 +If you have a kernel older than 2.6.26, it's recommended that you install the latest compat-wireless-old package, and apply the 2.6.27 mac80211 fragmentation patch on the package itself. No ath5k-specific patch is needed for either flavor of compat-wireless.
  
-If you have a kernel older than 2.6.26it's recommended that you install the latest compat-wireless-2.6-old packageand apply the above patch (as well as the mac80211 fragmentation patch) on the package itself.+Note that in the latest wireless-testing & linux-2.6 kernelsas well as in compat-wireless-2.6 (but not in compat-wireless-old)there is a bug that prevents the fragmentation attack from working properly when no managed interface is brought up on the same PHY as the monitor interface. As a workaround, bring up wlan0 after creating mon0 with airmon-ng.
