    Lightbulb HOW TO FIX Airodump-ng fixed channel -1 Kali kernel 3.12 also on rt2870/3070usb

    I noticed that after the latest updates of Kali linux aircrack-ng in some cases has stopped working properly
    reading a little, the diff of the new driver backport I noticed that the new wireless driver inhibit the proper functioning of the monitor when an interface up, this in addition to causing the malfunction of airodump-ng (aircrack tool) prevents the use social engineering attacks. For this I have moved in search of a quick and practical solution especially working on the new driver backport because the old patch channel-negative-one-maxim.patch it is no longer usable.Giving an eye on the internet I could not find a patch interesting,http://www.mathyvanhoef.com/2012/09/...-for.html,This patch adds a lot of new drivers fix , everything can be read directly from the blog Mathy Vanhoef. thanks to this patch, and another patch that I created to measure following the guidelines of Mathy Vanhoef are able to permanently solve the problem of channel -1
    This solution removes the channel -1, on any wireless drivers

    here's how to :
    Download backport driver 3.12-1 and extract :
    1
    Code:
    cd /usr/src/
    2
    Code:
    sudo wget https://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/projects/backports/stable/v3.12/backports-3.12-1.tar.bz2
    3
    Code:
    sudo tar xvf backports-3.12-1.tar.bz2
    4
    Code:
    cd backports-3.12-1
    5
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install patch
    download and apply patch
    6
    Code:
    sudo wget http://patches.aircrack-ng.org/mac80211.compat08082009.wl_frag+ack_v1.patch
    7
    Code:
    sudo patch -p1 < mac80211.compat08082009.wl_frag+ack_v1.patch
    download compatdrivers_chan_qos_frag.patch by Mathy Vanhoef I recommend using this because I have correct offset
    8
    Code:
    sudo wget -Ocompatdrivers_chan_qos_frag.patch http://www.pastie.org/pastes/8846771/download
    9
    Code:
    patch -p1  < compatdrivers_chan_qos_frag.patch
    download my patch
    10
    Code:
    sudo wget -Ofix-channel-negative-1-on-new-backport-by-Devil_D.patch http://pastebin.com/wPwAJaQC
    11
    Code:
    patch -p1  < fix-channel-negative-1-on-new-backport-by-Devil_D.patch
    if you do not know what is the proper wireless drivers type and go on step 14
    12
    Code:
    make old config
    13
    if you know your driver type for example i have rt2870/3070 i type
    make deconfig-wifi To know which driver you just run in terminal airmon-ng

    Code:
    make defconfig-alx
    make defconfig-ar5523
    make defconfig-ath10k
    make defconfig-ath5k
    make defconfig-ath6kl
    make defconfig-ath9k
    make defconfig-b43
    make defconfig-b43legacy
    make defconfig-brcmfmac
    make defconfig-brcmsmac
    make defconfig-carl9170
    make defconfig-drm
    make defconfig-ieee802154
    make defconfig-iwlwifi
    make defconfig-media
    make defconfig-nfc
    make defconfig-regulator
    make defconfig-rtlwifi
    make defconfig-wifi
    make defconfig-wil6210
    14
    Code:
    make
    15
    Code:
    make install
    16
    Code:
    update-initramfs -u
    17
    Code:
    reboot

    I hope it help Happy Hacking

    Devil_D thanks!

    I need the driver for the RTL8187L. That doesn't appear in the defconfig list. I *think* I'm supposed to use the rtfwifi? In lines 10 & 11 you have rt28703070. Do I change that to rtlwifi?

    eg 9.

    no mad medik you haven't to change the name of the patch, that is a generic name that I gave to the patch
    You need to follow the guide up to Step 11
    skipping step 12
    then you have to keep it that way
    Code:
    make defconfig-rtlwifi
    Code:
    make
    Code:
    make install
    Code:
    reboot

    Thanks for your help Devil_D,

    I notice rtlwifi installs drivers for RTL8188, 8192 BUT NOT for RTL8187. Can you make a deconfig to install the drivers for RTL8187 please?

