It should be:
NOT airmon-ng start wifi0 -c 6airmon-ng start wifi0 6
Hey all! I am trying to select what channel to use when putting my wireless card (Netgear WPN511) into monitor mode. As you know this card uses madwifi so I have to use airmon-ng start wifi0 to start a VPA called ath0. How do i select what channel the card uses? airmon-ng start wifi0 -c 6 for example does not work. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough -- Albert Einstein
have you tried
airmon-ng start ath0 6
what ultimately are you trying to do, why do you need in to start on a specific channel ?
Some days i feel like King Midas in Reverse - everything i touch turns to sh*t...............
airmon-ng start wlan0
airodump-ng -c 6 wlan0
