    Default Unable to lock the card to specific channel.

    Top of the morning to ya

    I got a problem with "locking my card" to a specific channel. I've tried the airodump-ng -c 11 command, airmon-ng start wlan0 11, I've tried to use the command iwconfig wlan0 channel 11......

    None of the above will work. Isn't that weird? does anyone have a solution to that problem of mine?

    The wlan card is a Linksys WMP54GR.

    What kind of error message do you receive, and does your card function in monitor mode otherwise? According to aircrack-ng both Linksys WMP54G v4 and Linksys WMP54G-UK v4.1 are supported, but there is no mention of WMP54GR.

    if you keep running -airodump-ng wlan0- shell , then the card will not lock channel. Just close the -airodump-ng wlan0- shell .

    This can sometimes happen! it happens to me to!

    Here's how to solve it! First do you information gathering first with either kismet or airodump

    "airodump-ng [deviceinterface]"

    Now write down the mac addresses that interest you + the channels the AP's are on...

    now once you've done that close that airodump or kismet window...

    usually you can now just do

    "airodump-ng -c [channel] -w [filename] --bssid [bssidofchoice]"

    and it will lock on whatever channel you specified...

    if still however it is not, and its still roaming close that window and do

    "airmon-ng stop [deviceinterface]"
    "airmon-ng start [deviceinterface] [channel]"

    now when you do the airodump command specifying the channel (-c) still it should now stay!
