wifi card monitor mode?


Recommended Posts

What is the chance my wifi card doesnt actualy support monitoring?

I type in "airmon-ng start wlan0 monitor" and get:

non-mac80211 device?

(mac80211 monitor mode vif enabled for [phy0]wlan0 on [phy0]wlan0mon)

(mac80211 station mode vif disabled for [phy0]wlan0)

If i use wifite i can scan my network but i never see any data packets, even if im downloading, watching a movie or signing into my other computer.

im running kali as base OS on a dell L-53(?)

Do some reading at the following links.

https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/en/users/drivers  shows that the loaded driver does support monitor mode but need to verify your card.

https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/en/users/drivers/b43  info on the driver

https://www.aircrack-ng.org/doku.php?id=compatible_cards information on compatibility with aircrack suite

I've read the wiki sites and re-downloaded and installed b43, b43legacy and  b43-fwcutter.  I still don't seem to be getting any data packets. Sorry for the copy paste. My card goes to wlan1mon. I can scan and see other networks. I guess my problem is i never get a handshake.
