I have a
broadcom BCM43142 wireless card, and wish to enable monitor mode. I'm using the
wl driver, manually upgraded to the latest version. This card is not supported by the
Monitor mode is not supported on the
wlan0 interface, but according to the documentation, this should enable a
prism0 interface with monitoring capabilities:
echo 1 > /proc/brcm_monitor0
The moment I write
1 to that file, however, my system freezes completely.
How can I enable monitor mode, switch to another driver, or at least debug the freezing problem?
