    Alfa AWUS036NHV working with kali

    Ask for help to solve the following problem:
    Operating System: Kali-Linux-3.14-vm-amd64.
    Wireless adapter: Alfa AWUS036NHV

    Hello all,
    I have been trying to find a answer to this problem for a bit and nothing on google or an already existing form post cover this alfa so i hope to find a answer for any other person who is stuck like me!
    My main goal is to be able to use this alfa to do packit sniffing wifi cracking and other wifi related things.
    So I have found this alfa is not fully out of box supported how ever it can be seen by kali, here are some commands with there outputs,

    Hi there!
    Maybe I'm missing something somewhere but as far as I know RTL8188EU doesn't support injection and the developer (Mark Greaves) of the driver doesn't seems to be interest to make that driver to support injection.

    Take a look here:

    You're best off asking on the aircrack-ng forum:

    I know little about it.

    It's my intention to help people with Linux problems, not breaking wireless encryption (even for legitimate purposes).
    Even in aircrack forums there are some references about incomparability of aircrack-ng suite and RTL8188EU driver.

    As I said, maybe I missing something. I've done a very quick research.
    So, in short, the results you're getting are normal. Unpleasant, but normal..
