Hi,

I got "command failed: Device or resource busy (-16)" error when i tried to set the channel for my wifi module using iw (iw dev wlp1s0 set channel 4 HT20) , even though all the processes accessing this have been stopped and the wlp1s0 is also down. Please help me !

Hi,

 

 

Could you try with these commands:

 

 

$ ip link set wlp1s0 down

 

$ iw dev wlp1s0 set type monitor

 

$ ip link set wlp1s0 up

 

$ iw dev wlp1s0 set channel 4 HT20
