Drivers & Patches

This is updated & patched driver version page.I will update it time to time based on the different different make of card-chipset.

Enhanced Injection driver for Intel ipw3945 (External project by JMF hosted here)
This is based on a driver made for testing purposes called ipwraw. It allows raw packet Tx/Rx with the Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG adapter, it’s raw mode only and can’t be used for normal connections to the internet. ipwraw doesn’t have wireless extensions, so this modification adds some to make it easier to work with programs like aircrack-ng, kismet, mdk, …

New in ipwraw-ng 2.3.4:
* Added compatibility fixes for recent kernels (2.6.23 and newer)
* Fixed bug when setting 5.5 Mb/s rate with iwconfig
* Fixed bugs (I hope) in Makefile – it would report that old firmware versions were adequate and also had some cosmetic glitches
* Added set TxPower Wireless Extension. Now TxPower can be set using
iwconfig INTERFACE txpower TXPOWER
(INTERFACE is normally wifi0, or eth0; TXPOWER is a the value you want to set, min=-12 and max=16)

This version includes some fixes ported from ipw3945 driver. It should be more stable now…
Default speed was left at 54 MBit, you may want to lower it to 1 MBit before injection with iwconfig wifi0 rate 1M
You will have that configured automatically if you use airmon-ng from the aircrack-ng suite (changeset 847 or greater)
More information can be found on the included README.ipwraw-ng file.


RaLink RT73 USB Enhanced Driver
* Support for Fragmentation Attack
* Interface is called rausb0 instead of wlan0 to prevent some tools incorrectly detecting it as wlanng or hostap driver
* Injection speed can be selected with iwconfig <interface> rate command. The default speed yet is 54 MBit. You may want to lower it to 1 MBit before injection with iwconfig rausb0 rate 1M
* NEW: ToDS packets aren’t dropped by the driver anymore. WPA handshake captures are finally possible!

Version 3.0.0 is a new fork from the current serialmonkey CVS. It has fixes for 2.6.24 and 2.6.25 and does not need setting a MAC Address before bringing the interface up. This version includes all the enhancement of the 2.0 series of this driver. If you unplug the card while its still in use, it may crash your system. So close all applications accessing it, bring the interface down and then remove the device.
There is a tiny extra in the 3.0.0 driver. Maybe you can find it with iwpriv ;)
Version 3.0.1 has an updated base version from serialmonkey CVS. It is patched with all the features of 3.0.0 and it has been successfully tested with 2.6.26 vanilla kernel.

Go get it!


RaLink RT2570USB Enhanced Driver
* Prism header can be toggled via iwpriv, no automatic changes which screwed up packet captures!
* MAC changing supported
* Support for Fragmentation Attack

Fragmentation support is now considered as stable. 1.5.0 version has some important fixes for kernel version 2.6.19 and above.

The serialmonkey CVS repository updated its driver from a new RaLink legacy one. Version 1.6.0 is the modification of this driver with fragmentation support, MAC changing and prism headers enabled by default. This driver seems to fix some threading, some SMP and some endianness issues. So it should be more stable than previous releases. Go get it!
Version 1.6.1 works for 2.6.22 kernels and comes with some more stability improvements.
Version 1.6.2 with a new base version from serialmonkey CVS, all the patches from the previous version and support for 2.6.26 kernel:

Version 1.6.4 adds compatibility with 2.6.29.


Prism2_usb Injection driver
This is the first Prism2 USB driver that was able to inject packets. I made this before Devine had its own one. But i never released it to the public, however. Instead of his driver, this one seems to be very stable (was able to crack a whole lot of WEPs with aireplay). It shares the same issue with Devine’s driver, it doesn’t inject on kernels newer than 2.6.11. I can’t give any support or help for this since I gave my prism away. Sorry.

Installing latest Madwifi-ng drivers for Atheros Based chipsets.

use these commands from shell

bt~# svn checkout

bt~#cd trunk

bt trunk#modprobbe -r ath_pci.ko

bt trunk#make && make install

bt trunk#modprobe ath_pci

Viola you got latest injection patched drivers.
