Hi there,

I am having issues with my current broadcom drivers not having rfmon. In the readme it is said that there is issues due to having to use ndiswrapper, but in this case ubuntu 8.10 has linux drivers for my card, so i was wondering if there is some way to enable rfmon on my current drivers or are there any known alternate drivers?

lspci | grep Broadcom\ Corporation
01:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11a/b/g

FATAL: Failed to set monitor mode: Invalid argument. This usually means your drivers either do not support monitor mode, or use a different mechanism for getting to it. Make sure you have a version of your drivers that support monitor mode, and consult the troubleshooting section of the README.
