How do I understand the command airdump-ng is looking only for access points? By default airodump-ng wlan0 will listen for any 802.11 devices beacons (master and managed mode) at 2.4 GHz. So, you know it is not only capturing AP beacons, your only alternative is to filter clients later using something like Wireshark if this is an issue. It is important to ...

Not all attacks are affecting to all Access Points and to all ...

And if all that does not work try "rfkill unblock all", this will unblock your adapter if it was being blocked by the firmware as it is not a very famous adapter and may not have the proper drivers ...

Airdump-ng is for capturing 802.11 frames, so you use this tool exclusively for wireless networks. Wireshark and TCPdump are similar but Wireshark is more complex, also has a GUI. E.g. you can set many filters and perform more advanced analysis. TCPdump is more lightweight. Which one is best to use is a broad question and is up to you, depending on what ...

This is a bug existing in airodump-ng 1.2 rc4 (Released 14 Feb 2016) to airodump-ng 1.2 (Released 15 Apr 2018). But in 18 Apr 2018, the GitHub user Mister-X fixed the problem. See the commit. In src/airodump-ng.c with the bug, it will use input_thread() to create a thread regardless of whether the airodump-ng process running in the foreground or ...
