I bought an ASRock USB WiFi dongle from HAK5 recently. I'm using on my XPS13 running Ubuntu 17.04. When I plug it in and do an ifconfig it returns as wlx002522508b5d If I then try and pit it in monitor mode using sudo airmon-ng start wlx002522508b5d The device then vanishes from the ifconfig list and I get phy0 wlan0 wl Broadcom Limited BCM4352 802.11ac Wireless Network Adapter (rev 03) phy6 wlx002522508b5d rt2800usb Ralink Technology, Corp. RT2870/RT3070 Interface 15mon is too long for linux so it will be renamed to the old style (wlan#) name. (mac80211 monitor mode vif enabled on [phy6]wlan1mon (mac80211 station mode vif disabled for [phy6]wlx002522508b5d) I then try sudo wash -i wlan1mon it returns wash v1.4 WiFi Protected Setup Scan Tool Copyright (c) 2011, Tactical Network Solutions, Craig Heffner <email@example.com> [X] ERROR: Failed to open 'wlan1mon' for capturing I have tried substituting wlam1mon for [phy6]wlan1mon, [phy6], [phy6]wlx002522508b5d, wlx002522508b5d and they all return the Failed to open error. Where an I going wrong please? Thanks for any help
I could just be forgetting a step, but I haven't found an answer through any other questions I received my alfa AWUS036NEH from Hakshop about a week ago. I installed Kali in a VirtualBox virtual machine and have tried using the Alfa on a few test networks. (A Linksys, an Arris, and Netgear routers) I connect the Alfa to the virtual machine and it appears in lsusb and I can see it with Airmon-ng as wlan0. Starting airmon-ng on wlan0 returns monitor mode on mon0. Airmon-ng does list three running processes as possible issues. I have stopped one at a time and then all three without any difference in the problem. I start airodump on mon0 and airodump starts cycling through channels. A minute later I receive one Base Station result with no SSID. Airodump started collecting frames, but then I realized the MAC address the Alfa's Mac address. I also tried Wireshark on that mon0. It only collected information originating from the Alfa that should be on mon0. Neither showed any evidence of the multiple networks in the same room. If pictures would be helpful, I can post those. If any specifics about the setup are needed, just tell me. I'm not sure what is needed to help.
