I'm not totally sure what your problem may be but from looking at the ACX100 site there are a few people having problems getting the cards into monitor mode.

You might start following this thread and jump in with any information you have. It looks like the developers are having a hard time getting the ACX111 drivers to work with some features (i.e. WEP) and monitor mode is not a big priority.

Good Luck,
