Cyber Weapons Lab, Episode 051

Kali Linux doesn’t work with all wireless network adapters on the market. Aside from chipset compatibility, one needs their adapter to be able to be put into monitor mode as well as perform packet injection. Today, we’ll guide you through the selection process and show you how to test for these features on this episode of Cyber Weapons Lab.

Good wireless cards include:

  13. I am very happy with my RTL8188EUS (WN-722N V3) for 2.4ghz – Cheap adapter with nice capabilities… its also working on nethunter however the drivers need to be compiled and installed both for nethunter and kali linux manuell… Unfortunately there are many installation instruction out there for this chipset, that are resulting in errors… i made my one wich works perfect: https://github.com/trueToastedCode/Linux/blob/master/How%20to%20rtl8188eur%20on%20Kali%20Linux.txt

  14. i am from Bangladesh and all the adapter that showen in description, most of them are unavailable and few that are available are very expensive that is why i unable to afford them, but can but the is a lower cost adaptor with a chip standard of 802.11 n/g/b can you please tell me will it support monitor mode And packed injection, so i don't end up wasting money.

  19. @Null Byte in the console mine is still showing wlan0??

  20. Useful tuto thank you

  21. NISMO JOE says:

    It worked but the "airodump-ng wlan0mon" command was "sudo airodump-ng wlan0" for me. I'm using a rtl8814au

  22. G1 X1 says:

    Hello please tell me which one is the best wifi adapter hacking

  23. thesick says:

    When i execute the command
    airodump-ng wlan0mon
    Kali doesn't detect networks
    can somebody help me?

  24. Hagob Paek says:

    Hello, I'm getting new to hacking and whenever I start airodump on Kali Linux it doesn't show anything. I'm using Kali on a virtual box and I'm able to use monitor mode on my chipset and it appears to be compatible. Do you know what are some things i can do to solve these issues.

  25. Sammy Tice says:

    Hey, if I'm running Kali in a VM, what network setting (currently using Bridged Adapter as that recognized my adapter) do I set it on to use the wifi adapter I have plugged into my laptop? I have internet access on Kali but when I "ifconfig" it gives me an eth0 address, not a wlan.. And if I try to start airmon-ng, it tells me to kill the Network Manager before I continue, but this shuts down my network manager (ad thus internet connection) on Kali. So idk what to do..

  26. Best laptop to start hacking

  27. Frank King says:

    cool video tried all , and it works i must admit, i didn't dare to make last step…

  28. I dont see anything after I've entered the "airodump-ng wlan0mon" command
