Forum Thread: Airdump-Ng Can't Find Any Network in Monitor Mode

I know quiet well linux and decide to start with kali linux few weeks ago. So i installed it on my usb key and boot in persistence mode with it. Everything worked as i was expecting, wifi connection... But i wanted to try aircrack-ng so i began with scaning networks but it doesn't seems to work :

root@kali:~# airmon-ng

PHY Interface Driver Chipset

phy0 wlan0 ath10k_pci Qualcomm Atheros QCA6174 802.11ac Wireless Network Adapter (rev 32)

root@kali:~# airmon-ng start wlan0

Found 3 processes that could cause trouble.
If airodump-ng, aireplay-ng or airtun-ng stops working after
a short period of time, you may want to run 'airmon-ng check kill'

root@kali:~# airmon-ng check kill

As you can see airodump-ng didn't catch anything whereas monitor mode is activated.

I use my native wifi card so is it possible it is not compatible with aircrack ?
See what does return aireplay :

root@kali:~# aireplay-ng --test wlan0mon

Do you know if i have to buy a wifi usb or is it something else ?
Thanks for you help in advance

This wifi dongle seems nice and not expensive. In addition i was looking for a wifi dongle compatible with my raspberry and it is. Thank you for your quick answer.

Yep works like a charm with Pi too! No biggie.
