Hello,

In Microsoft site, they say the following :
"If a network monitoring program is running on your computer, the wireless network adapter will be set to monitor mode, which prevents Windows from connecting to wireless networks. To connect to a wireless network, close the network monitoring program or follow the instructions in the program to exit monitor mode."

I want to know in this case why windows can't connect through wireless card if there's a program using a monitor mode, i also want to know how a program can put a card to work in monitor or managed mode i mean what exactly occurs at the OS and at the wireless Card hardware.
Thank you for answers !