    Mad Medik you're right,for the rtl8187 driver need to enter the following command
    Code:
    make deconfig-wifi
    and not
    Code:
    make deconfig-rtlwifi
    and you will see that the installation will be successful I hope will help you

    i ran airmon-ng and i have the exact same model as you do on my secondary wireless card rt2870/3070, so ath9k is my primary card and i got rid of channel -1 error with your guide, i just now need to figure out the second card as well. Sorry for all the posts I am just trying to get this figured out. Thanks again

    I'm sorry if I answer only now
    I gave a look to the configuration file tries to give
    Code:
    make defconfig-wifi
    and not
    Code:
    make old config
    I think that this should solve the problem let me know if it is successful for safety uninstall reconfigure and reinstall the driver
    sorry again if I answer only now

    As it said you need to install kernel headers:

    sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)


    That should fix.

    I've followed your instructions, the fixed channel -1 is gone now, but my alfa AWUS036NHA with ath9k driver is now stuck on channel 1! airodump-ng can scan only on channel 1 and if I try manually to look for a network on another channel just doesn't show up.. How can I fix it?
    Same problem here. I've had this -1 error since the first release of backtrack 5. Been able to fix with compat-wireless and patch but now with backports and your fix I get channel one.
    I have Ralink 2561 PCI module. (RT61PCI driver)

    I got the same problem, after patched the backportsfiles - run make defconfig-rtlwifi - I get this error:

    Your kernel headers are incomplete/not installed.

    sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r) - does not fix the error? (no linux-headers3.12-kali1-amd64 found ) How can I fix that problem?

    how do you fix this with the new 3.14 kernel, i have tried using this method using https://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/ker...-3.14-1.tar.gz kernel and i am having no luck, previously you said to not use make oldconfig but instead to use make-defconfig-wifi and i am having no luck at all. Please help if you can, Thank you

    So far I've tried to do this at least six times with Kali 1.0.6, and every single time I have managed to bork my wireless to the point where I have to reinstall. The last time I did it, I just reinstalled Kali 1.0.7 over it hoping that the problem would be fixed. Needless to say, it wasn't. I've tried using the "-ignore-negative-one" flag when I capture, but it doesn't seem to work.

    One thing I had noticed is that when I applying the patches, I was getting errors. Unfortunately, the only way I could show what errors I got was if I attempted it again, and I finally got my install to where I like it, so needless to say, that's all but a non-starter.

    Is it possible there's something I'm missing? I can't understand why it's not working for me when it's working for everyone else.

    I've been struggling with this for a week now. I just did a complete reinstall, updated & upgrade. Confirmed that reaver doesnt work, aireplay gets stuck on channel -1, but airodump does properly hop through channels.

    Following the instructions for this driver backport port at step 9 I get:
    patching file drivers/net/wireless/rtl818x/rtl8187/dev.c
    patching file net/mac80211/cfg.c
    Hunk #1 FAILED at 826.
    1 out of 1 hunk FAILED -- saving rejects to file net/mac80211/cfg.c.rej
    patching file net/mac80211/tx.c
    Hunk #1 succeeded at 1490 (offset 8 lines).
    patching file net/wireless/chan.c
    patch unexpectedly ends in middle of line
    Hunk #1 succeeded at 480 with fuzz 1

    anyone have any suggestions?

    thanks in advance

    I too am looking for a fix as well, have not been able to fix channel -1 issue in Parrot os, and Ralink RT2870/3070 driver when running reaver has issues, failed to associate, even used airplay to authenticate, my ath9k driver seems to work thought im confused.

    I have been having the same issuewith the aircrack suite, I was reading somewhere that it was the libpcap0.8 and i downgraded it and it ended up uninstalling a bunch of tools.


    I have the 3.14 kernal, I just upgraded from backtrack to kali..

