    Running one Interface in Monitor and the Other in Managed

    So, I have a bit of a challenge here. I'd like to monitor traffic on my computer, which is running linux (obviously). I have wlp2s0, which is my internal wireless card. I want this card to stay in Managed mode. I also have wlp2s1, which is my Alfa AWUS036NHA, which I would like to put into Monitor (Promiscuous) mode in order to monitor traffic. I know I can do this in a VM, and it has been the way I have been doing this previously. I'm wondering if I even need the VM. I know I have to kill processes in order for monitor mode to function, but is there any way around that? The goal is to have wireshark running off of wlp2s1, while I'm browsing off of wlp2s0.

    Read thru the following link

    Essentially if you uncheck all the autoconnect settings on Network Manager(NM) for the device in monitor mode you can use that adapter in monitor mode and NM will not disrupt its operations thus airmon-ng check kill does not have to be used and other adapters can connect to the internet etc.
