Help airodump-ng shows nothing

My device supports monitor mode but when I run
Sudo airodump-ng wlan0
Process starts but shows nothing

Have tried :
1.Apt-get update and distro-update
3.restarting networkmanager


You need to put your network card into monitor mode first.

First see what network device you want to use and put that in monitor mode.

airmon-ng start wlan0

iI you do the ifconfig command you will see another one hase been made.

In your case it should be wlan0mon

Now you can use your airodump command to see devices in reach with the network device in monitor mode.

airodump-ng wlan0mon

That should do the trick.

Otherwise I would recommend to get another wifi dongle that is compatible with kalilinux or the os you’re using with airodump.

Also here is a video of going trough the process of what you want.
