    RasPi3 - Realtek8812AU / AWUS036ACH - Installation fails, Wifi adapter not working

    Hello guys,

    The whole day I tried to install the Kali driver for my network adapter.
    Newest ARM-Image Kali Linux is installed on a Raspberry Pi 3 --> Kernel "4.4.50-v7+".

    First I tried it with the official command, but it seems not to work with the ARM version(?).

    root@kali:~#
    I tried some other things but nothing worked.
    Is there anybody out there with chipset rlt8812au and raspberry?

    How can I get things to work?
    PS: Installation even fails with my laptop (newest Full Kali Linux).


    Thank you in advance!!

    Same problem, except on a Core 2 Duo MacBook and my interface is the Linksys WUSB6300.

    I have no idea if its a driver issue or the USB 3 preference of the card.

    I've tried using Isusb but the command isn't found.

    Not sure what to do...
