    I think for injection to work the driver will need to be patched: Login or Signup to view links / downloads

    When you say no power, what happens when you place your device in monitor mode and enter iwconfig in Terminal?

    Yes, the zd1211rw needs patches for injection. I thought Xiaopan had them as pen testing distro - BT5 does. It uses the stock linux driver ? no good for security tests !!

    Power - iwconfig gives only infos on Tx. It say 0dBm for wlan0 and mon0 - is this helpful ?? Don't think so.

    I think Linux wireless people keep breaking power code because they do not cope with 3 different ways of drivers reporting power. They try 'one size fits all' and nothing much works reliably as result. I think only some 2.6 kernels get zd1211rw right from what I read. Once it was in kernel, the zd1211 devs seem to give it up as working. It isn't, but no-one cares - it is very old device - nearly 2006 LOL.
