Enable monitor/promiscuous mode on Cisco Atheros AR5001X+

I have a Cisco Aironet Atheros AR5001X+ wireless card installed on an HP laptop running Ubuntu 8.10. The card is working and I would like to know how to enable monitor/promiscuous mode on it so that I can use wireshark to capture network traffic at work. I would also like to know if I can enable the card in monitor/promiscuous mode in Windows XP and how? Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Re: Enable monitor/promiscuous mode on Cisco Atheros AR5001X+

in a console window:

sudo ifconfig ath0 PROMISC

password:

it should be ath0 for an atheros chip, but may be wlan0 or something else

you will need to install Winpcap for windows
