wlan0/wlan1 on Nano


Recommended Posts

I've seen a few posts on this but can't find a definitve answer, I use an external wifi card on the Nano to create my AP and everything works fine.

I understand not being able to use wlan1 as an AP if using Pine but why is it not possible to use wlan0 as the AP and wlan1 for Pine. Clearly I don't understand what wlan0 is used for, can someone enlighten me or refer me to the relevant info.

Hi Artuk,

Wlan0 is for running the Open AP (hidden by default, used for pulling clients in), and Management AP (the WPA2 one you set up on first boot).
Wlan1 is usually used in monitor mode in conjunction with PineAP, Recon, or other modules and tools.
