    I have been trying to connect adapter to my custom Kali. I followed the instructions as in the lecture.
    1. I added it in settings
    2. Boot custom kali
    3. Went to devices to connect it.

    But the problem is the the WiFi doesn’t show for me to connect my network. I was only able to connect it once and it worked. I’ve tried to update firmware and it says it up to date. I have tried to install compact wireless and after that it showed USB wireless connection option which my adapter but when I try to connect to network, it stop after I put my router password and return an error message ‘connection failed’ please what could be the cause and the solution.

    I have tried different things

    Hi Sithum!
    Are you still using the latest custom kali image provided by Zaid? Cause it has the needed drivers for that specific chipset. And should work out of the box.
    Also you can try:

    – Experiment with connecting the adapter before and after Kali fully loads, and after you log in as root.
    – Experiment with setting the adapter to use USB 2 and USB 3.
    – Make sure you connect the adapter directly to the computer, don’t use a hub or an extension.
    – And experiment with connecting the adapter to different USB ports.

    Hope it helps!


    Experiment with the connection but make sure you disable the adapter in windows control panel and forget it as a network on your windows WiFi connection.


    yah i do it but it show same result.


    Send a screenshot of the error message you get
