If I disable WiFi in the web gui, wlan0 is not recognized by airmon-ng and if I have WiFi enabled, I can't change the channel of mon0, BTW i'm using ssh on backtrack5 r2 gnome. I am trying to get the pineapple to run airodump-ng.

Please correct me if I'm wrong but I'm pretty sure you don't need to do any of that.

***edit***

yeah, you do have to do all of that. otherwise you will be stuck on channel 11 =P


airodump-ng mon.wlan0
[/CODE]

From what I've read, wifi routers have to create the pseudo interface mon.wlan0 for listening to probe requests. This leaves you with a monitor interface which can be used with airodump-ng.

A little of my garbled knowledge:

airmon-ng creates a pseudo interface as well, it leaves it's parent device in it's original 'mode' so it may still be used. This is different than say

[CODE]
ifconfig wlan0 down
iwconfig wlan0 mode monitor
ifconfig wlan0 up
airodump-ng wlan0
[/CODE]

...which WON'T leave you with the ability to still use wlan0 for anything other than monitoring the channels.

I am unable to test this as my radio doesn't 'hear' anything. Only sends out probes. I have to get a new one

works for me, at least it used to.

The problem is that if you do airpdump-ng mon.wlan0 it is stuck on one channel

Edit: The commands to do this are airmon-ng stop mon.wlan0

ifconfig wlan0 down

ifconfig wlan0 up

airmon-ng start wlan0

airodump-ng mon0

how are you connected to the pineapple; ethernet?

From reading above the comments. To run airmon-ng you have to bring it down and bring back up... What happens if you want to change the mac address is it the same? You bring it down do a macchanger -r then bring it back up?

I have not tried changing the mac address but I would assume so

I'm working on v2.6.3 and I'm trying to get airodump-ng to work on all channels (and hopefully reaver/wash eventually)

If I execute


airmon-ng stop mon.wlan0
ifconfig wlan0 down
ifconfig wlan0 up
airmon-ng start wlan0
airodump-ng mon0
[/CODE]

airodump-ng gets no results

If I execute

[CODE]
ifconfig wlan0 down
iwconfig wlan0 mode monitor
ifconfig wlan0 up
airodump-ng wlan0
[/CODE]

The SSH loses the connection after "ifconfig wlan0 up"

try killall hostapd before bringing wlan0 down

also mon.wlan0 is no longer in the most recent firmware

killall hostapd
ifconfig wlan0 down
ifconfig wlan0 up
airmon-ng start wlan0
airodump-ng mon0
[/CODE]

Still only scanning Ch11.

ok try

[CODE]
killall hostapd
ifconfig wlan0 down
airmon-ng start wlan0
airodump-ng mon0
[/CODE]

basically keep wlan0 down

I beleve there is a command to make an interface channel hop iw or iwconfig

The fix is to execute this:

sed 's/wifi down/killall hostapd \&\& ifconfig wlan0 down/g' -i wlan.php[/CODE]

You should execute this command over SSH.

It will be in the stable version coming up.

Edit: Sorry, this only fixes the wireless toggle.

The fix for this is included in the upcoming stable release.

Best Regards,
