Hi all, I am trying to turn on monitor mode in Ubuntu 12.04 and wireshark 1.6.7 I have 2 wireless adapters 1. Ralink 2870/3070 instaled and working 2: Intel 5100 internal ok both have white field turn on monitor mode but both gives me error ---The capabilities of the capture device "ra0" could not be obtained (pcap_activate() failed: ra0: SIOCGIWPRIV: Argument list too long). Please check to make sure you have sufficient permissions, and that you have the proper interface or pipe specified.--- I think at least Ralink can be able to turn to monitor mode. Where to look for problems? I read wireshark wiki and I am more confused. Where to look for solution?
