In this article, we will show you how to enable and disable monitor mode in Kali Linux. Monitor mode is a special mode that allows you to monitor all the traffic that is going on in your network. This can be very useful if you are trying to troubleshoot a network issue or if you are trying to find out what is causing a problem in your network. Monitor mode is also very useful for security purposes, as it can help you to see what is happening on your network and to identify any potential security threats.
In order to enable monitor mode in Kali Linux, you will need to use the airmon-ng tool. This tool is included in the aircrack-ng suite of tools and is very easy to use. To start, you will need to open a terminal window and change into the directory where the airmon-ng tool is located. In most cases, this will be in the /usr/sbin directory. Once you are in the correct directory, you can simply type ‘airmon-ng’ and press Enter. This will bring up a list of all the wireless interfaces on your system. Find the interface that you want to enable monitor mode on and note the name of the interface. In this example, we will be using the wlan0 interface.
Once you have the name of the interface, you can type ‘airmon-ng start wlan0’ and press Enter. This will enable monitor mode on the wlan0 interface. You can then use the ‘iwconfig’ command to verify that the interface is in monitor mode. If everything is working correctly, you should see the ‘Mode: Monitor’ line in the output of the ‘iwconfig’ command.
If you need to disable monitor mode, you can use the ‘airmon-ng stop wlan0’ command. This will disable monitor mode on the wlan0 interface. You can then use the ‘iwconfig’ command to verify that the interface is no longer in monitor mode. In most cases, you will want to disable monitor mode when you are finished using it, as it can consume a lot of resources on your system.
