    wireless interface disappeared

    Wireless card disappeared on Kali 2.0
    I cannot longer see them.

    airmon-ng doesnt show a thing

    but when I do airmon-ng start wlan0 it shows like its trying to start the process
    also dmesg shows the wireless interface

    I do not see it under iwconfig.

    I do see it under "dmesg" and it shows
    product UB91
    etc.

    Any way to turn it on manually ? I do not see the activity light but it does show under lsusb as well.
    Atheros Comm AR9271 802.11n

    Does the driver need to be install or something?

    reference this two topics
