Hello everyone,

I was learning kali for a few month now, however still struggling with many things.

Hoping you might help me with the problem I faced now:

I got myself an Atheros Network Adapter AR9271 and I am sure it is working, I managed to connect it to my kali in vmware on Mac, monitor mode works just fine, however

whenever I connect it to kali on my PC, i can't get it working.

lsusb shows it being connected:

Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0cf3:9271 Atheros Communications, Inc. AR9271 802.11n

I have ath9_htc driver installed,

dmesg |grep usb shows following:

[ 121.486209] usb 1-2: Product: UB91C
[ 121.486214] usb 1-2: Manufacturer: ATHEROS
[ 121.486218] usb 1-2: SerialNumber: 12345

[ 122.752294] usbcore: registered new interface driver ath9k_htc
[ 122.770327] usb 1-2: firmware: direct-loading firmware htc_9271.fw
[ 123.120415] usb 1-2: ath9k_htc: Transferred FW: htc_9271.fw, size: 50980
[ 131.368932] usb 1-2: ath9k_htc: USB layer deinitialized


airmon-ng doesn't show my anything, neither i can't see it with iwconfig.

I am connected to the internet using a bridged connection, therefore I would expect Atheros to be displayed as an additional wireless extension.

Hoping for your help! Thanks in advance!
