You can always have "dmesg | tail -f" running in a console on the side, it may catch something before the system freezes

Seems the 32 bit is rock solid - should have done it earlier.

Thanks for the suggestions. If it happens I will try get output in the instances it doesn't require a hard reset.

Thanks again.

As for any hardware issue, is there anything in dmesg? Clear it before plugging, then give us the output after the issue arise.

32bit may help. Make sure your system is up to date as well (and if there is a kernel update, reboot first).

First off - thanks for the quick reply.

There are a few scenarios:

1) after running airmon-ng start wlan1 (post check kill) the terminal freezes and nothing happens
- iwconfig on another terminal also produces nothing.

Sometimes if I then disconnect the Alfa, the terminal unlocks and I can try again when reconnecting
The Alfa - either three things happens now

a) the OS freezes and nothing but a reboot (hard power reset) works
b) airmon-ng does the same (wash rinse repeat)
c) it starts monitor mode

Then, if I get past that scenario 2
airodump-ng shows nothing but the first load screens and then same as 'a' and 'b' in scenario 1
Also, sometimes the terminal output shows nothing but accepts commands

Once and only once it got to show the actual monitoring
Randomly later the OS hung

I have checked the partition size (28gb off of the 32gb class 10 sd card)
I have checked CPU temp (37c), memory usage is low as well.

I don't see blinking red lights or anything indicating low power.

I have just reflashed to the 32bit version to see if that makes any difference.

Also a powered USB hub arrives tomorrow, but as the card is meant to be Pi certified I really hope
I don't need it - makes portability hard.

Anything I can try/test to see why it is hanging? 64bit OS or power or something else?

What do you see that makes you come to the conclusion that it "doesn't work".

When it doesn't, what does the output look like?

Would the 32 bit version be more stable?

I tried to use the AWUS036NHA and kali on the pi keeps freezing.

Did the airmon-ng check kill

Sometimes the airmon-ng start wlan1 works, sometimes not

Tried removing the atheros drivers and reinstalling - same thing.

Rebuilt the image, still the same

Upgraded/updated, same thing

I tried a short range TPLink TL-WN823N and that works fine - injection and all, just too short range

Any ideas?

It's been more than a year since the last release, and this one brings a ton of improvements.

The most noticeable change are the rate display in Airodump-ng. Previously, it went up to 54Mbit. Now, it takes into account the complexity of 802.11n/ac and calculates the maximum rate that can be achieved on the AP. Expect 802.11ax rates in the next release. We brought basic UTF-8 support for ESSID and if you ever come across WPA3 or OWE, this will be displayed correctly as well. Airodump-ng has had the ability to read PCAP files for quite some time, which can be handy to generate one of the CSV/netxml or other output formats available. However, signal levels were not displayed; this has now been fixed. A new option has been added to read the files in realtime, instead of reading all at once.

Huge improvements have been done under the hood as well. Code has been cleaned up, deduplicated (Pull Request 2010), reorganized (Pull Request 2032), which lead to a lot of fixes.

This reorganization also updated the build system, which now requires automake 1.14+. This was a problem on CentOS 7, but we provide a script to install these requirements from source to solve the issue; although automake 1.14 (and other dependencies) have been released 6+ years ago, CentOS is the only distribution that doesn't have it, and it was decided to provide a script to install the requirements was a small price to pay to improve and simplify the build system.

Other tools received fixes as well:

  • Along with a few fixes, Airmon-ng now handles more network managers, and persistent ones; no need to run airmon-ng check kill a few times for the network managers that keep restarting.
  • Airdecap-ng can now decrypt both sides of the conversation when WDS is in use.
  • As usual, we updated WPE patches for freeradius and HostAPd.
  • Python 2 is dead as of January 1st, and now all our scripts support Python 3. If you are still running Python 2, don't worry, they are still backward compatible.
  • Aircrack-ng contains fixes for a few crashes and other regressions, as well as improved CPU detection in some cases (-u option).

We have been working on our infrastructure and have a buildbot server with quite a few systems. If you head up to our buildbot landing page, you can see the extent of the build system: 14 systems to test build on top of AppVeyor, TravisCI, and Coverity Scan, plus one to automatically package it and upload packages to It gets triggered every time we push code to our GitHub repository and you can see the details of each build for each commit on GitHub. We have an earlier blog post where you can find some details of our CI/CD.
We are currently working on bringing Mac infrastructure as well.

We keep working on our automated tests, and a few have been added; this release also brings integration tests (16 for now) to automatically test different features of airodump-ng, aireplay-ng, airbase-ng and others.

In case you find security issues in Aircrack-ng or our domains, we recently added a security policy to explain how to report them. It is on GitHub, on our website, as well as  security.txt.
