I am making acquiantance with wireless security and attacks and was told to run some tests with aircrack-ng and wireshark.
So I installed both of them and ran airmon to switch wi-fi card to monitor mode:
sudo airmon-ng start ra0 (this is my DWA-140 usb wi-fi adapter) The wi-fi adapter seems to have restarted after that. Gues that's ok. Still it gave some warnings on processes that might interfere with normal work like
network manager, dhclient and a few more. I tried to stop them, but they seem to restart all the time.
After that I ran wireshark as a superuser, chose the ra0 adapter and tried to sniff the test open network. I have my PC connected to it (via dwa-140) and an HTC phone and some stranger PCs. Wireshark runs on my PC.
The problem is that when I login to
%sitename% with a PC browser, I can see the cookies sent to it in Wireshark. But when I do the same thing with an Opera Mobile browser on my HTC (
Turbo option disabled), there is nothing detected. I know that stranger PCs are also sending data to
%sitename%, but I see nothing from them as well. Actually I see a lot of packets from stranger PCs, but not the ones I need.
I'd like to know what I'm doing wrong. Will be thankful for any advice.
P.S. This runs on Ubuntu 12.04.1
