Alfa AWUS036H (Not NHA) Interface Fix


Recommended Posts

Note: Other issues such as excessive power draw can still cause problems, this is not officially supported by the Hak5 team - this is simply a fix to resolve the interface detection.

I was recently looking for a fix to the Alfa AWUS036H USB wifi adapter being detected as wlan0 upon a fresh reboot of the pineapple (causing the internal card to be detected as wlan1).

The solution is quite simple, change the drivers (RTL8187) boot sequence to something after the internal cards driver (ath9k). The following command does this:

mv /etc/modules.d/27-rtl8187 /etc/modules.d/29-rtl8187


That's it. Now it works as intended. That's all for now folks. ;)
