Capture data from other computers in the network?


Hi! I have an Atheros adapter that supports monitor mode.

My network interface is wlan0. When I run the command:

airmon-ng start wlan0

a new network interface is beeing setup and it´s called mon0.

When I connect to my network, then it is the wlan0 interface that gets the IP from the router, but it seems that it is the mon0 interface that is in monitor mode (but it has not get any IP address).

What is required to capture data from other computers in my network?
