Yeah that's why i posted a link a few posts back in this topic about promiscuous mode. If the wireless card doesn't have it he's pretty much beat. I would first look into seeing if the card has that and then work from there.

If you go on to the ubuntu forums I believe there is at least one section dedicated to this, people even put together packages you can download in one go with alternative media apps and such, but honestly, there is so much stuff out there it really does depend on your interests.

http://ubuntu-tweak.com/ is worth looking at to make things comfortable for yourself.
There are a thousand variations on this kicking around that might be of use to you.

Then look into themes and stuff just to make it look nice.

really though, Use the software center (i think its called that) and just install stuff that looks interesting to you, if you dont like it get rid of it. Its all free after all ;)

I once came across a really good FAQ type thing about this but I just had a quick look and I cant find it. I will put more effort into it later and post if I find it, I remember it cleared some stuff up for me and was nice and easy to follow.
For now though, this might be worth reading for OP: http://www.aircrack-ng.org/doku.php?id= ... c5a7d68ab0

Just found a list of some tools for linux that you might find useful to research.

While Ubuntu is a great OS, it has no advantage at hacking over another OS like Windows, or even Mac OSX.


Wait.. what? Ubuntu has no advantages over windows in regards of hacking? That certainly depends on what you wish to accomplish. OP mentioned wifi-hacking, and you yourself gave a nod to airckrack-ng for that purpose. Afaik winblows won't put your network-card in monitor-mode just like that, it take some serious workaround - so if you wanna sniff for a handshake you'd do it in OSX or linux any day. They are different systems entirely, and while windows and even mac have their strong sides, (like windows having a lot of GUI-tools available for automated tasks) saying they're equally good seems.. lazy.

I think that saying they were equal was more in an effort to say that Ubuntu doesn't have magical all powerful hacker tools or advantages over another OS. Open source is generally better, but it is important to remember that it's only better if you have the knowledge to work with it. Just like how Ubuntu will have some good software/add-ons/applications/whatever, but they will only be worth anything if you know what you're doing and apply them to tasks correctly. Neh?
One of these days there's gonna be a real profound quote down here.

Honestly N_T_H, I can't tell if you're being sincere or if you're just trolling. I think you should definitely learn about your hardware as well as your software. Try Backtrack. I also recommend you learn what the tools actually do, as in what commands are going through when you click a button. You should definitely research Shell commands too...

Once again, another instance of you replying to a thread that is long dead. Please. Don't. Necro.
