dwa-552 to work in master mode in ubuntu 10.04 (ath9k driver) I ran some file transfer tests. The download speed is very good (~50mbps) but the upload speed spikes at about 10-20mbps for the first few KB and then it's nonexistent (0-1kbps). This only affects file transfers or otherwise bandwidth consuming processes. Normal web browsing or ssh is not affected. After running a speedtest of my internet connection which is routed through the AP I could upload to the internet with 1mbps which is my inet connection maximum so apparently this is not affected. Tried the same file transfers with netcat to eliminate any other factors and had the same problem. dmesg and hostapd debug did not report anything unusual
I want to switch my laptop from XP to Ubuntu, but right now, i cant risk installing it. i dont want to have it partitioned so i can dual boot, so for now i only run the try-it-out mode.Before i consider installing though, i want to see if i can get everything to work ahead of time, that way im not regreting instalation. I have a Compaq Presario V2000 laptop, with 55GB hard drive and 516MB ram. So far, the trial mode is working great, but the wireless will not work. Ive tried to install the driver, but i am unable to do so. I have looked this up, and i have tried many things, and so far, none have worked.I was wondering if it was just part of the trial thing or not, but it is a Broadcom Wireless BCM4318 driver
after trying several pci and usb network cards none were able to have their ssid broadcasted. The question that i have is: Can a suse box be converted to act as an acces point without the use of atheros based hardware, without switching over to ubuntu and or debian, without the use of openwrt?
I can't get my wireless into monitor mode. I;m running ubuntu 9.1 karmic It connects fine to wireless networks. But when i do: sudo iwconfig wlan0 mode monitor. I get: Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06) :SET failed on device wlan0 ; Device or resource busy. I can only see wlan0 (wmaster0, eth0), not ath0 or wifi0 mentioned elsewhere, in wireshark. I only see my own ip and packets coming to and from that. my system tells me i have an atheros ar9285 chipset in place.
Hardware: Vostro 3500, BCM4353Ubuntu 10.10Today I decided to test uptime on battery. But when I started using battery I noticed that internet connection is very slow(around 1-4 KB/s, normally ~128KB/s).I used Code:iwpriv eth1 set_pm 0(pm = power mode? And what means this parameter 0, 1 and 2?)and everything seems to be ok now.And my question is - where can I edit which power mode settings for wifi are used on battery?
I have a built in wireless card that is capable of connecting to my network on the Wireless N protocols. However it will only work at G speeds. It shows it's connection speed at 54mbps and when i set the network at N only mode it could not even connect. How do I get it to connect at the faster wireless speeds? I need the faster speeds as I have a media server on my network. This is the hopefully relevant information you'll need from my network
I'm managing a residential network. Each flat is its own subnet, and can only communicate with the other flats through a router (i.e. no broadcast). 95% of these 300 subnets only contains windows computers (from lambda users).
My final goal is to be able to browse the entire network from any computer.
I set up a samba server acting as a wins server, and every computer is aware of it because it is registered in the dhcp. So name resolution is working fine for everyone.
The same samba server is set to be the "Domain master browser":
workgroup = WORKGROUP wins support = yes prefered master = yes local master = yes domain master = yes os level = 65
When I browse the network (using "net view" or "browstat view"), I can only see the servers which are in the same subnet as the domain master browser.
Now, when in a subnet the computers arrange themselves to find a "local master browser", the only visible computers are the one in that subnet.
What I don't understand is why all the local masters don't synchronize their lists with the domain master.
So, to sum up, every subnet get the following behaviour:
-if a local master is elected, the only visible computers are the one in the same subnet.
-if no local master is elected, the only visible computers are the one in the subnet of the domain master.
-if I add another samba, configured as a local master winning all elections, then the magic is working and the lists are synchronized.
What is expected: -every computer can see all the computer from all the subnets.
I'm looking at buying one of the above cards, and was wondering if anyone knew if they worked in master mode (e.g. as an access point). According to the Aircrack-ng site, they support packet injection and monitor mode. Is master mode support solely up to the driver used with the card, or does the card have to physically support it?
Running Ubuntu 10.10 on Hp Mini 1030nr My wireless card is a Broadcom BCM4312. I have the b43 driver installed. When I disable networking I can change to monitor mode but then it changes back to manage mode when I enable networking again. I tried using airmonNG but it;s not working.
I am running a version of Ubuntu 10.4 with XFCE loaded (actually Qimo, a distribution for kids). I am using a pci wireless card with a broadcom 43XX chipset and WPA2 authentication using the Broadcom STA driver. In an account with privileges I set the auto eth1 (which is what my wireless card comes up as) to connect automatically, and make available to other users.
When I switch to the kid's account, the wireless connects just fine. Then, if the computer is not used for a period of time, the powersavings mode kicks in. When the computer is woken up, the wireless connection does not attempt to reconnect. If you right click on the networking icon it doesn't even show any available connections, even though it can be found by clicking edit connections. The only way I can get it to reconnect is to restart the machine (I will admit that I did not try to restart the networking service, I will try that tonight).
Any ideas? This has been driving me nuts for a few days now. The users during the day are non technical and can't deal with these kind of issues. I can post more details about the setup (as recommended by the sticky post) tonight. I am at work at the moment and can't get to the machine from here - because it has removed itself from the network again.
I'm a student who is working on a wireless research project. I have a madwifi driver for Atheros chipset on Debian Linux. With having the wireless interface get into monitor mode, I want to forward the captured packets from the wireless interface to the other Ethernet interface so that a different computer which is connected to this machine via Ethernet receives those packets. I checked that alll packets are received in the wireless interface using TCPDUMP. I tried to forward those packets with IPTABLES like 'iptables -p FORWARD -i ath0 -o eth2 -j ACCEPT' However, I couldn't see any packets forwarded to eth2 using TCPDUMP.
I have a load balancer with 2 web servers behind it. The web servers rsync with cloud storage to update their apache directories 1 time every hour. Apache is just running php pages that pull/push data to a DB so they dont need to be updated that often. However I need to figure out how to implement a Master/Master MySQL setup to have my web servers point to for the PHP stuff. I need to implement it without having a single point of failure. The Load balancers are useless for failover as they only detect availability based on Ping request. So putting a master/master setup behind a Load Balancer is out. what is the best way to setup the master/master mysql in a HA setup without the use of a load balancer provided by the host?
First of all, this tutorial will use NDISWRAPPER, not b43, not wl (Broadcom STA). So, hooray for new method (actually, the only method ). Now, I don't want anyone to get scared because of bad experiences with Ndiswrapper or whatever, it's actually quite easy. I did not come up with any of this info. I'm just putting this guide together from Kacper Szczesniak's info (who came up with this method), WifiDocsDriverbcm43xxFeisty_No-Fluff from the Ubuntu Wiki, and my experience. The Broadcom STA (wl) driver has references to monitor mode in it's code, but does not have that functionality in reality. The Broadcom Windows driver on the other hand does have this capability. So, for monitor mode to work, you will need a patched version of ndiswrapper.
1) Install the Linux kernel headers:
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)
2) Install the tools required to compile Ndiswrapper:
