Aircrack-ng fixed channel mon0: -1


Aircrack would not play nice on Ubuntu with a Intel Wireless iwl3945 wifi adapter
It would always say mon0 is on channel -1, but the AP uses channel x

Solution:
You need to patch the compact-wireless package and rebuild
Copy and paste the below commands into a terminal
Install your kernel headers if you dont already have them, if you do skip the first command

Code:
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)
wget http://www.orbit-lab.org/kernel/compat-wireless-3-stable/v3.6/compat-wireless-3.6.2-1.tar.bz2
tar -jxf compat-wireless-3.6.2-1.tar.bz2
cd compat-wireless-3.6.2-1
wget http://patches.aircrack-ng.org/channel-negative-one-maxim.patch
sudo apt-get install patch
patch ./net/wireless/chan.c channel-negative-one-maxim.patch
make
sudo make install
sudo make unload
sudo reboot

I had the same problem with ath5k driver for Atheros card which supposed to replace mad-wifi. I fixed it by rolling back to old good
mad-wifi and deleting ath5k .
ath5k sucks totally and with mad-wifi I get much better range

So I am a total been when it comes to Linux.. But I am using a burned to disc 12.04 for aircrack as backtrack on VMware didnt
work with my adapter, or burn to disk correctly. So now I am using my atheros card within my laptop regularly. All works well
besides the mon0 error. I tried ALL of the patch fixes but whenever I try to make or sudo make install on the compat-wireless
updated versions, I get multiple make errors.. Is it because aircrack-ng is read only? Please help.. Note that all patches (maxim
and the like) will not successfully install..

Follow up, did not fix channel -1 issue. However, my Intel 3945 card is not a problem if using BackTrack Linux
according to one forum poster. Will boot from USB flash drive and see how things go.

I am always watching can be difficult to render support for specific people. Backtrack will greatly help resolve
potential issues as they have already solve common problems.

Interesting, what does rfkill list all show?


Try disable in Ubuntu and reboot into windows, also check your hardware settings in bios, reset to defaults. I have seen
the bios setting no longer reflect the correct state
