I have an AP i'm relaying packets to (-2 -p 0841 attack).
In the beginning the data counts collect quickly - 300 or so a second - but after about 30 mins it crawls down to 0. If I end my airodump session and start again the data count is once again on 300 a second. Why does it stop injecting or relaying packets properly?
I was thinking that to get around this I could do the following:
Resume the previous session - this however does not work when I attempt the following:
airodump-ng -c 9 --bssid 00:14:6C:7E:40:80 -w output ath0 (where ouput is the previous file I capture to).
It seems to create a new session called output-01-01.cap or some such as opposed to continuing the previous session.
How am I to resume the session properly - e.g having my previous data captured still in the session.
If i use mergecap, mergecap -w out.cap output-01.cap output-02.cap then it doesn't merge my captured packets e.g. it merges the 2x .cap files in to out.cap but when I try crack out.cap it hasn't actually merged the iv's? Why not?
