    I have done the “Learn Ethical Hacking From Scratch” and have not been able to get the wireless adapter to work
    Have spent many hours back and forth, trying every setting but “ifconfig” still has nothing.
    Tried everything and it just does not work.
    Got a way to troubleshoot this?
    Thanks

    Do you have an external wireless adapter connected to your computer?
    Did you add the card to usb list like shown in lecture 11?
    If you did, then make sure that you don’t physically connect the card to the computer until Kali is fully booted, connect the card, then go to the devices menu (beside the file menu) >> USB >> Click your device.
    If you’ve done all of the above then can you tell me the model of your wireless adapter please?

    The wireless adapter is/was connected to my computer.
    I got the adapter on your site. Realtek AR88112AU.
    I added the card to the wireless list. Should I have replaced the XX with the number 12?
    After fully booting Kali I plugged in the adapter.
    Clicked on the card in the USB list.
    Ran ifconfig and it did not work.
    I tried USB 1, 2 and 3. Nothing!
    The Adapter is a Realtek AR8812AU.

    I’ve made a video on installing the drivers for this adapter, the steps are similar but please listen carefully to the notes that I mention.

    Basically try this on a fresh install

    Experiment with connecting the adapter before and after Kali loads.

    Experiment with setting the adapter to use usb 3 and 2.

    Here’s the video

    Also please let me know if you get any errors when running the commands shown in the video, and no you don’t need to replace the xx with anything.

    Dear Zaid,

    I don’t have a wireless adaptor available right now. Also, due to COVID 19 in India, all shops or Amazon unable to deliver the goods. Is there any alternative to this? I am currently at Lecture 4.3 of Learn Ethical Hacking from scratch and I am thinking of completing the course in this lockdown period which is very precious time.

    Regards,

    Shashank Sharma.

    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, 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:

    Hello Zaid, I am using your Kali image you provide on your website (actually link from udemy course) so I assume the drivers for AR8812AU should be fine. Especially if it is recognized correctly.
    I am able to change the MAC and to put it into monitor mode. However when I run airodump-ng I can see mainly clianets, 95% of them are not associated with any bssid. In the AP section above I see only 2 or 3 items which is defnitely too little. There is no useful information provided as well. Seems airodump-ng has problems to detect APs and their bssids. The problem occurs on AR8812AU, on another single band adapter from alfa it works ok. SOrry if this topic has been covered somewhere – I am unable to find it. Any help on that?
