    Hello, I was setting up my adapter to run airodump-ng, but then this happened. This is the first time I am experiencing this issue.

    [email protected]:~# ifconfig wlan0 down

    [email protected]:~# iwconfig wlan0 mode monitor

    Error for wireless request “Set Mode” (8B06) :

    SET failed on device wlan0 ; Operation not permitted.

    I couldn’t find any solutions online

    I would greatly appreciate help on this. I also ran through this problem too:

    [email protected]:~# ifconfig wlan0 up

    SIOCSIFFLAGS: Operation not possible due to RF-kill

    Hi!
    Can you tell me the exact model of your adapter?(brand and model)
    Is this the first time that you try it?

    Thanks!

    My adapter is Alfa AWUS036ACH. I have ran this multiple times with no issues at all. For more context… i hadn’t tried packet sniffing in a while because I was learning the MITM attack. During learning the attack I did connect the adapter for the first time to a wireless network (which was mine). Maybe connecting it for the first time messed something up? Just trying to give as much info as possible, maybe it’s useful.

    Hi!
    Can you try to use:

    ifconfig wlan0 down
    airmon-ng check kill
    iwconfig wlan0 mode monitor
    ifconfig wlan0 up

    Let me know how it goes!

    Hello,

    I am getting the same response. I also tried deleting the drivers and installing them back, still the same bug. I also went back to an older snapshot and deleted the usb from VB and put it back on. None of those worked.

    Hi!
    Are you using the latest custom kali image provided by Zaid?

    Let me know.

    [email protected]:~# ifconfig wlan0 down

    [email protected]:~# airmon-ng check kill

    Killing these processes:

    PID Name

    1508 wpa_supplicant

    [email protected]:~# iwconfig wlan0 mode monitor

    Error for wireless request “Set Mode” (8B06) :

    [email protected]:~# ifconfig wlan0 up

    I ended up installing a fresh install of kali instead of the custom one from Zaid, everything works good.

    Hi!
    Cool you got it, the only disadvantage is that some of the attacks like https downgrading, installing mana and maybe installing veil will not be possible in official kali release, but ry them out first.

    Why wont they work? Is it because of legal purposes?

    Hi!
    No, for different reasons. Https downgrade will need custom hstshijack caplet and bettercap 2.23 but even if they are installed in custom kali many students still having issues. Mana is not supported any more by official kali, veil has many incompatibility issues.

    Greetings!
