    Realtek RTL8812BU Driver for Kali Linux

    Hello all,

    Just felt I'd throw this out there as I had this issue so surely someone else will too.

    How to get the Realtek RTL8812BU driver installed on Kali (Kernel 4.19.28-2 at time of writing)

    From a 100% fresh install, connected to the internet (via NAT Network or whatever), run the following commands:
    Code:
    apt update
    apt install bc -y
    git clone https://github.com/cilynx/rtl88x2BU_WiFi_linux_v5.3.1_27678.20180430_COEX20180427-5959.git
    cd rtl88x2BU_WiFi_linux_v5.3.1_27678.20180430_COEX20180427-5959
    VER=$(sed -n 's/\PACKAGE_VERSION="\(.*\)"/\1/p' dkms.conf)
    sudo rsync -rvhP ./ /usr/src/rtl88x2bu-${VER}
    sudo dkms add -m rtl88x2bu -v ${VER}
    sudo dkms build -m rtl88x2bu -v ${VER}
    sudo dkms install -m rtl88x2bu -v ${VER}
    sudo modprobe 88x2bu
    After running all that, you should see your 8812BU in ifconfig and you should be able to monitor and packet inject with it.

    Note: With time, the author of the driver may make a new major release, so be sure to check for a new repo at https://github.com/cilynx/

    Cheers guys

    How did you test monitor and inject?

    In my just full-upgraded Kali VM 64:
    Code:
    root@kali:~# airmon-ng check kill && airmon-ng start wlan0
    PHY	Interface	Driver		Chipset
    phy1	wlan0		rtl88x2bu	Realtek Semiconductor Corp. 802.11ac NIC
    ERROR adding monitor mode interface: command failed: Operation not supported (-95)

    This driver also work with RTL8812AU. To enable monitor mode. start fluxion "./fluxion.sh" enter option 2 for capturing handshake. After the wifi adapter is initialised. open another terminal tab. Then you can enter "airodump-ng fluxwl0".

    Lightbulb I hope it will help you with enabling monitor mode.

    I think you can also use this method to enable monitor mode -
    Code:
    root@kali:~#ifconfig wlan0 down
    root@kali:~#airmon-ng check kill
    root@kali:~#iwconfig wlan0 mode monitor
    root@kali:~#ifconfig wlan0 up
    root@kali:~#airodump-ng --band a --channel 2 -- write output wlan0
    Feather you can see if interface is in monitor mode by typing this:
    root@kali:~#iwconfig wlan0
    wlan0 is an [interface]
