Install the following via Homebrew (brew):
Install the following via pkg:
wget http://download.aircrack-ng.org/aircrack-ng-1.2.tar.gz tar -zxvf aircrack-ng-1.2.tar.gz cd aircrack-ng-1.2 autoreconf -i ./configure --with-experimental make make install
Commands are exactly the same as Linux but instead of make, use gmake (with CC=gcc5 CXX=g++5 or any other installed gcc version).
Note: Compilation parameters can also be used with the sources from our git repository.
git clone https://github.com/aircrack-ng/aircrack-ng cd aircrack-ng autoreconf -i ./configure --with-experimental make make install
When configuring, the following flags can be used and combined to adjust the suite to your choosing:
After you do “make install” then try to use any of the Aircrack-ng suite commands, you get the error message “command not found” or similar. Your system will look for the Aircrack-ng commands in the directories defined by the PATH command.
Normally, the Aircrack-ng suite programs and man pages are placed in:
/usr/local/bin /usr/local/sbin /usr/local/man
On your system, to determine which directories have the Aircrack-ng programs enter the following. If using “locate” be sure to first run “updatedb”.
locate aircrack-ng locate airmon-ng
find / -name aircrack-ng find / -name airmon-ng
Once you know the directories (exclude the source directories) then determine which directories are in your PATH. To see which directories are included in PATH on your particular system enter:
It should show something like:
At this point compare the actual locations with the directories in your PATH. If the directories are missing from your PATH then you have a few options:

Open your package manager and install 'Aircrack-ng' package. Be sure to check that the version offered is up-to-date – it often isn't.
On OSX, install it is via Macports. Simply do “sudo port install aircrack-ng”.
The Windows version of the Aircrack-ng suite does not have an install program. You must manually install (unzipping archive) the software.
Here are the steps to follow for Windows:
Prior to using the software, make sure to install the drivers for your particular wireless card. See this link for the instructions.
To now use the Aircrack-ng suite, start Windows Explorer and double click on Aircrack-ng GUI.exe inside “bin” subdirectory. The GUI requires .NET version 4.6.1 to run.
Alternatively, open a command prompt (Start menu → Execute → cmd.exe) and change to the “C:\aircrack-ng-1.2-win\bin” directory and execute the individual commands.
