WIFOO Revisited – Part 1 – 6GHz Adapter Test

Part 2

Check the status of the adapter/driver

Use airodump-ng to discover networks and their capabilities

airodump-ng -w <output file name>  --output-format csv <interface name>

The recon data will be saved in .csv format. This is useful for documentation purposes.

Put interface in monitor mode option #1:

ifconfig wlanX down
iw dev wlanX set monitor none
ifconfig wlanX up
Add multiple logical monitor mode interfaces option #2:

  sudo iw wlan0 interface add mon0 type monitor
  sudo iw wlan0 interface add mon1 type monitor
  sudo iw wlan0 interface add mon2 type monitor
  sudo iw wlan0 interface add mon3 type monitor
Create monitor mode interface #3:

note: First run airmon-ng check kill

found 2 processes that could cause trouble.
Kill them using 'airmon-ng check kill' before putting
the card in monitor mode, they will interfere by changing channels
and sometimes putting the interface back in managed mode

then run

sudo airmon-ng start wlan1 

Delete multiple logical monitor mode interfaces:

sudo iw mon0 del
sudo iw mon1 del
sudo iw mon2 del
sudo iw mon3 del

 sudo airodump-ng -C 6455 mon0

The -C option allows me to specify the 6GHz frequency

The Intel adapter is 6GHz capable

The 6GHz card is working properly for basic capture/recon functions under airodump-ng and wireshark.

Injection is not supported.
