nano; i get this when i run airmon-ng; says "report this!"

Recommended Posts

New nano, having some success, but i get these messages (which say "report this!") when i run airmon-ng:

PHY     Interface               Driver        Chipset

null       802.11bgn           ??????      non-mac80211 device? (report this!)

null        IEEE                       ??????       ditto

null        Mode:Master     ??????       ditto

null        Tx-Power=17     ??????        ditto

null        dBm                       ??????       ditto

phy0     wlan0                    ath9k          Not pci, usb, or sdio

phy0     wlan0-1                ath9k          Not pci, usb, or sdio

phy1     wlan1                   ath9k_htc   Atheros Communications, Inc. AR9271 802.11n

 

 

When i get the above, i am ssh'ing to the Nano using wifi. Also, if i do: airmon-ng start wlan0 , i get errors (but i suspect it's because i am ssh'ing to the Nano using its wlan0?). If i do: airmon-ng start wlan1, i get the expected output of neighboring APs & clients. ... Thanks for any comments on this. --orrin

this should be in the nano section but you cannot put wlan0 in monitor mode if you are connected to it.

Okay i will look for the nano section, sorry, had the device for only one day so far.

THEN: i just shut down the Nano, connected it via cable to my laptop, and did: airmon-ng start wlan0    and i got:

null    802.11bgn    ??????        non-mac80211 device? (report this!)
null    IEEE        ??????        non-mac80211 device? (report this!)
null    Mode:Master    ??????        non-mac80211 device? (report this!)
null    Tx-Power=17    ??????        non-mac80211 device? (report this!)
null    dBm        ??????        non-mac80211 device? (report this!)
phy0    wlan0        ath9k        Not pci, usb, or sdio

Error setting channel: command failed: Device or resource busy (-16)
Error -16 likely means your card was set back to station mode by something.
Removing non-monitor wlan0mon interface...

WARNING: unable to start monitor mode, please run "airmon-ng check kill"

 

 

 

 

So does that mean i can't put wlan0 into monitor mode even if i ssh via the cable? Thanks. After your next reply i'll find the nano section. Don't know if i can delete this thread.

its all good.  So your connected via eth1 and you ssh into 172.16.42.1?  did you run airmon-ng check kill?

airmon-ng check kill

Killing these processes:

 2776 root      2744 S    /usr/sbin/wpa_supplicant -B -P /var/run/wpa_supplica
 2810 root      1376 S    udhcpc -p /var/run/udhcpc-wlan1.pid -s /lib/netifd/d
 3105 root      1372 S    grep wpa_action\|wpa_supplicant\|wpa_cli\|dhclient\|

 

Then if i try to run: airmon-ng start wlan0    (again), i get the same error (-16 etc.). So then i did the 'kill' again.

No when i use the cable to connect (ssh root@172.16.42.1) it doesn't use eth1 (i don't think). That 172 address is assigned to an interface called: br-lan.

There is no eth1, and there is an eth0 having the same MAC address as br-lan.     .... Thanks for responses.

I found the Nano section, so am asking questions over there now. Thanks/merci/obrigado.

 

I found the following in one of these forums:    wlan0 "is for running the OpenAP and the Management AP"

wlan1 is usually "in Monitor mode in conjunction with PineAP, Recon, or other modules & tools" which agrees with me using wlan1mon for airodump-ng.
