    Default Cannont Select a Channel putting wireless card into monitor mode

    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.

    It should be:
    airmon-ng start wifi0 6
    NOT airmon-ng start wifi0 -c 6

    Default re setting channel

    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 ?
