    Can't get alfa awus036h in monitor mode

    Running Kali ver 1.0.5 on Raspberry Pi with ALFA AWUS036H. I got the wireless card to work but can't get it into monitor mode. Also, wlan0 will only show up if I enter the ssid and password into the interfaces and on bootup, both eth0 and wlan0 are assigned IP addresses. I tried adding wlan1 to interfaces with no change. Any thoughts on this?


    root@kali:~# iwconfig
    wlan0 no wireless extensions.

    lo no wireless extensions.

    Try

    airmon-ng check kill


    before starting wlan0 in monitor mode, and see if that helps.
