charlie1 Posted March 7, 2021 Share Posted March 7, 2021 Hey all! 🙂 Had a nano for a couple of years now. It has never worked. Not in any OS or VM. Not in any capacity 😞 I wish it did, I think its an awesome device and I have tried so hard to get it to work but I am considering giving in at this point. I used to own a basic alfa adapter (around $15 on amazon). That and kali worked, it only operated on 2.4 GHz and you had to do all the work manually but it was pretty functional, definitely worth the price paid at least. I am thinking of selling the nano to get 2 of those adapters again. I own a Macbook Pro, 2014 retina. I am on seperate subnet at home so connection sharing is not currently practical via MacOS. Using Kali as either a Live USB or a VM in either Virtualbox or VMware Fusion doesn't work either unfortunately. I have been able to get the connection shared and setup in linux but it does not stay functional, breaking after a very short time ~5 mins or so. At most, I was able to get the bulletins to load and run a scan but the scan didn't yield expected results (much less than expected) and I wasn't able to capture so much as a handshake, much less attempt a MITM attack or similar.... Connection sharing never shares, it's setup as required and flat out does not work, or does, then breaks as soon as you use anything else. I have seen others having issues with getting the SSID list to populate from scans but i haven't had that issue. The problem i have is getting them to broadcast. I was ONCE able to get it to broadcast SSID's it had captured from a scan (woohoo!) and when i connected to the network i had no access at all 😕 I love the concept but I've had it a while now and it's never once worked at home when ive had an idea to try it out for something, let alone taking out for use in the field. I just have no idea how i am ever going to see any value from this thing, if i cant make it do what it was intended to do, at home, on my own network - giving it everything on a platter, how can i expect it to work in a much more secure environment? It's got so bad ive been searching how to utilize it for it's adapters alone, disregarding the interface, which is not what i want to do! It did work once breifly doing a de-auth, once breifly broadcasting SSID's but I never feel I had the full use out of it. The new ones look awesome too, i just can't justify buying one if the experience is like this 😞 Anyone else having issues ? Can anyone offer any support before i give in? I have Mac laptop / desktop, Windows desktop and various Live USB's and VM's I can use for troubleshooting Many Thanks!! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
