Hi,


I think you will find this is a generic "error" message as such, not really
requiring reporting to the coders, but more research by yourself about your
hardware, and whether it has drivers that support monitor mode in Windows,
etc., etc.

You may find you need to use special drivers, or use the device under Linux,
or use different hardware. Probably not actually a software problem as such,
and probably not something really needing reporting to the software writers
(I expect the please report this to us bit is shown in all their software's
error messages). A bit more reading about this software, your hardware,
drivers, reference drivers, monitor mode, etc., will probably reveal this as
a very common problem requiring your attention in other areas. A bit (or
more accurately somewhere between quite a lot and a lot) of reading and
research on your part, around this subject, software, your hardware and its
drivers, etc., should provide you with a more meaningful understanding and
answer, etc.


Best wishes,



News Reader

This isn¢t a good error. This is telling you that the software is having
problems putting your network card into promiscuous mode. Basically your
card isn¢t compatible. Your only option is to try a different card.

Re: AirSnare freeware for detecting which neighbor is warsitting your wireless router


Why is this subject even being discussed here?

Why aren't wireless users using WEP/WPN security codes?

So what, that somebody can see you are wireless?  With a
proper security code, who cares?

Presumably it's still a valid subject for discussion, firstly because it
emphasises the *need* for encryption, and secondly because if you suspect
that your encryption has been hacked (eg someone's discovered your password)
you need to be aware of that fact and know who's doing it so you can a)
change the password and b) beat the neighbour about the head with a baseball
bat!

By the way, I presume you mean "WPA" (WiFi Protected Access) rather than
WPN.
