    wireless adapter problem rtl8188ftv

    hi
    i am using kali linux 5.5.0 on virtualbox i got rtl8188ftv wireless adapter
    Code:
    lsusb
    Code:
    Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0bda:f179 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. 802.11n
    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
    Bus 002 Device 002: ID 80ee:0021 VirtualBox USB Tablet
    Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
    it didn't work in the first so i installed that driver
    https://github.com/kelebek333/rtl8188fu.git
    it works fine and it shows many networks but i doesn't support monitor mode and when i use airmon-ng i get an error that there is no wireless card
    Code:
    lwconfig
    Code:
    
    lo        no wireless extensions.
    
    
    eth0      no wireless extensions.
    
    
    wlan0     unassociated  Nickname:"<WIFI@REALTEK>"

              Sensitivity:0/0  
              Retry:off   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
              Encryption key:off

              Rx invalid nwid:0  Rx invalid crypt:0  Rx invalid frag:0
              Tx excessive retries:0  Invalid misc:0   Missed beacon:0
    is there any method to solve that problem and turn on monitor mode or suggesting any driver that supports it
    Code:
    ifconfig
    Code:

    Try putting "kali realtek 8188" into google and pressing enter. First link in google is this forum with instructions and up to date S/W. And did you bother looking at dates? You loaded a really old driver so it ain't surprising things dont work. Reload things to start fresh and follow the instructions. Just like you got told before.

    @willy19 hi i download the driver and followed all instructions in there but after installation there is no driver installed i followed these commands
    Code:
    echo blacklist r8188eu > /etc/modules/realtek.conf
    make
    make install
    modprobe cfg80211
    modprobe lib80211
    insmod 8188eu.ko
    @eyeflys i uninstalled the driver i mentioned when i found that it doesn't support monitor mode
    Code:
    root@kali:~# airmon-ng
    
    PHY     Interface       Driver          Chipset
    but before uninstalling it there was one more driver wlan0 rtl8188fu

    Then you didnt follow the instructions. not alot more to say. The airodump bug was fixed and everyone else reported it working great, and those instructions worked for me. You arent doing something right.

    I am having the exact same problem described in this thread

    I started with a clean kali install each time

    Out of the box, kali 2020.3 did not recognize RTL8188FTV adapter (can see it using lsusb but nothing in iwconfig).

    First attempt with https://github.com/aircrack-ng/rtl8188eus (everything installed fine, rebooted after install)
    -> no change -- wifi still doesn't work, can't see adapter

    Second attempt with https://github.com/kelebek333/rtl8188fu.git (everything installed fine, started with a clean/stock kodi)
    -> progress! the adapter shows up and I can connect to networks but can't put it into monitor mode

    It seems there hasn't been much progress on the rtl8188ftv driver

    Any help would be appreciated

    Hello guys, this is not a problem, som of the RTL wifi and Lan adapters are just not supported by all OS's, especially after 2019.
    Or their not completely software developed, which means, there have no modules for them, there have only for communication.
