You are not wrong. But the information sharing is always with the understanding that it is in an ethical way. An ethical hacker uses the same tools and techniques as the bad guys but has permission of the owners of the systems. Maybe this is a more polite way to say it, but I truly don't think you have the permission of the "local SECURE signals" hitting your laptop. This is not only unethical but also illegal. So maybe take this as good advice that we are trying to prevent you from getting into trouble. Buy a cheap AP and hack your own lab.
So that being said, try aircrack ng
. Next time at least pretend like you're trying to test your own systems or those for which you have permission.
