No more than 6 months ago I purchased an Alfa Awus036nh. After updating to kali 2020.4, it isn't recognized by Kali, Windows, Ubuntu, Tails, VM player, etc.

-lsusb and lspci does not recognize
-neither does iwconfig

I have tried to install rt2800usb, which, as far as I've been able to find out from research, is the driver needed. I also think I installed the firmware as well.

I extracted both by right-clicking. I attempted to use CLI, but I don't think that was successful.

I think that it be RIP Alfa but...

I'm wondering if I'm doing something incorrect, or not doing something, and if anyone has had similar issues, and if anyone can help before I Office Space it.
