NAME

       airmon-ng - POSIX sh script designed to turn wireless cards into monitor mode.

SYNOPSIS

       airmon-ng <start|stop> <interface> [channel] airmon-ng <check> [kill]

DESCRIPTION

       airmon-ng  This  script  can be used to enable monitor mode on wireless interfaces. It may
       also be used to go back from monitor mode to managed mode. Entering the airmon-ng  command
       without  parameters  will show the interfaces status.  It can also list/kill programs that
       can interfere with the wireless card operation.

OPTIONAL PARAMETERS

       start <interface> [channel]
              Enable monitor mode on an interface (and specify a channel). Note: Madwifi-ng is  a
              special  case,  'start'  has  to  be  used  on  wifi  interfaces  and 'stop' on ath
              interfaces.

       stop <interface>
              Disable monitor mode and go back to managed mode (except for  madwifi-ng  where  it
              kills the ath VAP).

       check [kill]
              List  all  possible programs that could interfere with the wireless card. If 'kill'
              is specified, it will try to kill all of them.

       --verbose
              This flag must precede start/stop/check and can be combined with  other  parameters
              or  used alone.  This flag will increase the verbosity to provide additional useful
              information which may not be needed for normal operation.

       --debug
              This flag must precede start/stop/check and can be combined with  other  parameters
              or  used  alone.  This flag will increase the verbosity to debug level to assist in
              troubleshooting errors in airmon-ng. Use this flag when opening a bug, but only use
              --verbose when requesting support in irc.

       --elite
              WARNING:  DO NOT USE: This flag must precede start or stop and will prevent airmon-
              ng from removing interfaces.  WARNING: Use of this flag will immediately disqualify
              receiving any support from the aircrack-ng team, due to the fact that this behavior
              is known to be broken. WARNING!
