 +===== WPA/WPA2 fails in managed mode =====
 +On recent kernels, the patched driver fails to work in normal WPA/WPA2 mode.  In this case, use the patched ieee80211 driver for injection and use the mac80211 version for normal WPA/WPA2.  In order to do this you will have to blacklist the unwanted module based what you plan to use your system for.  IE For injection, blacklist the rtl8187 module.  For WPA/WPA2, blacklist the r8187 module.
