View Full Version : Samsung galaxy Tab 2 with Linux Deploy and Atheros AR9271

Hey All, I am new to linux and all this stuff so go easy on me! :D

I have rooted my Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0" and installed linux deploy and ARM IMG of Kali. I have an OTG cable which works ok for thumb drives etc. I also have an Atheros AR9271, when I plug it in it doesn't light up, I have butchered an old USB cable to ensure it is getting enough power so I don't think thats an issue but its not working, its not seen by pcap in android and its not seen by kali as a wireless interface, but it is seen as a USB device by Kali.


android@localhost:~$ lsusb
Bus 001 Device 024: ID 0cf3:9271 Atheros Communications, Inc. AR9271 802.11n
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

Can someone help me understand why Kali linux knows what it is, but won't bring it up as an interface?
