 Quite often, the standard scripts on a linux distribution will setup ath0 and or additional athX interfaces. ​ These must all be removed first per the instructions above. ​ Another problem is that the script set fields such as essid, nickname and encryptions. ​ Be sure these are all cleared. Quite often, the standard scripts on a linux distribution will setup ath0 and or additional athX interfaces. ​ These must all be removed first per the instructions above. ​ Another problem is that the script set fields such as essid, nickname and encryptions. ​ Be sure these are all cleared.

 +  You are trying to stop a device that isn't in monitor mode.
 +  Doing so is a terrible idea, if you really want to do it then you
 +  need to type 'iw wlan2mon del' yourself since it is a terrible idea.
 +  Most likely you want to remove an interface called wlan[0-9]mon
 +  If you feel you have reached this warning in error,
 +  please report it.
 +
 +It most likely mean the interface mode was changed from monitor to managed mode by a network manager. In this case, when stopping monitor mode, this is not a problem.
 +
 +==== My interface was put in monitor mode but tools says it is not ====
 +
 +It usually means the interface was put in monitor mode prior to killing network managers. And the network manager put the card back in managed mode.
 +
 +Refer to the documentation above to kill network managers and put it back into monitor mode.
