For some days now I am trying to configure aircrack-ng on my system and I am not able to do so.The closest thing I have come to now is:

  • use wlan card as normal but not being able to put it in monitor mode ( sudo aircrack-ng start eth1 (yeah when I switch to the wl driver, wlan0 becomes eth1 ))
    • using wl (broadcom sta) driver
  • card can't detect any networks, monitor can be switched on and off
    • using b43 I have tried using different versions of b43-fwcutter, broadcom-wl and firmware-b43-installer (firmware-b43-lpphy-installer), but with no success.

I am hoping that someone can help me to be able to use my card as normal and to be able to crack networks (I have done it with BackTrack)

Chip-ID: BCM4312 
Modes: b/g 
PHY Version: LP (r1)
