airmon-ng - POSIX sh script designed to turn wireless cards into monitor mode.
airmon-ng <start|stop> <interface> [channel] airmon-ng <check> [kill]
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.
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. start <interface> [frequency] Enable monitor mode on an interface (and specify a frequency in MHz). 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!
