    I have bought this as replacement for my old AWUS036H card. It looks like it is not supported anymore by Kali developers and is end of life.
    It should be nice if the Kali developers can implement the drivers into Kali, just like they did with the drivers for AWUS036H.

    I there is another wifi card that is better, i like to know.

    Kali Linux 2017.1 release now supports RTL8812AU chipset (AWUS036ACH).

    Installation:
    Code:
    apt-get update
    apt install realtek-rtl88xxau-dkms
    Usage:
    No idea. Airmon-ng start wlan0 doesn't work. Can somebody help me with this?

    Hey, awesome for you that it works. I get an error trying the commands you posted, with the same WiFi ACH card. I get the error:

    "Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06) :
    SET failed on device wlan0 ; Operation not permitted."

    after entering the commands:
    ip link set wlan0 down
    iwconfig wlan0 mode monitor

    Any ideas?

    UPDATE: Okay seems it didn't work because I tested in a VM. Tried on bare metal and that works. However 5GHz does not seem to work.

    i couldn't get the card into monitor mode using vverloop's post. The card thats featured in the kali blog iis useless without the ability to use monitor mode and injection. Anyone else have it working somehow?

    Hi Soledge,

    I got the driver working with injection on an older Kali distro. But guess what, the new Kali release, comes til Linux 4.9.0 kali4 headers, and the installation of the driver asks for kali3 headers so it doesn't install properly.

    I think the driver must be updated, or I need to understand something. Cause, it doesn't work.

    Anyways, Soledge, don't use a VM because then it won't work.
    If that doesn't work and you see an installation error message, then try an earlier Kali release.

    The device works in virtual machine if you enable USB 3.0 support-
    If you have problems with the dkms package you can always install the source.
    The drivers used to build the dkms package are taken from there: https://github.com/astsam/rtl8812au
    I just updated Kali Linux.

    And injection is working

    About the naming problem, if you want the inetrface to ba called wlanXmon
    Code:
    sudo ifconfig wlan1 down
    sudo ip link set wlan1 name wlan1mon
    udo ifconfig wlan1mon up
    And now you have wlan1mon in monitor mode...


    5Ghz does work!
    pixiewps attack with the device and astsam's drivers against my ac access point

    PIN and Key are recovered immediately

    You should go to the GitHub branch of astsam and read the closed issues and opened ones, a lot of things are explained.

    Thank you for providing this info. Im having troubles using the adapter to find APs. all of my other adapters find quite a few more than the one my ACH found.
    I tested it on my Alfa NH, NHA and WN722N. all cards found at least six access points but the ACH. what gives?
    I also adjusted the txpower to see if that would have any effect but it didnt seem to help

    Be sure to clean any previous installation before installing the drivers you want to try.
    You really have to use airmon-ng check kill or kill any process such as wpa_suppplicant, network-manager before using monitor mode.
    I see what you mean, i don't know the exact reason, it can happens, i think when you start the PC with the USB plug-in. I am not really sure, i have been trying many drivers for more than one year in different distributions,
    Anyway in latest kali, that what happened to me with airodump-ng

    Very bad! I should have a full shell of PA in less than 10 seconds. and i do not even have 15
    So
    1) I brought the interface down again ifconfig wlan1 down
    2) Unpluged the USB device
    3) Plug it again
    4) enable mode monitor iwconfig wlan1 mode monitor
    5) bring the interface up ifconfig wlan1 up
    Now it works as it should:

    I did not even scanned for 4 seconds and my shell was full.
    The day and the night... Don't ask me why. Network manager and System.d are bitches.

    I tried installing the drivers for the awus036ach as well and am having issues, it works great on my windows10 though. My problem seems basic but I can not get it to install drivers properly. The system can see it as Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0bda:8812 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8812AU 802.11a/b/g/n/ac WLAN Adapter. This is usb kali with persistence.
    I get the following errors I have tried the instruction to install drivers for this on the kali website blog page talking about this adaptor. (apt-get update and then apt install realtek-rtl88xxau-dkms)
    Just wondering if someone can point me in the right direction!

    Hey undersc0re

    It looks like "kernel headers for this kernel does not seem to be installed." You should install kernel headers.

    apt-get install -y linux-headers-$(uname -r)
