    Default Problem with WEP hacking

    Hello, I have one problem with airmon-ng.

    When I'm typing airmon-ng
    I've got something like that:


    And then when I'm typing airmon-ng start wlan0
    I've got something like that:


    I should have (monitor mode enabled on mon0) or other
    But there is just monitor mode enabled

    And I can't do the next step because airodump-ng mon0 doesn't work.

    My WLAN Adapter:
    Realtek RTL81885

    and I'm using BackTrack 5

    Can someone help me? Please.
    Thanks.

    When it says monitor mode enabled like in the image try:
    airodump-ng wlan0

    If that works then monitor mode is working, you don't need mon0.

    try running iwconfig to see if wlan0 is still in monitor mode after you have set airmon, some processes may switch it back to managed, you may have to kill the processes with:

    airmon-ng check kill

    this will kill any proceses which might bugger up airodump-ng.

    ye you are right

    i just typed
    airmon-ng
    then
    airmon-ng start wlan0
    i had (monitor mode enabled)
    but I also typed
    iwconfig
    and ....

    I might be VERY wrong but, try - "airmon-ng wlan0 down" then "airodump-ng wlan0" or "airodump-ng mon0".

    your first statement is correct.

    use "ifconfig wlan# up/down" to take the interface up or down this is needed to change the MAC etc

    "airmon-ng start/stop wlan#" is used to start/stop monitor mode, "airmon-ng stop mon0" will kill the added mon0 interface.

    you can also use "iwconfig wlan# mode monitor/managed" this can change the wlan# interface to or from monitor without creating a VAP Mon# interface.

    Airmon-ng wlan# check kill should kill the processes which are switching the card back to monitor.

    Seems your card isnt supported. as first of all the chipset dosn't get detected, and also seems that its not able to interface with your card to begin an Ap/Channel scan.
