WIFI Adapter Not Connecting To Kali Linux

Hello :)

INFORMATION: I am running Kali Linux (dual boost from windows 10) with my laptop. My laptop has a WIFI card and doesn’t need an external WIFI adapter to be able to access internet. However, I do want to use a WIFI adapter when running Kali Linux. My laptops main operative system is windows 10. And if It helps, my laptop: Lenovo Yoga 720

MY ADAPTER I WANT TO USE IN KALI LINUX: Atheros AR9271 IEEE 802.11B/G/N Long-Range USB Adapter ALFA AWUS036NHA

MY PROBLEM: I can’t get my WIFI adapter to connect to Kali Linux (the adapter is 100% working, have tried on windows). I’m not finding the adapter while connected to the laptop So how do I connect this adapter to my laptop (in Kali Linux)?


Greetings. And thanks for all the help I can get.

Maybe try install kali-linux-wireless from the metapackages via hard wire

Also see if you can find firmware-atheros or ath9k_htc...possibly called something else in Kali or not in their repos.
