Both units come with a removable 5dBi antenna, featuring a standard RP-SMA connector, which is nice since it will accommodate different antenna types should the included omni-directional antenna not suit your needs. OPN means that the AP is using no encryption and is open.

The second column shows AP power in dB. This will be blank if no authentication is being used OPN. Even old versions of Kali Linux have baked-in drivers for both of these adapters and many others. After we run the command airmon-ng start wlan1we are warned that there are some processes that can hinder the operation of the Aircrack tools in conjunction with our newly created monitor mode interface. The name of wlan1mon is a visual cue that the wlan1 interface is now up and in monitor mode.
The CH column tells us on which channel an AP is currently operating. No permanent harm done.

An Oali that registers as dB might be right next to us, whereas an AP that shows dB may be across the street in another building. PSK indicates that a pre-shared key is being used. After plugging in your adapter, running the command airmon-ng will show us all of the wireless adapters that are installed and recognized by the Aircrack suite, which is a popular suite of Wi-Fi pen-testing tools. OPN means that the AP is using no encryption and is open.

By specifying the name of the adapter, we can see that this is indeed an MGT indicates that a managed form of authentication is being used, which can include the use alf This is because we are searching for all APs and all clients on all wireless channels. Remember that monitor mode is more powerful than promiscuous mode, since it allows us to sniff all aaus036h traffic without having to be connected to an AP or ad-hoc network.
This command can take several awuus036h and can perform tons of useful functions, including packet capture to a file, helping us capture WPA2-PSK handshakes, identifying clients connected to a specific AP, and more. This means that we can quickly identify all APs, and even clients, in range.
Adapter installation is easy, simply plug and play. There are other methods of doing this, but using the airmon-ng command to perform this action ensures that the Aircrack suite of tools will play nice with our new monitor interface.
This is typically the most common type of authentication used by most people. This output will be the basis for almost everything we do with wireless pen-testing, as it provides very useful information.

We can use the iwconfig command to get greater detail alga each interface by passing the interface name to it as a parameter. While this command is running, airodump-ng is scanning all 2.

If you are forced to run this, rebooting is the quickest way to get those processes back up and running again. APs closest to us will have higher numbers, and APs that are further away will have lower numbers. Adapter Installation and Monitor Mode Adapter installation is easy, simply plug and play. Here, you can see that Kali recognizes two wireless adapters in my Lenovo Alfaa — the built-in Intel adapter, as well as the Alfa adapter.
If you encounter issues later, then running the airmon-ng check kill command may be required, though running that command will kill several processes. Also important is that the onboard adapter is identified as wlan0and the Alfa adapter is identified as wlan1. Both units come with a removable 5dBi antenna, featuring a standard RP-SMA connector, which is nice since it will accommodate different antenna types should the included omni-directional antenna not suit your needs.
This adapter has been a long-time favorite of Kali users given its small size, simple setup drivers are already built in, just plug and goexcellent range, and cheap price.
Running iwconfig with no parameters will show us all of our network interfaces.
