When I was testing penetration testing on my router using kali linux, I followed all the steps from this link. In the step where you have to enter the router's bssid and client's bssid in aireplay-ng command I'm getting the following command aireplay-ng -0 2 -a 10:FE:ED:2E:5E:20 -c 08:3E:8E:CC:14:A7 mon7

09:00:33 Waiting for beacon frame (BSSID: 10:FE:ED:2E:5E:20) on channel -1 
09:00:33 Couldn't determine current channel for mon7, you should either force the operation with --ignore-negative-one or apply a kernel patch 
Please specify an ESSID (-e) the channel is -1. 

But the channel I was capturing was some other channel. I'm getting this every time I try. Please help with this -1 channel and how to fix this


From the kali forum: run it with --ignore-negative-one or --ig
