Recommended Posts

Hello,

I have a problem with my USB Key alfa on kali linux.

At the start of kali, she detect network, after i put in monitor mode with :

airmon-ng check kill
airmon-ng start wlan0

After i use, but i don't detect any network :

airodump-ng wlan0mon

After i put it in managed  mode :

airmon-ng start wlan0
service NetworkManager restart

But she not detect network, i have juste the wifi icon.

If you have any idea, tell me please.

Good day.

Found 2 processes that could cause trouble.
Kill them using 'airmon-ng check kill' before putting
the card in monitor mode, they will interfere by changing channels

What are you running Kali on? Live ISO, VM, HDD install ? 

If VM, what software?

Seen this before with VirtualBox

Yet on windows it works perfectly.

I guess to rule out power issue is that on the same system that Kali is on, dual boot?

Did you buy a genuine Alfa adapter?  Some of the knock offs cause issues in Kali.  The RT3070 chipset should be plug and play as long as you didn't load any other drivers manually into Kali.

Has anyone found a fix to this? I'm having the same issues.

I'm running dual-boot Kali Linux with MacOS.

Help would be really appreciated!

I do have the exact same problem. Same WiFi stick on Kali 2020.

I cant solve it..

My stick does work on Windows perfectly. But not in a Kali 2020 VM and not on a installation on hdd.

It does work on the Kali Live CD (WHY EVER??). I installed it with that live cd and it doesnt work again.

wlan1 -> device not ready

"error - unstable hardware"

"device failed to enter state 4 (-5)

So in vmware it seems that I can get the AWUS036NEH to work on Kali 2019.2 and before but NOT Kali 2019.3 and forward.  Using uname -r I get:

Kali 2019.2 => 4.19.0-kali4-amd64

Kali 2019.3 => 5.2.0-kali2-amd64

So I guess when the kernel went from 4 to 5 we lost support for the AWUS036NEH.  I also have an AWUS051NH and so far it works on everything up to 2019.4.  I haven't tried the 2020's yet as I have to modify my VMs and I haven't done that yet.  I'm also downloading the ISOs as I want to see if the AWUS036NEH's work in those as Mauley stated.  I'm curious why it would work in an ISO and not on an installed OS or VM.  I'll update when I have more info.
