bit of a general question here, would hope to learn more about exactly what is going on technically.
I'm attempting to test and capture a handshake from my own AP (an older Apple Airport router).
I've used various tools from airgeddon to wifite to fluxion to manual airodump-ng and the weird thing is: I cannot see a single client connect to the AP.
But my laptop and two mobile devices are connected. I've even disabled/enabled WiFi on the mobile device during a fluxion passive listening attack, mdk3 doesn't work, nothing sees any clients.
I've also run the same experiment on a new Airport Extreme AP, and it captures just fine and sees clients.
For this, I'm using an ALFA adapter with the Ralink RT3070 chipset (802.11b/g/n) @ 2.4Ghz.
I'll boot up the Nano which I just got recently next, but just curious as to WHY various tools are unable to see clients, therefore unable to deauth (or even passively listen) to ultimately capture the CAP
