Airodump-ng is included in the aircrack-ng package and is used for packet capturing of raw 802.11 frames. It is ideal for collecting WEP IVs for use with aircrack-ng. If you have a GPS receiver connected to the computer, airodump-ng can log the coordinates of the discovered access points.
Monitor all wireless networks, frequency hopping between all wireless channels.
Sniff on channel 6 (-c 6) via monitor mode interface wlan0mon and save the capture to a file (-w /root/chan6).
airodump-ng -c 6 -w /root/chan6 wlan0mon
Filter for access points by a specific manufacturer, specifying the OUI and mask (-d FC:15:B4:00:00:00 -m FF:FF:FF:00:00:00).
airodump-ng -d FC:15:B4:00:00:00 -m FF:FF:FF:00:00:00 wlan0mon
- --write <prefix>
- Dump file prefix
- same as --write
- -f <msecs>
- Time in ms between hopping channels
- -r <file>
- Read packets from that file
- Uses these frequencies in MHz to hop
By default, airodump-ng hop on 2.4GHz channels.
