My laptop is in monitoring mode. I need to get the details of a client that makes probes and not include other bssid and their station.

I run sudo airodump-ng -w s3 --bssid 74:de:2b:45:ed:d4 mon0 The MAC is my wlan0, but it won't show any client IPs.

If run the command sudo airodump-ng -w s3 mon0 the s3.csv file shows the all IPs not associated to any of the AP. My requirement is to get the client that probes my mon0.

  • are you using two wifi cards? im pretty sure you cannot broadcast AND scan on one card?

You should start by setting up your WIFI card to monitor mode on the right channel (it will help airodump-ng find the packets):

airmon-ng start <interface> <AP channel>

After that, the command that you are using is indeed the correct one. I mean, you are using the AP MAC address, right? You can use the -a parameter, it will display only associated clients.

airodump-ng -c <AP channel> -a --bssid <AP MAC> -w <capture_file> <interface>
