    ALFA AWUS036ACH not finding any networks

    Hi, I just got the ALFA AWUS036ACH usb wireless adapter with the drivers installed on my Kali box. It shows up in iwconfig and ifconfig as wlan0 but on the network manager gui, there is no wireless networks shown.

    iwconfig
    lo no wireless extensions.

    wlan1 IEEE 802.11 ESSID:"MFD5GHz"
    Mode:Managed Frequency:5.745 GHz Access Point: 20:C0:479:57:52
    Bit Rate=390 Mb/s Tx-Power=22 dBm
    Retry short limit:7 RTS thrff Fragment thrff
    Encryption keyff
    Power Managementn
    Link Quality=52/70 Signal level=-58 dBm
    Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
    Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:10 Missed beacon:0

    wlan0 IEEE 802.11 ESSIDff/any
    Mode:Managed Access Point: Not-Associated Tx-Power=18 dBm
    Retry short limit:7 RTS thrff Fragment thrff

    Power Managementff

    eth0 no wireless extensions.

    wlan0 is my wireless adapter.

    Any help on actually being able to find networks with my adapter? I have tried searching before and let it run for a while and it does not find anything despite there being around 20-30 near me.

    Thanks

    First thing I'd check is the output of dmesg, and journalctl...see if there are any errors there involving your card.

    Will the card go into monitor mode & do packet injection?
