Hello all

I am a beginner to Kali Linux and I am trying to hack my WiFi using airmon-ng. I followed a few tutorials and videos and they said to type first check if I have a WiFi card that supports monitoring, mine does. I typed "airmon-ng" in the terminal and then typed "airmon-ng start wlan0". It then stated that monitoring is enabled for wlan0mon. Then I typed "airodump-ng wlan0mon" as suggested in the tutorial and it did show all the labels like  BSSID and PWR but the contents were completely blank. I thought it was still detecting for WiFi signals so I let it search for over an hour but still no luck. I am currently in my school, I will post screenshots as soon as possible.

My opinion is that you must learn the tools fully before using them.  Read all their documents and their source code.  Be careful not to attack your neighbor's WiFi network because of a stupid and avoidable mistake.

I will second Dodolso.

 

Go read up on the tool, follow some tutorials - plenty out there. Its been a while since I used airmon, but from what I remember it was a pretty straight forward tool. Shouldn't be too bad to figure out. Of course only ever use it on your own personal network. Its illegal to try and break into something you don't own.

I have learnt the basics so I thought WiFi hacking ought to be good to try (my own network of course). The tutorials I've seen don't seem to work but, this is my problem: http://prntscr.com/ehk00y

In your initial post you stated you did:

airodump-ng wlan0mon

If that is indeed what you are using, and not a typo. Do this instead:

airodump-ng wlan0

+BC advisor Yes wlan0mon is exactly what I'm using, I even tried wlan0 but it says that no network as such exists.

Hi FarmerButch

 

Which exact version of Kali are you using?

Hi FarmerButch

 

It is a little bit of a concern to me that you are not sure what version you are using, but it looks like 2.0 or thereabouts.

 

You seem familiar with Terminal, so you can find out by typing and entering

cat /etc/*release*

and reporting the output back here.

 

Is this the first Linux you have used? If so, I would strongly recommend trying another first and become acquainted with it, before trying Kali.

 

If not, or if you wish to persist, you may find the following video of benefit to you.

 

 

 

 

I do not pretend to be an expert in Kali, I have only used it on LiveUSB so far, so if you need further help, I will step back and watch with interest.

 

Cheers

+wizardfromoz Thank you for the video but it did not work. However, I did try the command you told me to find my version of kali linux and this is what it showed: http://prntscr.com/eik3sh

I understand.

 

For the benefit of The Viewers, that information is as follows:

I will have to leave it here, as I do not have any better ideas. Thanks for that info, FarmerButch - I will defer to more experienced Kali users.

 

Good luck

Are you running kali in a virtual machine, by any chance? Or is this installed on hardware, or running on a bootable CD/DVD/USB?
