I have read many threads on StackExchange and some other blogs but none helped me. The issue is with
aircrack-ng on Kali Linux. It gives me error No such BSSID available when I run
aireply-ng. I think it is because of not having mon0 when I run
root@kali:~# uname -a Linux kali 4.19.0-kali1-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.19.13-1kali1 (2019-01-03) x86_64 GNU/Linux
I have updated the driver of usb wifi adaptor; RTL8812AU and it is the output of
root@kali:~# iwconfig eth0 no wireless extensions. lo no wireless extensions. wlan0 IEEE 802.11 Mode:Monitor Frequency:2.422 GHz Tx-Power=18 dBm Retry short limit:7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off Power Management:off
I think it needs to show the name of the adapter in the monitor mode, something like
wlanmon0 but it shows only 3 or some other numbers.
root@kali:~# airmon-ng start wlan0 PHY Interface Driver Chipset phy0 wlan0 88XXau Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8812AU 802.11a/b/g/n/ac WLAN Adapter (mac80211 monitor mode already enabled for [phy0]wlan0 on [phy0]3)
I have read on some blogs that it does not really matter if there is no
mon0; but it doesn't work at all and just give me the following error, No such BSSID available.
root@kali:~# aireplay-ng --deauth 100 -a MAC_OF_AP -c MAC_OF_TARGET wlan0 16:56:02 Waiting for beacon frame (BSSID: MAC_OF_AP) on channel 3 16:56:12 No such BSSID available.
P.S. - I have tested it on Windows 10 and Ubuntu 18.10 hosts as well as Kali 2019 and ParrotSec. Both have the same issue.
