Summary0003831: NMAP does not work over onboard wifi on Kali for raspberry pi 3
DescriptionWhenever trying to scan something over wifi, nmap returns
WARNING: eth_send of ARP packet returned -1 rather than expected 42 (errno=22: Invalid argument)

dmesg has a similar message:

nmap: packet size is too short (42 <= 50)

nmap works flawlessy over the ethernet interface or other wifi dongles.

Bettercap generates similar messages in dmesg:

packet_queue.r*: packet size is too short (42 <= 50)
Steps To Reproducejust try to scan something over Wifi:

root@kali:~# nmap -sV -A -p0-65535 192.168.1.253

WARNING: eth_send of ARP packet returned -1 rather than expected 42 (errno=22: Invalid argument)
WARNING: eth_send of ARP packet returned -1 rather than expected 42 (errno=22: Invalid argument)
Note: Host seems down. If it is really up, but blocking our ping probes, try -Pn
Nmap done: 1 IP address (0 hosts up) scanned in 6.19 seconds

sbrun (manager)

the patch for the wifi driver is in the linux kernel since version 4.8.5
kali-rolling currently has linux kernel version 4.9.6. You should upgrade your kernel.


Reassigning to Threeway in case he wants to update the prebuilt images.
