Subject:stupid reason for needing to use wireshark too

there's a bug with every single program that tries to use an Alfa network card for some reason when it comes to setting up the interface, you always get this error:

ioctl(SIOCSIWMODE) failed: Device or resource busy

ARP linktype is set to 1 (Ethernet) - expected ARPHRD_IEEE80211,
ARPHRD_IEEE80211_FULL or ARPHRD_IEEE80211_PRISM instead.

kismet does the same I guess... the only solution I can find is to use wireshark to start monitoring the interface first, then run another program at the same time, then anything else works.
