    How to use WiFi with internal card while USB is in monitor mode?


    I am attempting to use my external USB wireless adapter (ALFA AWUS036NH) in monitor mode while still using my internal card (Intel Wireless 7265).

    However, when typing "airmon-ng check kill", it kills my interwebs.

    Code:
    root@kali:~# airmon-ng check kill
    
    Killing these processes:
    
      PID Name
     9668 wpa_supplicant
    11901 avahi-daemon-ch
    
    root@kali:~# airmon-ng start wlan1
    
    
    PHY	Interface	Driver		Chipset
    
    phy0	wlan0	iwlwifi		Intel Corporation Wireless 7265 (rev 59)
    phy2	wlan1	rt2800usb	Ralink Technology, Corp. RT2870/RT3070
    
    		(mac80211 monitor mode vif enabled for [phy2]wlan1 on [phy2]wlan1mon)
    		(mac80211 station mode vif disabled for [phy2]wlan1)

    Is there a way to only use my external card for monitor mode, and my internal card only for WiFi?

    Thanks

    Reboot and connect to the Internet using wlan0.
    Then run:
    Code:
    airmon-ng start wlan1
    airodump-ng wlan1mon
    What happens. This is what works for me on my laptop.

    Same here i just run

    airmon-ng start wlan1

    then if the internet goes off i just use

    sudo service network-manager start or restart

    then i double check with

    sudo airmon-ng to see if its still on monitor mode but the usb internal stays on wifi

    Simply don't use check kill (that stops network manager)
    with kali rolling there is no need to use check kill, use airmon-ng to start monitor mode on the interface you want, you will remain connected with the other one.