    Interface Chipset Driver

    wlan1 Ralink RT2870/3070 rt2800usb - [phy1]
    wlan0 Unknown rtl8192ce - [phy0]
    Will the patch work with 3.14 kernal or do i need another patch ?

    I am still having issues with backports on almost every distro after updating, im hoping to hear back from Devil as he seems to be one of the guru's

    i reinstalled kali, and now with no luck at all at getting this to work, the new kernel in kali 1.07 3.14 i cant seem to make this meathod work. I have tried different backports, 3.14.1 and 3.16.5 and have followed the same steps, I was told before to use make defconfig-wifi instead of make oldconfig, i have tried both, ive tried make menuconfig etc with no luck, i still am getting the channel -1 error. Any input would be great i cant get past this issue. Please and thanks, Also Devil when i apply your negative one patch it fails to patch correctly.

    Please help, thanks in advanced

    apt-get install gcc make linux-headers-$(uname -r) try that first

    what backport are you trying, propaply the old 3.12 kernel which isnt working for me try this. This is copy and pasted from the backbox forums

    I saw so many pain in the *** with same issue, over, and over again. I'm sure that you are just lazy like any *** on summer day.

    Maybe our wiki is not good for you, or it can't click and make copy/paste in your place.

    This tutorial was tested with "Ralink Technology, Corp. RT2870/RT3070 Wireless Adapter" some China SignalKing adapter. Same ralink run with Alfa AWUS036NH version.

    I will try to resolve all this mess from last few months with one line of command (or two, first need reboot), if you you have some issues, keep me posted or move your *** and give some solution. I don't have time to write bash script for this. First run system update.

    Quote
    sudo -i; apt-get update; apt-get upgrade; apt-get install linux-headers-generic-lts-saucy build-essential; reboot

    Run this if you are not already root:

    sudo -i

    Then:

    Quote
    cd /usr/src/;wget https://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/ker...15.1-1.tar.gz; tar -zxvf backports-*; cd backports-*; apt-get install patch; wget http://patches.aircrack-ng.org/mac80...+ack_v1.patch; patch -p1 < mac80211.compat08082009.wl_frag+ack_v1.patch; wget -Ocompatdrivers_chan_qos_frag.patch http://www.pastie.org/pastes/8846771/download; patch -p1 < compatdrivers_chan_qos_frag.patch; make defconfig-wifi; make; make install; update-initramfs -u; echo "REBOOT"; sleep 5; reboot

    And you are done ! If this don't help you, then do something better, like fishing Smiley

    If you want to remove all what you just made before and start from 0 run this command:

    Quote
    sudo -i; cd /usr/src/backports-*; make uninstall; cd .. ; sudo rm -rf /usr/src/backports-*

    ATH5K same lines just last one is (run as root, type sudo -i)

    I had the same issue, for channel -1 fix what worked and saved loads of headaches was after monitor mode is started just bring that wireless device down so if wlan1 is your device, use this. airmon-ng start wlan1 and after mon0 is created, use ifconfig wlan1 down. That was all I had to do and things work great not negative 1 issue and no problems

    I appreciated dataghost reply.... despite the fact that it was rather surly, he did summarize a lot of things with enough detail to remove some prior confusion.

    However.... I encounter the same issue as others in this thread... Namely when it comes to running the apparent "custom patch" , or -Ocompatdrivers_chan_qos_frag.patch from http://www.pastie.org/pastes/8846771/download.

    When I patch using this patch file, I get the following:


    root@kali - $ patch -p1 < compatdrivers_chan_qos_frag.patch
    patching file drivers/net/wireless/rtl818x/rtl8187/dev.c
    Hunk #1 succeeded at 251 (offset -1 lines).

    patching file net/wireless/chan.c
    patch unexpectedly ends in middle of line
    Hunk #1 succeeded at 689 with fuzz 1 (offset 209 lines).


    Now iirespective of the output of the remaining steps, I highly question the integrity of any of it since I get this error (shown above).

