    Question Kali 2020.2 + ALFA AWUS036ACH

    Was hoping to get some help getting the external USB WiFi adapter working.

    What I've done so far...
    1) Installed Kali (2020.2)
    2) Installed DKMS through aircrack-ng/rtl8812au on github (running

    The WiFi adapter appears in the list when using command 'lsusb', however, it's not appearing when using 'ifconfig' or 'iwconfig' and I cannot see it as an option to connect to any wifi networks.

    What am I missing?

    Thanks in advance.

    the driver you can install with
    apt-get install realtek-rtl88xxau-dkms
    after reboot the wifi adapter worked on my installation.

    the only thing to note - it will not work as the usual way with airmon-ng - to capture packages (Handshake)

    sudo ifconfig wlan0 down
    sudo airmon-ng check kill
    sudo iwconfig wlan0 mode monitor
    sudo ifconfig wlan0 up

    than you can work with airodump-ng

    however, you wont be able to do the aireplay-ng deauth command
    it does not work with dualband wifi - i found no solution yet.

    but scanning and capturing is possible on both wifi bands

    Try this:
    sudo apt update
    sudo apt install dkms
    sudo apt install build-essential bc libelf-dev linux-headers-`uname -r`
    sudo git clone -b v5.6.4.2
    cd rtl*
    sudo ./
    sudo reboot
