Aircrack-ng Suite Ubuntu 12.04


Recommended Posts

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.