    And...just as an FYI... this exact same problem has happened to me since the beginning of the thread.... I always get an error when patching with this "custom" patch.

    Thanks you for an advice in advance. By the way, I am using this for airbase-ng, and other items, primarily in trying to (once again) fine-tune an easy-cred type script based on some recent defcon presentations.

    Thanks!
    Paul

    PS: I am using ath9K (AR9271 chipset).

    that is problably hapenning because who created the thread does now know very well how things work .

    these are his instructions ::
    Downloading a frag+ack patch
    sudo wget http://patches.aircrack-ng.org/mac80...g+ack_v1.patch

    applying that patch :
    sudo patch -p1 < mac80211.compat08082009.wl_frag+ack_v1.patch

    and then he tells everybody to download another frag+ack patch because it have the correct offset !!!
    Downloading
    sudo wget -Ocompatdrivers_chan_qos_frag.patch http://www.pastie.org/pastes/8846771/download

    patching again !!!!
    patch -p1 < compatdrivers_chan_qos_frag.patch

    so why did he write the first patch ?

    and to terminate he tells to download the patch to ignore the negative channel on airodump-ng
    sudo wget -Ofix-channel-negative-1-on-new-backport-by-Devil_D.patch http://pastebin.com/wPwAJaQC

    and patch it .

    patch -p1 < fix-channel-negative-1-on-new-backpo

    this is the most confuse explanation in this forum .
    I downloaded the latest backports 3.17 rc3 , and i am figuring out how to do it correctly , but i think you only need these patches : 1 & 3 , or 2 & 3 , and not 1,2,3 .

    When I get this bug, channel -1, I run these commands:
    airmon-ng check kill
    ifconfig wlan0 down
    airmon-ng start wlan0
    airbase-ng <your commands>

    I don't know why, but works.

    Hi everyone!
    I'm trying to patch my rtl8188eu. Is there any patch for this available? How can I find it? I figured out that this is a pretty recent driver, right? It's never shows up when I run airmon-ng after I try to patch it as suggested at the beginning.
    That's important to say that I'm trying this with a Kali installed in a VirtualBox.

    To get rid of negative channel you can:
    1) Kill-stop network-manager
    Code:
    service network-manager stop
    or as PePeLeGal wrote above:
    Code:
    airmon-ng check kill
    or to exclude the interface that you want to use from controlling by network manager:

    first off big thanks to everyone who has attempted to fix this over the last couple of months.

    I run kali and keep it upto date on a separate laptop (just a compaq of all things) and use both the internal wifi card (ath9k) and a Danets NextG Yagi (rt2870/3070usb).

    i beleive that i have pretty much ran into the same errors as everyone else but from following this thread, this link (Black Hat Sec Forum) and then following it up with this link Auto Script by D4RkNiK0l4s.

    Between these 3 activities i have managed to get my internal card (ath9k) back and working well without the need for --ignore-negative-one switches however the RT2870/3070 is now not recognised at all.

    I have read also that the patch detailed above, only resolves issues with 1 card and cant work where multiple cards are present on the one machine. Not sure of the validity of that however thought i would put it out there.

    If anyone who has successfully resolved the issue with the rt2870/3070 drivers has information on how to proceed then it would be greatly appreciated, however from the findings i have seen it looks like i should be best off getting another card which is backports compatible?

    thanks

    I tried this, but it didn't work due to various errors when patching after that when running make.

    Also my RT2870/3070 card sometimes is able to inject packages, but then I run reaver or airodump-ng for example and after that it gets the No Answer... 0 APs found error.
    It's quite obvious that reaver CAN'T work for me, if packet injection suddenly stops working; because of that I tried to run the patch, but obviously failed terribly.


    I'm really confused about Kali in general aswell. After I installed it freshly, it works fine, but then I run the general updates & upgrades and after that it gets fsck error when booting up - reinstalled Kali 4 times so far, but that's just a side now really.
