Channel hopping will inevitably cause you to lose traffic in your packet capture, since a wireless card in monitor mode can only capture on a single channel at any given time. When a monitor mode capture completes, turn off monitor mode with the command ifconfig interface -monitorso that the machine can again perform regular network operations with the The middle panel displays information about this packet, and you can choose a specific field of the packet such as Duration field shown in the figureand the contents of that field are displayed in hex and ASCII format in the bottom panel.

The menu Advanced Wireless Settings will appear where you can change the channel. The driver for the adapter will also send copies of transmitted packets to the packet capture mechanism, so that they will be seen by a capture program as well.
You will also need to have Administrator privileges. For adapters whose drivers support the new mac framework, to capture in monitor mode create a monitor-mode interface for the adapter and capture on that; delete the monitor-mode interface afterwards. Alternatively, you can set the capture run length in packets or minutesand the capture will automatically stop when that length has been met. If you can’t install airmon-ng, you will have to perform a more complicated set of commands, duplicating what airmon-ng would do.
