    I am trying to get monitor mode working on Tomato, by giving the commands

    wl promisc 1
    wl monitor 1

    It works fine in the v1.28.0023 Teaman-SDHC-VLAN-SNMP-PPTPD ND VPN build for the WRT-54GL. The prism0 interface appears in the ifconfig list, like it should, and can be used to capture 802.11 packets. Also on OpenWRT and DD-WRT it works.

    However, on all other Tomato builds that I tried the prism0 interface does not appear after activating monitor mode.

    The builds that I tried are:

    TomatoUSB: tomato-K26-1.28.9054MIPSR1-beta-Std.trx

    * Toastman v1.28.20111009 MIPSR2-beta-tomato-RT-GIT K26 Std
    (Linux kernel and Broadcom Wireless Driver updates)
    *Tomato Firmware v1.28.2025 MIPSR2Teaman-RT-VLAN-PPTPD K26 USB VPN-NOCAT
    (Linux kernel and Broadcom Wireless Driver updates)
    * Also not on 9055 build, teaman 2021 and 2025, and shibby 102 builds

    It does work on the E2000 with DD-WRT v24-sp2 (04/13/11) big - build 16785 (kernel

    Anyone have a clue how to solve this problem with Tomato or get a bit further towards a solution?
