    After you introduce this line “airodump-ng wlan0”, I can’t write anything after. What should I do so that “[email protected]:#” appear in order to continue to introduce other commands.

      Bro, press “ctrl+C”. Or open a new terminal without closing the previous one. As we need it to get bssid , channel and the name of network we are cracking.

      Because the last command was write in “sudo” mode so you need to enter you “sudo” password which is usually root or thor.
      Btw line10 is wrong if you want to reset your ifconfig you should write

      sudo iwconfig wlan0 mode manager
      instead of
      sudo iwcofnig wlan0 mode monitor

      there is few wordlists in kali by default.
      and you can find very large, like 15GB lists … https://goo.gl/F84s0l
      or you can easily create your own lists with crunch
