AIRMON-NG(8)		    System Manager's Manual		  AIRMON-NG(8)

NAME
       airmon-ng  - POSIX sh script designed to	turn wireless cards into moni-
       tor mode.

SYNOPSIS
       airmon-ng <start|stop> <interface> [channel] airmon-ng <check> [kill]

DESCRIPTION
       airmon-ng This script can be used to enable monitor  mode  on  wireless
       interfaces. It may also be used to go back from monitor mode to managed
       mode. Entering the airmon-ng command without parameters will  show  the
       interfaces  status.   It	can also list/kill programs that can interfere
       with the	wireless card operation.

OPTIONAL PARAMETERS
       start _interface_ [channel]
	      Enable monitor mode on an	interface  (and	 specify  a  channel).
	      Note:  Madwifi-ng	 is  a special case, 'start' has to be used on
	      wifi interfaces and 'stop' on ath	interfaces.

       stop _interface_
	      Disable monitor mode and go back to  managed  mode  (except  for
	      madwifi-ng where it kills	the ath	VAP).

       check [kill]
	      List  all	 possible programs that	could interfere	with the wire-
	      less card. If 'kill' is specified, it will try to	 kill  all  of
	      them.

       --verbose
	      This flag	must precede start/stop/check and can be combined with
	      with other parameters or used alone.  This  flag	will  increase
	      the verbosity to provide additional useful information which may
	      not be needed for	normal operation.

       --debug
	      This flag	must precede start/stop/check and can be combined with
	      with  other  parameters  or used alone.  This flag will increase
	      the verbosity to debug level to assist in	troubleshooting	errors
	      in  airmon-ng.  Use  this	 flag when opening a bug, but only use
	      --verbose	when requesting	support	in irc.

       --elite
	      WARNING: DO NOT USE: This	flag must precede start	 or  stop  and
	      will  prevent  airmon-ng from removing interfaces.  WARNING: Use
	      of this flag will	immediately disqualify receiving  any  support
	      from the aircrack-ng team, due to	the fact that this behavior is
	      known to be broken. WARNING!
