I am on Linux Mint 18.3 Sylvia, with the Cinnamon Desktop.
So, I have just purchased an alfa awus036ach wireless adapter off of amazon. I first attempted to install the drivers for it using
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install realtek-rtl88xxau-dkms
I spent some time searching onlne, but most of the questions surrounded kali linux. I plan on using the adapter in kali through virtualbox(I'm taking an introductory pen testing course), but I am assuming I need my main system to recognize the device before I go any further.
The Driver CD which came with the adapter does not work as the instructions claim either, so now I turn to the community! Any suggestions or support would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
