I have been playing with the aircrack-ng tools, and also Kismet to see how my networks appear.
Kismet creates a monitor interface wlan0mon which it uses for scanning.
With airmon-ng I can create and remove monitor interfaces, but I am unable to remove wlan0mon created by kismet. wlan0mon remains regardless of if I forcefully kill the Kismet process or exit cleanly.
airmon-ng stop wlan0mon
results in a message that monitor mode is disabled for wlan0mon, but I can find no way to remove it.
Can anyone tell me why this is? I am much more interested in learning why I can't remove this interface, although a solution would also be nifty.
I have looked at another similar question which suggested using grimwepa with the verbose switch, but from what I could tell grimwepa never calls to use kismet.
