    If it is undetected then it is not supported.

    Version 0.4.2 has been stated as compatible but no one has tested it until now: http://xiaopan.co/downloads/

    The good news is that the Linux drivers for the RT61 are well developed and has support for packet injection. I suggest you use BackTrack or Ubuntu and enter the following:

    Code:
    Select All
    wget http://rt2x00.serialmonkey.com/rt61-cvs-daily.tar.gz tar xvfz rt61-cvs-daily.tar.gz cd rt61-cvs-* cd Module make make install rmmod rt61pci 2>/dev/null modprobe rt61
    You also need the following each time you want to use the device in monitor mode:
    Code:
    Select All
    iwpriv <interface name> rfmontx 1

    I used backtrack in the past and it was autodetected. I could inject packets without problems. now I want to use xiaopan for my testing neeeds because it's small and not resource demanding. I will give it a try now but in case it doesn't work can I use the above methond for Xiaopan to install the drivers?

    Unfortunately not, Tiny Core, which is based on Xiaopan use different extensions.

    If ver 0.4.2 doesn't work I will have to ask you to try to integrate RT61 driver. My 3 PC's all use the same Airlive WT2000PCI card.

    First let me know of the lsmod output in RootShell. You might have to blacklist some conflicting drivers and modprobe the right one.

    The drivers are not there for your card so the system does not know how to detect and use them. You should get something like this:

    rt61pci 13632
    rt2x00pci 3160 rt61pci
    rt2x00lib 14536 rt61pci,rt2x00pci
    rfkill rt2x00lib
    firmware_class rt2x00lib
    mac80211 rt2x00pci,rt2x00lib
    cfg80211 rt2x00lib,mac80211
    eeprom_93cx6 rt61pci

    Yeah, I am studiying TCL and driver instalation in it.Since I am no expert in Linux ( more like greenhorn) this may take awhile( under condition I don't render system completey useless by tampering with system data).

    If you upload the drivers here i will incorporate them and send you a link to the remastered ISO. Might take me a few days though.

    Also there is a neat little tool for RT chipsets you might wanna integrate this into your future XiaoPan releases.
