Jmcver Posted March 11, 2013 Share Posted March 11, 2013 After watching a couple videos of using the aircrack-ng suite covered in both Ubuntu 12.04 and BackTrack 5R3, I was intrigued to try this on my own network. I have installed the most recent application and got to work. First Terminal: airmon-ng start wlan0 airodump-ng mon0 airdump-ng "My Network" --write file (started capturing) Second Terminal: aireplay-ng -0 3 -c -a mon0 (error occurs here) Waiting for beacon frame (BSSID) on channel -1 mon0 is on channel -1, but the AP uses channel 11 I've tried to look up solutions, and one was to patch the compat-wireless driver. I did so, and still get this result. I've read that I need to start both airmon-ng and airodump-ng with specific channel associations, 11. I do this and still nothing. While I am airodumping, the terminal lines running state my channel is fixed to -1. CH 11 ][ fixed channel mon0: -1 I like to use Ubuntu for this rather than BT5R3 because its a little better in my opinion, but I get the exact same issue using it. Either way, if there is some solution, it would be much appreciated.
