Hi I am in the same position as 'Johnny Network', I have an AWUS036ACM with definitely has the MT7612U chipset and appears as wlan3.
I am guessing wlan1 is used by Recon as I can see it in promiscuous mode wlan1mon
I think the question both 'Johnny network' and I have is --- How do we use wlan3 for recon ?
I am guessing the response will be something like, use the command line and put wlan3 into promiscuous mode (maybe airmon-ng start wlan3, after airmon-ng check kill)
But, how do we convince recon to use wlan3mon instead of wlan1mon ? i've tried the above and stopping wlan
