Description Lyubomir Grigorov 2011-04-10 22:00:19 UTC
ahdemo does not work with if_ath properly. Cannot sniff or inject packets
when attempting - it just returns to promp without any output.

Monitor mode is fine, but it can only sniff, no inject.

I used a PCMCIA card: DWL-G650


People claim to have gotten if_ath to work with ahdemo, but for me it
just enters mode ahdemo and can't sniff or inject.
How-To-Repeat: Sniffing:
$ sudo ifconfig wlan0 create wlandev ath0 wlanmode ahdemo 
$ sudo ifconfig wlan0 channel 6 up
$ sudo airodump-ng wlan0

$sudo aireplay-ng -9 wlan0
