phixxer Posted March 26, 2017 Share Posted March 26, 2017 I'm just getting started in the packet capture phase and after getting the ALFA USB WiFi AWUS036NEH and successfully putting it into monitor mode I see it is set to channel 1. With this setting I only see beacons from waps, not traffic from the target channel 6 for one. I have done the usual searching the web and the only mention of channel setting I have seen is within Wireshark itself. Being on version 2.0.2 and on Linux I don't see the options they reference under "capture/options/wireless", doesn't exist. And in my mind I would think that the channel is set on the interface, not the software, I may be wrong, call me noob. Any help is appreciated.
