Here I can see two wireless adapters

The one is switched off and the other is working
Is that correct?
You have two wireless adapters?

Now type this command and post the results
airmon-ng start wlan1

root@bt:~# airmon-ng start wlan1


Found 2 processes that could cause trouble.
If airodump-ng, aireplay-ng or airtun-ng stops working after
a short period of time, you may want to kill (some of) them!

PID      Name
1510      dhclient3
1567      dhclient3
Process with PID 1510 (dhclient3) is running on interface wlan0


Interface      Chipset            Driver

wlan1            Unknown       rtl8192cu - [phy1]
                        (monitor mode enabled on mon0)
wlan0            Broadcom      b43 - [phy0]
