Yes, iw dev shows that it actuallly enters monitor mode. But airmon-ng stop does not return to managed. Also, with the latest build from github, I replaced the airmon-ng script with the one from 1.6 and all works fine.

So, it's not related to the Kali version, but only the airmon-ng version. Something changed between 1.6 and now.

One thing to note, the adapter is correctly in monitor mode, and capture works just fine, regardless of the name of the interface.

If other cards are working, then there is more chance it is a bug in the driver. Is there anything in dmesg?

You mention you don't have network manager running. Did you kill them?

You likely want to try different revisions of aircrack-ng between 1.6 and that revision (I'm assuming it is this specific revision - 91820bc). You likely want to check the ones that changed airmon-ng, starting from b98ceff on March 20th, which is the first change after 1.6.

I just checked with my working setup and upgraded aircrack-ng via apt to 1:1.6+git20210130.91820bc-1, and the problem now exists. It seems to be something between 1.6-4 and 1.6+git20210130.91820bc-1 that introduced the problem/bug.

I have no network managers running, and other cards work as expected. aircrack-ng 1:1.6-4 works just fine on kali 2020.3 with kernel 5.9.0-kali2-amd64. This is the last known working setup for me. Kali 2020.4 and later have the problem.

1. What kernel version?
2. What aircrack-ng version?
3. Have you killed network managers prior to putting the card in monitor mode?

Look in dmesg, there might be clues as what is going on.

My alfa awus036h with the rtl8187 chipset goes into monitor mode but it is not renamed wlan0mon. Also airmon-ng stop says monitor mode disabled but it remains in monitor mode.

The adapter works fine with an old version in a VM, so I have ruled out a defective adapter. The problem started showing up in more recent versions. How can I begin to troubleshoot this?
