SIOCSIFFLAGS: Unknown error 132 message

If you are using Backtrack 5 or Backtrack 5 R1 within a Vmware while using USB Wifi Devices like the RTL8187 Chipset ( ALFA AWUS 036H ) you run probably into this Error Message:

airmon-ng start wlan0

SIOCSIFFLAGS: Unknown error 132 message

To solve this issue, use the following commands:


cd /usr/src/linux/drivers/net/wireless/rtl818x/rtl8187/


patch -p0 < silly-rfkill-patch.patch

cd /usr/src/linux

make drivers/net/wireless/rtl818x/rtl8187/rtl8187.ko

cp drivers/net/wireless/rtl818x/rtl8187/rtl8187.ko /lib/modules/

After that reboot your vmware/backtrack, and your issue is solved.
