 An additional feature is the ability to test connectivity to [[airserv-ng]]. ​ Once the basic connectivity test is completed then it proceeds with the standard injection tests via the wireless card linked to airserv-ng. An additional feature is the ability to test connectivity to [[airserv-ng]]. ​ Once the basic connectivity test is completed then it proceeds with the standard injection tests via the wireless card linked to airserv-ng.

 ===== Usage Troubleshooting ===== ===== Usage Troubleshooting =====
  
-Make sure the card(s) are on the same channel as your AP. 
  
-Make sure your cards are not channel hopping.+==== General ==== 
 + 
 +  * Make sure you use the correct interface name.  For mac80211 drivers, it is typically "​mon0"​. ​ For madwifi-ng, it is typically "​ath0"​. ​ As well, ensure you don't have multiple monitor interfaces created meaning "​mon0",​ "​mon1",​ etc. is bad and the extra interfaces need to be destroyed. 
 + 
 +  * Make sure the card(s) are on the same channel as your AP and locked on this channel. ​ When putting your card into monitor mode, be sure to specify the channel via airmon-ng. ​ You can use iwconfig to confirm which channel your card is currently on.  The injection test will fail if your card and access point are on different channels. 
 + 
 +  * Make sure your card is not channel hopping. ​ A very common mistake is to have airodump-ng running in channel hopping mode.  If you use airodump-ng,​ be sure to use the "-c <​channel>"​ option. ​ Additionally,​ ensure all network managers and similar are killed off. 
 + 
 +==== "​Network is down" error message ==== 
 + 
 +If you get error messages similar to the following for Atheros-based cards and the madwifi-ng driver: 
 + 
 +   ​aireplay-ng -9 -e teddy -a 00:​14:​6C:​7E:​40:​80 -B ath0 
 +   ​Interface ath0 -> driver: Madwifi-NG 
 +   ​12:​36:​30 ​ ath0 channel: 10 
 +   ​12:​36:​30 ​ Trying broadcast probe requests... 
 +   write failed: Network is down 
 +   ​wi_write():​ Network is down 
 + 
 +Remove the "​-B"​ bitrate option from the request. ​ There is an underlying problem with the madwifi-ng driver concerning changing bitrates on the fly.  Simply put, you cannot currently change bitrates on the fly.  A request has been made to the madwifi-ng developers to fix this.  Until this is done, you cannot use the "​-B"​ option with madwifi-ng drivers. 
 + 
 + 
 +==== Airodump-ng shows APs but they don't respond ==== 
 + 
 +The injection test uses broadcast probe requests. ​ Not all APs respond to broadcast probe requests. ​ So the injection test may fail because the APs are ignoring the broadcast packets. ​ As well, you quite often can receive packets from APs further away then your card can transmit to. So the injection test may fail because your card cannot transmit far enough for the AP to receive them. 
 + 
 +In both cases, try another channel with multiple APs.  Or try the specific SSID test described above.
