    It's still a windows kernel underneath (thus windows drivers) and my guess it's a limitation of WSL and/or the windows drivers.

    Work around: Use VirtualBox or VMware workstation

    I don't believe packet capture/injection will ever be available on Windows (even though NPCAP exists, it is unstable and work on a very limited number of cards and only allows packet capture in a more limited way than linux)

    how do you get wlan0 in VirtualBox to be used by kali?

    passwdmo, unrelated to this, so next time, open a new thread.

    However, here is the answer: simply plug it.
