#9028 reopened defect

cfg80211 broken behaviour - doesn't display channel in monitor mode

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: developers
Priority: high Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: kernel Version: Trunk
Keywords: monitor mode channel Cc:

Description

cfg80211 won't provide the channel if the wireless device is in monitor mode; this upsets a number of programs such as aireplay (although they can be patched not to care, this isn't the ideal solution)

I'm not sure if the issue is chipset specific, it certainly affects Atheros.

Fortunately, a patch already exists to resolve the issue, it's here: https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/112770/

This patch has been rejected upstream.

comment:2 Changed 7 years ago by olipro@…

In that case, all I can suggest is to have a look here and see if any of the included patches are acceptable; http://aircrack-ng.org/doku.php?id=compat-wireless

I've built in the maxim patch to compat wireless, I'll see if it actually works.

The aircrack patch works but its just a stopgap. Binaries (aircrack) for broadcom and ar7xx are in the forum.

I have built the maxim patch on a debian box on 3 different 2.6.3x series kernels and it works well. I have also noticed that when using airserv-ng to serve a card this issue does not appear. I havent tried to serve my soekris's cards to itself yet heh.
