beeps Posted August 5, 2017 Share Posted August 5, 2017 Hi All, I know this has probably been mentioned on the internet countless times, but I can't seem to get my AWUS036NEH adapter working with Kali Rolling. I've been at this for days and just can't get my head around it. I'm running Linux kali 4.9.0-kali4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.9.30-1kali1 (2017-06-06) x86_64 GNU/Linux. I've trawled through forums here and other places and tried various set ups to get this working with no luck, so hopefully someone here can help me out. Issue: Getting AWUS036NEH adapter to work with Kali Rolling. I can get the device on the system, but I am unable to scan APS (airodump wlan0mon). Although, after trying numerous times to get the adapter working, and keep a log of each step, airodump did work randomly once. (The steps I did will be displayed below) Setup: Kali is running on Virtualbox VM 5.1.24 Tested the following: Plugged in adapter, selected the USB device to be recognized by Virtual BOX and ran lsusb and can see the device. Please see below for what I did and got it working, but does not work anymore when I try again. This tells me, that the adapter intermittently works, but am I not understanding or missing something to get it working consistently? I have each time ran airmon-ng check kill, on each attempt to get it working. (I've set up the adapter on my MAC OS and it works perfectly fine) Quote root@kali:~# lsusb Bus 001 Device 002: ID 148f:3070 Ralink Technology, Corp.
