   SET failed on dvice eth1; Invalid argument.
  
Actual results:
it gives error:
Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06):
   SET failed on dvice eth1; Invalid argument.

Expected results:
the mode is changed to monitor

Additional info:
we use the driver which included by the OS itself.
Comment 1 Dave Jones 2004-11-27 01:03:59 EST
should be fixed in cvs. (enabled PROMISC config option for this chipset).
Comment 2 Yan Nan 2004-12-23 22:16:14 EST
Did this test again on RHEL40-Pre-RC2,Now the 1.0.0 2100 driver can 
set monitor mode successfully; 0.13 2200 driver can't set monitor 
mode due to the driver itself,not a integration bug.
