    Wifite WPA handshake not happening

    WPS and WEP cracking with wifite are working properly, but WPA cracking is just cycling between listening and deauthing clients from my router.

    WPA handshake capture works just fine when testing with fern-wifi and when sending aircrack commands manually. I've looked all over the internet but nothing addresses this particular issue. I am just a few feet away from my routers.

    UPDATE: iAnswered my on question. After much trial and error, basically you have to specify to perform the handshake with aircrack.

    syntax in kali: wifite -wpa -nodict -aircrack

    That's it.

    this syntax disables tshark parsing, which seems to be broken in v85 due to changed tshark output.

    I just added a post with fix here:
