I have just successfully installed a driver (athk9_htc) for TP-Link TL-WN722N (a USB Wi-Fi adaptor) in Ubuntu 14.04.1. My goal is to capture Wi-Fi traffic with Wireshark.
I try to configure the adaptor to monitor mode by running:
sudo iwconfig wlan1 mode monitor
However it gives me an error message:
Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06): SET failed on device wlan1; Device or resource busy.
How can I set it to monitor mode?
I do not agree this is a duplicated question. Actually I have found that thread before I asked this question. However there are two responses in that thread, but not any verified answer. If I do not ask this question again, how can I get the answer? Also the answer given by @chili555 is different to the responses in that thread, and I verified this answer is working. If the question is duplicated, shouldn't it be added as a comment in that thread to indicate that a verified answer is here, instead of indicating an answered question is a duplicated question?
