    Alfa AWUS036NH not usable when i connect it

    Hello guys i installed the latest version of Kali Linux 32bit (2018.1) on USB persistence
    i run it mostly with my laptop
    and i have Alfa AWUS036NH wireless card and its not appear when i use the command
    its detect only the chipset of my laptop the builtin wireless card
    airmon-ng i see

    PHY Interface Driver Chipset

    phy0 wlan0 ath9k Qualcomm Atheros QCA9565 / AR9565 Wireless Network Adapter (rev 01)

    any chance that i can do something about it?
    i cant find driver for it i did some research and its said that this card no need driver for Linux and should work without any problem
    maybe because i use in laptop it do not recognize it?
    when i used it on VMware back then it worked great

    lsusb should indicate whether is it plugged or not. Look also in dmesg to see if there is any error about it. Clear dmesg before plugging the card using "dmesg -c" to have only relevant info.
