    AWUS036H on Samsung ARM Chromebook NOT WORKING

    Okay, so I've been troubleshooting this all over the internet for the past couple of hours (or 6), and I just can't get it to work.

    I'm on a Samsung ARM Chromebook, running the Chromebook img of Kali.
    I have the Alfa AWUS036H Wireless USB, but it just won't work. It seems like the rtl8187 drivers aren't installed, and I can't figure out how to do that.

    I've tried to download the compat-wireless drivers, but since I cannot "make" and install the drivers, that solution won't help me out.

    Here's some terminal outputs.

    root@kali:~# ifconfig
    lo Link encap:Local Loopback

    mlan0 is the internal wireless card.

    root@kali:~# iwconfig
    mlan0 IEEE 802.11abgn ESSID:"MyWiFi"

    lo no wireless extensions.

    Bus 001 Device 004: ID 2232:1037
    So as you can see, the device is recognized, but I cannot initiate it, or see it anywhere.

    I've installed wicd, which didn't work either.

    Please, can anyone help me out here? I've been trying everything.

    Kali ARM 1.0.5? Try 1.0.0... Wifi is broken in ARM 1.0.5

    Is there a way I can downgrade? I am using the Chromebook image, so if there's somehow I can downgrade through terminal, it would be awesome!
