8.09 rc1 and 8.09 rc2, 2.4 kernels won't go into monitor mode. Wireless is enabled, not configured and not bridged.
ifconfig wl0 down iwconfig wl0 mode monitor
gives this error:
Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06) :
SET failed on device wl0 ; Invalid argument.
ifconfig wl0 down wlc monitor 1 iwconfig
causes a reboot.
I've tried many combinations of ifconfig wl0 down/up, ifdown/ifup prism0, etc. The 2.6 kernel works with the above commands, but I like the wireless features and stability in 2.4.
