I have a usb wifi adapter:

Bus 001 Device 003: ID 148f:3070 Ralink Technology, Corp. RT2870/RT3070 Wireless Adapter

I start it in monitor mode like this:

airmon-ng start wlan1

And it says monitor mode was enabled [supposedly in wlan1]

So I do a test:

aireplay-ng -9 wlan1

But it says it found 0 APs. I tried compat-wireless, downloaded it and then compiled. And rmmoded the rt2800 modules, then tried to insert rt2800usb.ko, and it said something about unknown symbols, or something like that.

Are you sure the monitor mode is not enabled in mon0? try entering the command as aireplay-ng -9 mon0. The output of airmon-ng should indicate in what interface the monitor mode was enabled –  zurdo Jan 28 '12 at 18:09
    
I'm almost positive. It said "monitor mode enabled on wlan0", not mon0. It stuck out to me because I'd always have mon0 in the past [with my other zd1211rw usb wifi adapter] –  Matt Jan 30 '12 at 22:04

First try to install on your system bt5 R1 which have all the wireless drivers patched and check then with (double check if you have any AP on your range):

aireplay-ng -9 wlan1

If say 0 AP, then try read from rt2870 and then on the forums.

PS: aircrack work 100% on WEP and with WPA/WPA2 only with dictionary which is a waste of time.

Goto official site, and check for your adapter. There may be some patches for it. Otherwise you won't be able to run it
