Ok so i have googled the S*** out of this one visit they wiki for airodump and everything. My problem is even with Network Manager off etc and no connection to the internet at all i still hop channels even when i use the following command:
airodump-ng --bssid [bssid] --channel 6 -w [filename] -o ivs mon0
it dumps fine however it continues to rifle through the wireless channels even though its set to channel 6.
I successfully cracked one WEP key, then i tried again and this happened. I restarted and same thing it wouldn't go away.
So my question is what exactly am i doing wrong? i even disabled the services for the wifi utility and everything.
Its an intel wireless card built into my hp5250ca laptop.
Its clearly my first post but i promise you i have tried everything i can find and it still hops channels
thanks for reading
Edit: sorry for double post i wrote this one then read the rules and it said i could only post in the newbie section so i figured that is why it hadn't been added to the forums yet. :S
doesn't really help me solve my issue but thanks for showing interest O.o
I have to say that i added an additional wireless card and it resolved my issues completely. With one card connected to the internet the other card wouldn't need to hop channels.
no i wasn't starting it on 6 because i wanted to scan all channels for all ssid's then lock it down after with
airodump-ng --bssid [bssid here] -c 6 -w [file name] -o ivs mon0
okay what you do:
Scan withor something like thatCode:Airodump-ng mon0
then you choose your AP, note the channel + the bssid, and then STOP the Search
airodump-ng -w whatever -c whatever² --bssdi whatever³ mon0
Try bringing wlan0 down before putting the card into monitor mode or scanning.
ifconfig wlan0 down
airmon-ng start wlan0
Sometimes the card will continue channel hopping if you don't take wlan0 down first.
