    Default Automatic Network Population

    I'm having difficulty. I just installed BT5r2.

    I did:

    airmon-ng start wlan0
    airodump-ng wlan0

    now, the problem is, they scans do not automatically update. I would have to do it manually by either clicking REFRESH in Wicd Network Manager, or typing "iwlist wlan0 scan" in terminal.

    Does anyone know how to fix this?

    I have successfully gotten my router's WEP password 2 times by mass clicking the refresh button but it doesn't work well, and doesn't work at all for WPA as far as I know.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    You'd want to do airodump-ng mon0.

    mon0 doesn't work. I read that if it doesn't make a mon0 then use wlan0 (which is still in monitor mode)


    I made a batch file that fixed by problem but probably uses a lot of cpu usage.


    File: a.bat

    Text:

    for (( n = 1; n < 5000; n++ )); do
    iwlist wlan0 scan
    done



    This has fixed my problem and it refreshes all the wireless AP's and computers. I would still like to know how to fix my issue.
