    Asus USB-AC56 Won't enter monitoring mode

    Hello all

    I'm new to Linux and I'm trying to get this up running.

    I have installed Kali 2019.2 v5.2 installed VitualBox and everything seem to work fine.

    I run command airmon-ng start wlan0

    Found 2 processes that could cause trouble.
    Kill them using 'airmon-ng check kill' before putting
    the card in monitor mode, they will interfere by changing channels
    and sometimes putting the interface back in managed mode

    PID Name
    580 NetworkManager
    736 wpa_supplicant

    PHY Interface Driver Chipset

    phy0 wlan0 88XXau ASUSTek Computer, Inc. USB-AC56 802.11a/b/g/n/ac [Realtek RTL8812AU]

    (mac80211 monitor mode already enabled for [phy0]wlan0 on [phy0]10)
    Then run airmon-ng check kill

    Killing these processes:

    PID Name
    736 wpa_supplicant
    Teh run airmon.ng start wlan0

    PHY Interface Driver Chipset

    phy0 wlan0 88XXau ASUSTek Computer, Inc. USB-AC56 802.11a/b/g/n/ac [Realtek RTL8812AU]
    (monitor mode enabled)
    Teh i found this command airmon-ng --verbose and got this

    No LSB modules are available.
    Distributor ID: Kali
    Description: Kali GNU/Linux Rolling
    Release: 2019.4
    Codename: kali-rolling

    Linux kali 5.2.0-kali2-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 5.2.9-2kali1 (2019-08-22) x86_64 GNU/Linux
    Detected VM using lspci
    This appears to be a VirtualBox Virtual Machine
    If your system supports VT-d, it may be possible to use PCI devices
    If your system does not support VT-d, you can only use USB wifi cards

    K indicates driver is from 5.2.0-kali2-amd64
    V indicates driver comes directly from the vendor, almost certainly a bad thing
    S indicates driver comes from the staging tree, these drivers are meant for reference not actual use, BEWARE
    ? indicates we do not know where the driver comes from... report this

    I can see that it can't see where the Driver comes from. I got it from GitHub https://github.com/aircrack-ng/rtl8812au
