> 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

> ARPHRD_IEEE80211_FULL or ARPHRD_IEEE80211_PRISM instead.

I don't know what you're talking about - I use alfas heavily and have never seen this.
