In an earlier post I asked for help getting a new Senao Engenuis 2511CD card
(Prism 2.5 chipset) working with dstumbler. I have been getting "error:
unable to ioctl device socket: Invalid argument"
So, I've spent about a week trying to get this working with RELEASE-3.6, so
now I have to look to other tools. (I know there are wireless networks out
there and I know the card works because it has been used in another
machine). I thought I could install airsnort after reading some posts on
misc@ which have suggested this. That said, I have been unable to compile
the code (it complains about missing linux/wireless.h, and I've tried
looking for info on bsd wrapper stuff) and I cannot find openbsd-related
airsnort compile/install instructions anywhere. Has anyone got some handy
hints to help me out here?
I've also looked at installing Ethereal after reading that it can capture
raw 802.11 packets so that I can send the output elsewhere for analysis.
Imagine my joy when it is no longer in ports (yes, I've read the posts on
the reasons why). Is it worth me spending time trying to install Ethereal
from source or am I truly wasting my time?
Have I got this all wrong and should I be using a different tool?
