I'm trying out aircrack on my gentoo machine, I can connect to other APs using my zydas 1211rw wireless card
lsusb:
Sagem XG-760A 802.11bg

I have the zydas module and firmware loaded and working though

I have disabled all network services)
but I'm getting the following error:
localhost ~ # aireplay-ng -9 wlan0
ioctl(SIOCSIWMODE) failed: Invalid argument

ARP linktype is set to 1 (Ethernet) - expected ARPHRD_IEEE80211,
ARPHRD_IEEE80211_FULL or ARPHRD_IEEE80211_PRISM instead. Make
sure RFMON is enabled: run 'airmon-ng start wlan0 <#>'
Sysfs injection support was not found either.


so I tried :
localhost ~ # airmon-ng start wlan0

and got:
Interface Chipset Driver


iwlist wlan0 scan brings up several interfaces

any help?
thanks

Your card just doesnt support monitor mode, check aircrack-ng site for supported chipsets.

(Im just guessing , but u have to enable monitor mode first, or just do ifconfig wlanX down and try then,
u have pasted already how to enable monitor mode in aircrack way - or try that way,
but there is a comment that there is no sysinjection, so aireplay wont work rather)

Give up with aircrack, even if u had Geforce GTX 999999 Titan Super Extreme Edition cracking password would take ages, if its not in dictionary.
Not worth effort.
U can use reaver instead :D no pain, and it will do the job with greater probablitty than aircrack :D ( but in different manner, Im not sure if reaver doesnt require monitor mode, but I guess no )
And reaver is in pentoo repo.

Seems reaver needs monitor mode

https://reaver-wps.googlecode.com/svn-history/r109/wiki/HintsAndTips.wiki

but try monitor mode by airmon-ng start wlanX first and use monX then
( or just ifconfig wlanX down)
maybe its supported ?

or just get some supported chipset, those cards are cheap ( but u need good antena - it makes a lot of difference, I had a few and seems its random quality - I had best from
some airlive 'dont remeber model' card 5dBi, but it was better than any 10dBi which I had, and btw dont use powerful long distance (yagi, dishes ...) antenas , they suck on short distance, and works only on clear area)

EDIT: hmmm - maybe I misread - maybe its working, on some networks i had to manually associate by aireplay, and force reaver not to associate. or on some networks I had to tune reaver options, but I dont remember such message? why essid is null ? Check reaver options.
try other network maybe ?
( i dont remeber, havent using those tools at least 2 years )

For non-wpa networks take tutorial on aircrack :D

-i, --interface=<wlan>
Name of the monitor-mode interface to use

seems I'll have to get a new card
