I am looking for an opensource driver that supports RFMON (monitor) mode.

I have a Atheros AR5008X Wireless Network Adapter and although it does 
support RFMON mode under linux and osx (Its in a Macbook pro 2008), due 
to the limitations of the windows NDIS API i can not get it into RFMON 
mode under windows.

The reason i need this is because i am currently running Snort with the 
-P argument (Disable promiscuous mode sniffing), and i am unable to 
monitor my network correctly.

Could someone please point me in the right direction, thanks.
