ipw2200-1.2.1 how to

The previous version of ipw2200 can't be compiled with the linux headers 2.6.20-16-generic (used by Ubuntu 7.04) so here is the way to get the rtap0 interface working.

Get the patch and the driver
Patch the driver
tar zxvf ipw2200-1.2.1.tgz
tar zxvf ipw2200-1.2.1-inject_patch.tar.gz
patch ipw2200-1.2.1/ipw2200.c ipw2200-1.2.1-inject.patch
patch ipw2200-1.2.1/Makefile ipw2200-1.2.1-inject_Makefile.patch
cd ipw2200-1.2.1
sudo ./remove-old
sudo make
sudo make install
Turn on the module
sudo rmmod ipw2200
sudo modprobe ipw2200 rtap_iface=1

Now you should be able to bring up the rtap0 interface and listen with airodump-ng.

sudo ifconfig eth1 up
sudo ifconfig rtap0 up
sudo airodump-ng rtap0 -c 11 --bssid 00:0f:e2:xx:xx:xx --ivs -w dump
