Module 5 Realtek rtl8812au monitor mode

Unread post by muddy » Wed Jun 27, 2018 4:21 am

Has anyone found a way to make the Module 5 WiFi adapter go into monitor mode? And are you able to do packet injection with it? I know Hardkernel doesn't support Kali Linux, but I know many of you have dabbled with the Kali C2 distro.

iw phy0 info
reports that monitor mode IS supported... I just can't get it into it even with the specific rtl8812au package pushed out by offensive security. Had someone there help me with a rebuild to correct for cross linking - still no go.
I do see something interesting - "iw dev wlan0 interface add mon0 type monitor" executes without complaint, and airmon-ng shows it there as an unknown device with ??????.
Further, airodump-ng displays a screen - unfortunately it doesn't see traffic. Tried this with NetworkManager stopped, and started. Ran the Check Kill etc.
Also tried ifconfig down, iwconfig wlan0 mode monitor - it complained....and stopped.

I note that no matter what I do (edit the NetworkManager.conf etc.) iwconfig reports it as "Managed"

Anybody have any success and/or suggestions?
