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]
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?
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.
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
Can you "split" a network interface in Ubuntu, similar to how airmon-ng lets you use your wireless card in managed and monitor mode, by making another interface out of the same hardware? I know it'd be slower, but I'd still like to do it.
I'm looking into assembling a debian based router/firewall system. Fortunately there is a great deal of documentation available on this subject, so I am confident the project is viable. I'm a bit stumped regarding a wireless card though, especially since I'd like to use a desktop form factor rather than one of the laptop style slots. At present, I'm going with a mini-itx board that has a couple of wired nics and a pci-e x4 expansion slot (supermicro's x7spa-h). So, I can connect an access point to one of the nics and that's job done. In the interests of having one fewer box to find space for, I'd like to use a pci-e card as a (wireless n) access point. To do this I need one capable of working as a "master", rather than only as a "client".
Google suggested D-link's dwa-556. Linuxwireless.org suggests the D-link DWA-556 uses ath9k. It also thinks the ath9k driver is capable of operating as an access point. Can I take this to mean that the DWA-556 will be usable as an access point? If so, all is well, and I may go forth and find any card that uses a driver marked AP capable. If not, say because it's a hardware limitation, how do I go about finding a card that'll do what I want it to?
I like to test my network often. Until recently, I've been doing so on my old Ubuntu 6.06 laptop... the problem is It's too slow (1.06 GHz single Core ), and old, (designed for Win 2000) to really be effective any more. So, recently I bought a new laptop...one with a Dual core Processor, and twice the speed. Anyway, I'm running Fedora Core 10 X86_64 on it. My problem is as follows:
Although I do have MadWifi installed, for some reason, I still can't put my Atheros based Netgear WPN511 into monitor mode. (in the Network configuration window, it says "Atheros Communications Inc. Atheros AR5001X+" I'm not sure what it means but I'll put it in in case it helps) does MadWifi not work with Fedora? if not, is there a Fedora 10 (X86_64) alternative?
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'm running Ubuntu 10.04 Server. I can't get my Wireless Card & Wired Card to work at the same time. My interfaces file is incorrect, when I comment out 1 of the interfaces the other works. I have attached my interfaces file.
I have 2 wlan cards. wlan0 and wlan1. wlan0 is in AP mode(Master mode) using hostap. wlan1 is connected to another wireless network and is in Managed mode. Now I want to make a bridge between wlan0 and wlan1. I do it like that:
I have lenovo thinkpad, T61 with Intel 4965AGN wireless card. It is a N card, it works under N mode in windwos, but not in Ubuntu (10.10). I installed ndiswrapper and got the windows xp drivers for this card. the issue is that i got an error when installing the drivers and since then I cannot use wireless.
The error i got is: Code: Module could not be loaded. Error was: FATAL: Could not read '/lib/modules/2.6.35-24-generic/kernel/ubuntu/ndiswrapper/ndiswrapper.ko': No such file or director I unistalled the driver, but now under network connections no wireless connections appear, nothing. I cannot use wirless anymore.
