I am trying to inject frames by using the inject which is provided with the code, the
  addr1=00:07:0e:b9:1f:4d add2=00:23:45:67:89:ab addr3=00:40:96:5a:a1:a1 i have a wireless card with mac address as addr1, and a access point with addr3. they are in the same BSSID. does addr1 have to equal addr3? i also tried to send the frame to the access point, which means addr1=addr3, but i got the same error. do i have to make the addr2 the same as my linksys wpc11 card, the one i am using right now is faked.

another problems i have now is that i was able to get the error message by using 4-19 version to do the injecting, when i switch to 5-04 version, i got nother from dmesg . why that ?
 i also saw somebody talking about using wlan0ap to inject frames, how can i do it in that way ? i am new here, not very familiar with it yet.   thansk a lot for the help.
