When I try to run the aircrack-ng suite by starting off with airmon-ng start wlan0, the whole OS crashes and I get a kernel panic error and I have to actually turn the PC off then back on for it to work again. I'm using ubuntu 13.04. do you think that it's compatibility issues with the latest ubuntu? I also have a broadcom card so I thought it might have been that, but I used an external wifi adapter with a different driver of course and it still does it. do you think if I compile aircrack-ng from source that it would work? I could see it working if it was compatibility issues. any help would be awesome!

if you get a kernel panic, it's probably a busticated or changed driver. you need to tell people what hardware you're using if you want a good answer. –  hbdgaf Sep 22 '13 at 14:40
    
@hbdgaf: How can I tell that? –  mrSuperEvening Sep 22 '13 at 17:12
    
lspci, lsusb, uname -a, and lsmod output would all be helpful –  hbdgaf Sep 22 '13 at 20:12
    
@hbdgaf: Done!!! –  mrSuperEvening Sep 22 '13 at 23:40

Yes, broadcom wireless bug. You still hadn't posted the command output when I posted the intel recommendation. It's probably simpler to get a real wireless card built on atheros chipsets if you want to use aircrack instead of trying to get broadcom that doesn't perform standard tasks very well to do something as finicky as monitoring and injection. –  hbdgaf Sep 26 '13 at 19:34
