Displaying the networks in your area

In order to view the networks in your area we will use just a few commands (This is Terminal method)

First of all you would make sure that your wifi card is down with the command

ifconfig wlan0 down

then enable monitor mode of that card with

airmon-ng start wlan0   —— this will create a monitor mode network interface on mon0

now to see the networks and broadcasting devices around you just type

airodump-ng mon0

when you are done scanning the networks just press ctrl+c to exit the program
