Forum Thread: Does mdk3/Aireplay Deauth Your Own Machine?

I am running kali through vm (connected with alfa card), I am testing out dos attack with mdk3 and aireplay. I tested both and it seems devices such as my phone did get kicked off the network. but my main computer hosting the vm wasn't affected at all, I am still connected to the ap and have internet access. My connection even turns out to be faster than before, does this mean that the dos is to all other client on the network excluding my main machine?

I follow this tut for mdk3: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=383m9nGywnw
I used aireplay-ng -0 0 -b mon0 to deauth all client.
Why isn't my machine kicked off the network?How can I check if all other device are kicked off as well?
