    In virtual machine environments, drivers has a tendency to switch itself off, often resulting in errors such as:

    "rtl8187: wireless radio switch turned off", "ioctl(SIOCSIFFLAGS) failed: Unknown error 132" and "rtl8187 - [phy0]SIOCSIFFLAGS: Unknown error 132"

    To solve I created a simple script which you can download and use:
    Select All
    sudo dmesg |tail -20 sleep 5
    Note that if you download the attachment script that you might need to set permissions as 755 by chmod before you can run it as a script. E.g:
    Select All
    sudo chmod 755 '/root/Desktop/Aircrack-ng-SCRIPTS/'
