Has anyone Helix (http://www.e-fense.com/helix) expertise? My Orinoco
Classic Gold 8410WD card doesn't support monitor mode w/the Orinoco
driver although
Helix (Oct/Dec v1.5) is advertised to contain the *patched* Orinoco drivers.
'iwpriv eth0' doesn't list 'monitor' and I can't manually set the
channel either (like Mr. Knapka).

Is this a problem with my Gold card or the Orinoco driver? Aside from
rfmon, everything works great!  Any ideas?
