I am making acquiantance with wireless security and attacks and was told to run some tests with aircrack-ng and wireshark.
So I installed both of them and ran airmon to switch wi-fi card to monitor mode:
sudo airmon-ng start ra0 (this is my DWA-140 usb wi-fi adapter)
The wi-fi adapter seems to have restarted after that. Gues that's ok.
After that I ran wireshark as a superuser, chose the ra0 adapter and tried to sniff the test open network. I have my PC connected to it (via dwa-140) and an HTC phone and some stranger PCs. Wireshark runs on my PC.
The problem is that when I login to
%sitename% with a PC browser, I can see the cookies sent to it in Wireshark. But when I do the same thing with an Opera browser on my HTC, there is nothing detected. I know that stranger PCs are also sending data to
%sitename%, but I see nothing from them as well. Still I see a lot of packets from stranger PCs, but not the ones I need.
I'd like to know what I'm doing wrong. Will be thankful for any advice.
P.S. This runs on Ubuntu 12.04.1
