aireplay-ng channel hopping


Recommended Posts

hello all, I have been trying for awhile and have read through quite a few forums trying to prevent my aireplay-ng --deauth command from channel hopping. I have set the channel in a few different ways that i have seen in other forums and this seemed to be the most popular:

sudo ifconfig wlan* down
sudo iwconfig wlan* mode monitor channel *
sudo ifconfig wlan* up

but also didnt work for me. Is there another way to prevent this?

I am using ALFA AWUS036ACH AC1100 2.4/5ghz wifi adapter and setting it to 5ghz.

I have another ALFA that is 2.4ghz only and these commands work perfectly fine. This dual band adapter seems to be having issues with deuathenticating and also capturing handshake even on 2.4ghz channel.

This interested me so googled it. I see many others having the same issue with that device. However there was one post where someone claims to have it working by doing the following. I have not tested or have the device to test so good luck.

sudo apt update
sudo apt install dkms
sudo apt install build-essential bc libelf-dev linux-headers-`uname -r`
sudo git clone -b v5.6.4.2 https://github.com/aircrack-ng/rtl8812au.git
cd rtl*
sudo ./dkms-install.sh
sudo reboot

So looks like a driver issue. Its worth reading the git page.
