    Question Is Kali Linux 2017.2 compatible with the Alfa AWUS1900 adapter ?

    Hi, I'm new to this forum, so sorry if I'm posting this at the wrong place ^^

    So, I started playing around with WiFi cracking last week (on my own network of cours ^^) and my old WiFi adapter (a chinese Alfa clone) died

    I'm was looking on Amazon for a replacement and I found this:
    https://www.amazon.fr/Network-AWUS19...ustomerReviews

    I have a couple questions:
    1. Is this adapter compatible with Kali Linux 2017.2 ?
    2. Can its power be changed from 20dBm to 30dBm (like my old chinese clone) ?
    3. Will I need any special drivers and if yes, where can I find them ?



    Hope someone can help, havea nice day

    The answer is easy.. it's a YES it's supported. currently using this one myself.

    1. It IS compatible with Kali
    2. The power CAN be changed to 30dBm
    3. Yes, because the driver "realtek-rtl88xxau-dkms" package from apt-get got some issues (which will be fixed soon) related to txpower,
    you better build it yourself from https://github.com/aircrack-ng/rtl8812au/tree/v4.3.21
