when using recon or the module site survey without any interface in monitor mode i get a ton of wifi networks that are around me. but when entering monitor mode to try to capture a handshake only the ones close to me will show up. can any shed some light on this? i am using upgraded antennas.  (alfa 7dBi panel)

using site survey

no monitor mode https://ibb.co/itZX9w

im abit confused, how come your interface says wlan0 but monitor mode says wlan1mon, surely monitor mode should match the interface your using, ie wlan1 = wlan1mon


i may be wrong here but just a thought

That’s just a thing in site survey it allows me to choose what interface to put in monitor mode. If there is a interface in monitor mode it will use that one for a scan.
