description

airmon-ng is 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 list/kill programs that can interfere with the wireless card and set the right sources in /etc/kismet/kismet.conf too.

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.
