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
	      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
	      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	--ver-
	      bose 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!
