Forum Thread: Kali Network Monitor Mode Not Working

Hi, This is my first post in this Site and please move this post if this doesn't belong here.

So, I've set up my Kali in Oracle VM and since months I've had this problem. I can seem to turn on Monitor mode in my Network Adapter. I have Ralink RT3290 802.11bgn Wifi Adapter, linked to Kali in VM with a Bridged Adapter.

Kali shows my Wifi Adapter as eth0. When ever I try to turn on Monitor mode, lets say I start up Airmon-ng, this what I get.

*root@nOObLorD:~# airmon-ng start eth0
ls: cannot access /sys/class/ieee80211/: No such file or directory

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 kill (some of) them!

PID Name
631 NetworkManager
1101 wpa_supplicant
2151 dhclient

PHY Interface Driver Chipset*

Or with this,

*root@nOObLorD:~# iwconfig eth0 mode monitor
Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06) :
SET failed on device eth0 ; Operation not supported.*

Please help and ask if anything else is needed to be done.
