After enabling the monitor mode using
airmon-ng start wlp2s0 (as root), I’m unable to disable it and return back to managed mode.
I’ve tried the following (as root):
ifconfig wlp2s0mon down iwconfig wlp2s0mon mode managed ifconfig wlp2s0mon up
But when I checked using
wlp2s0 was still showing up as
wlp2s0mon , which means it was still in monitor mode.
(Finally, I had to reboot to turn monitor mode off)
