    Lightbulb How to Make the TL-WN722N and TL-WN725N in Monitor mode in kali (Virtual Box)

    Code:
    sudo apt update
    sudo apt upgrade
    sudo apt install bc
    sudo rmmod r8188eu.ko
    git clone https://github.com/aircrack-ng/rtl8188eus.git
    cd rtl8188eus
    sudo -i
    echo "blacklist r8188eu.ko">"/etc/modprobe.d/realtek.conf"
    exit
    make
    sudo make install
    sudo modprobe 8188eu
    sudo reboot
    So this will install the driver

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------

    To make the interface in the monitor mode after the rebooting:

    Code:
    sudo rmmod r8188eu.ko
    sudo modprobe 8188eu
    Now you need to remove and reconnect the USB from the VBox, so in the left up of the window click on (Devices) then click on the USB this will remove it, click again on it so it will reconnect the USB to the VBox

    Code:
    sudo ip link set wlan0 down
    sudo airmon-ng check kill
    sudo iw dev wlan0 set type monitor
    This will make the interface (wlan0) as a Monitor Mode

    To make sure
    Code:
    sudo iwconfig
    This should show you the interface with (Mode:Monitor)

    Wow Thank you very much, you solved my issue.

    I have some questions though, do I have do go through all those commands to enable monitor mode?

    Besides, I was trying pretty much the same commands as you, but when enabling monitor mode I used this order:

    sudo airmon-ng check kill
    sudo ip link set wlan0 down
    sudo iw dev wlan0 set type monitor

    Which displayed this error

    command failed: No such device (-19)

    What could be wrong with it?

    no you don't need to download and remake the driver any more.
    you can start from the second block of code, and then remove the device and reinsert it, then run the third block of code, for me i make an alias as (mon1) that have the first code then i reinsert the device and the (mon2) alias that have the second code, this will make it alot easer.
    actually your command work fine with me when i use linux as a host machine but when i use it in the VM this issues will happen
