Sorry for putting this question here. I enrolled into this course on a different site (udemy) and can’t post the question on the forum here.
My question is about wireless wi-fi adaptors.
I purchased a Techkey, Drive-free, dual-band wireless adapter (FCC ID: 2AKC6XHT-WF5B).
I tried using it with Linux to follow along with the lectures but I couldn’t see it in the USB drop-down menu.
My questions is:
Is this Techkey wireless adaptor compatible with Linux or is the issue is that I failed to connect it correctly?
Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.May 17, 2021 at 6:24 pm #54790diegoModerator
Do you know the chipset in the adapter? We need to know it, I try to search for it but techkey has many different adapters.
Also ask the questions in Udemy’s Q&A section, use your computer and not the mobile app to do it.

Ayy, Diego. Good to hear from you again, brother. Had a feelin’ you would come to save me. 🙂
I don’t know what the chipset in the adapter is, brother. Sorry, this is all new to me and I’m hapless when it comes to tech. If there’s a way to know what the chipset is, please let me know and I’ll look into it.
I looked on FCCID.io (https://fccid.io/2AKC6XHT-WF5B) and got a bunch of pages of info that I can’t make heads or tails of. XD
Honestly, Diego, if you can just recommend a dual-band wireless adapter that you know will work, I would really appreciate it. I don’t mind buying another adapter/the one that best works with the course when I can afford it.
Sorry for the trouble, man. If you don’t respond to this, no hard feelings. I’ll post the question again on Udemy’s Q&A in a couple of days.
Thanks, Diego.May 18, 2021 at 5:54 pm #54816diegoModerator
As mentioned in the course requirements you need an external wireless adapter for the cracking lectures 11 to 28, you can do everything else without one though (from lecture 30 and on), just make sure you set Kali to use a Nat Network as shown in lecture 5 and skip the part where I add my external wireless card.
The built in card is not good for hacking, you need a powerful card that supports monitor mode and packet injection, I recommend anything with an Atheros or RTL8812AU chipset.
Checkout the adapters on the following link, they all support monitor mode and packet injection:
If you’re not sure which one to get the checkout the adapters video in the resources of lecture 11, here is a link to it anyway:
