    I seem to have stumbled on a common airodump-ng bug that is "fixed channel mon0 : -1"
    I had no problems at first and then suddenly i couldn't fake authenticate to any AP due to mon0 using channel -1.

    it seems to be limited to feeding bottle, the issue is not present in inflator n'or minidwep.
    -i've tried re-creating my live usb key. it didn't work.
    -problem is occurring on more than one wifi adapter inlcuding (8187L, 8187B, and atheros chipsets)

    After searching for a fix i found 2 relevant posts:

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1598930

    I've also found a patch that could solve the problem:

    (tested with rtl8187, ath5k, zd1211rw, iwl3945, rt73usb, rt2800usb)

    (note: i haven't tried a fix yet, I will update as soon as i do.)

    it's strange because everything was working fine at first. the error showed up out of nowhere.

    Good news, I have found a temporary fix. This has been TESTED AND WORKS well.

    Step 1
    Open feeding bottle > enable monitor mode > scan network > choose target AP > Advanced Attack.

    Step 2
    Once you start capturing packets using airoplay-ng do the following:
    • Check to see what "card interface" your using (e.g: wlan0)
    • Now since mon0 is using channel -1 we cannot attack any network with it since no networks use channel -1

    Step 3
    Open Root Shell and type the following code (by the order given) - [credits to Basher101 for the fix]

    Code:
    Select All
    airmon-ng stop wlan0 ifconfig wlan0 down iwconfig wlan0 mode managed ifconfig wlan0 up iwconfig wlan0 channel (your channel here) ifconfig wlan0 down iwconfig wlan0 mode monitor ifconfig wlan0 up
    Step 4
    Go to your feeding bottle and before you RUN an attack (ex: Force auth (-1) or ARP Replay (-3))

    Step 5
    Go to the "attack command" and change "mon0" to "wlan0"
    Since wlan0 is the same adapter mon0 is on but with the channel you picked.

    I suggest that anyone make a script file (.sh) out of this, add it to the ISO and run it when needed, or at least a text document and burn it into the ISO. Remember you can use copy and paste in Xiaopan (ctrl+c and ctrl+f) so don't go typing all those commands by hand.
