I've been trying to crack wifi wpa2 handshake using airodump-ng and aireplay-ng.

I'm using alfa awus-036acs adapter.

sudo airodump-ng wlan0
sudo airodump-ng --bssid  MAC ADDR of AP --channel 1 -w capture  wlan0

and (tried both)

sudo aireplay-ng --deauth 0 -a MAC ADDR OF AP  wlan0

or

sudo aireplay-ng --deauth 1111 -a MAC ADDR OF AP -c MAC ADDR OF CLIENT wlan0

and every time it shows

Waiting for beacon frame (BSSID: MAC ADDR) on channel 1 no such BSSID available.

The pwr is 80 so shouldn't be a problem. I've tried this on many networks, but always the output is the same as above.

I am using kali in VMware fusion on Mac.

Also tried:

airmon-ng check kill

and

ifconfig wlan0 down

before running aireplay-ng

What is causing this to show that there is no BSSID available? When I type -D it throws:

17:14:52  Sending 64 directed DeAuth (code 7). STMAC: 
[MAC ADDR] [ 0|61 ACKs]
 
17:14:52  Sending 64 directed DeAuth (code 7). STMAC:
[MAC ADDR] [ 0|60 ACKs]
 
17:14:53  Sending 64 directed DeAuth (code 7). STMAC:
[MAC ADDR] [ 0|64 ACKs]
