    Avoiding Airmon-ng Check Kill and restarting NetworkManager

    If you evoke airmon-ng check kill in kali2.0 and then try and restore NetworkManager later on thru such commands as:

    service NetworkManager restart
    service network-manager restart
    service wpa_supplicant restart

    You will find full functionality of the wireless menus does not occur.

    There is a better way:

    Instead of using airmon-ng check kill try killing the processes thru pgrep.

    Enter

    pgrep NetworkManager [Enter]

    You will get a PID number

    In this example the PID number is 1112

    Next Enter

    kill 1112

    This kills NetworkManager

    Next type

    pgrep wpa_supplicant [Enter]

    In this example the PID number is 2221

    kill 2221

    This kills wpa_supplicant

    You can test this by running airodump-ng

    When you want to restore wireless functionality type

    service NetworkManager restart
    service wpa_supplicant restart

    You can test for full functionality by trying to connect to a network you never associated to before.

    Thanks , You can also make the interface in monitor mode without killing anything, by :

    ifconfig wlan(x) down

    iwconfig wlan(x) mode monitor

    ifconfig wlan(x) up

    and then revert by

    changing mode monitor to " managed "
