I am using parrot security edition 4.5 64 bit, as primary OS, without any other operating systems installed.
Hello everyone, so I am having quite a few isues using network related applications (macchanger, airmon…) and commands (wlan0up/down, wlan0modemonitor). Basically, everytime I do ifconfig wlan0 down, iwconfig wlan0 mode monitor, and then I get wlan0 back up it stops working and I have to restart the whole system. Even if I just get wlan0 down and then back up, it will simply disconnect and it wont start again. It will just continue to try and connect to then fail, in a loop. I have already tried restarting networkmanager and everything, but the only solution is to restart the system. This makes me unable to use monitor mode and other functions. I am on a laptop, using a realtek external usb wifi adapter. If you have any ideas on how to fix it, please let me know.
Thank you in advance!
