Bugger I missed read this topic. 🤦🤦The original post is below 👇

The chip shortage is the main problem.

But here was a update in April of this year.

I don't know the rest of it

Module development is community driven, so basically it's up to you and others to make this happen. Some modules are being developed atm and being released. One big misconception is that there are so few modules for the Mk7 compared to the Nano/Tetra. However, that is just a "number game". Ppl look at the list of modules for the Nano/Tetra and then look at what's available for the Mk7 and think it's so bad that the Mk7 has such few modules available. However, some of the modules for previous models have been included in the base functionality of the Mk7 (i.e. it isn't needed as a module, it's there from the start integrated into the Mk7). Then, some modules are really obsolete due to the fact that the cyber security landscape is always shifting and moving forward. Some modules were "converted" by Hak5 at the time of release, although the module development should be community driven (and also has been in the past).

Any of the 5 GHz adapters that are in the list of compatible ones should work, I mainly use the Alfa ACM but also other ones with the same chipset. I haven't experienced any problems this far (using the beta that is).

I purchased the recommended ALFA AC adapter but no power seems to get to it from the usb port. Have tested the port is working and I have tested the adapter on my desktop and laptop with no issues.

Any suggestions?

The USB adapter power LED does not light up. The USB Devices section of the GUI does not show the adapter. And looking before and after plugging in the adapter in the /dev/ folder show shows no difference.

Thanks for your help.

The LED never lights up on mine when attached to the Mk7. Check with lsusb. Also use the beta release to get "built in" 5 GHz support. If not, you have do some workarounds to use 5 GHz adapters for scanning and such in the web gui.

I hope you mean the standard when you say "AC", because if you bought the Alfa AWUS036AC you are a bit out of luck, it's the ACM that is compatible (they look the same but the "M" is important so that you get the correct chipset).

Nope, I have the `AWUS036ACM` model.

Really good to know.

I am on the beta channel.

I'll have to try `lsusb` Thanks for you help!

It should automagically show up as wlan3 (in the web gui and of course when executing ifconfig)

Looks like it's working now. 

Had to reinstall the firmware.

Now I'm getting the adapter both in the shell and GUI.

Thanks for your help @chrizree

yes, I believe I ordered the wrong one from Amazon 😞

I can select the wlan3 interface for recon, but Pineap does not start so it's not working.

I will get the proper supported adaptor
