Install Driver


Hi Everyone, I am a newbie in Linux, and I am trying Kali Linux as my project wants to. I bought a D-Link DWA-182 Wireless Adapter and I found the Installer Package, may I know how to install the driver as Kali Linux only recognized everything as "Wired Connected". There are no WLAN option. Sorry for my bad English. I used Kali Linux in Oracle VM Virtualbox. If I had put to the wrong section, please do not hesitate to let me know so that I will delete the post.

Is there any particular reason why you'd like to have the USB wifi device explicitly configured/controlled via the guest? Normally, the host is responsible for network connectivity, and you can configure the virtual networking for the guest to suit your needs via VBox > Machine > Settings > Network. For example, I'm using bridged networking. My Windows 7 host is currently connected to a wireless router, but my VM guest sees a virtual ethernet NIC.

Hi, I need to enable my WLAN option as I need to scan WiFi for my project about hacking a WiFi. So I think I need to install a driver to get me start for searching WiFi available.

Did you allow USb pass through on the guest?

If you really want the wireless device exposed to the guest, then this youtube video will show you how. It involves configuring the USB device filters first. (I've only ever needed do that for the odd memory stick or for access to my iPhone.)

you also might want to read the kali troubleshoot page on wireless

seeing as kali is a VERY special and SINGLE purpose OS ( covert pen testing )
http://docs.kali.org/installation/tr...-driver-issues

And READ!!! " should i use kali"
http://docs.kali.org/introduction/sh...use-kali-linux
and this part
"Is Kali Linux Right For You?"

Hi...

Please do not make multiple threads across the forums for the same topic. I've asked the other one at the link below be closed...

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...er-4175582131/

I didn't understand exactly, do you have Kali installed on a VM now? If not and it's installed directly to the hard drive, I'll need more information about your adapter before I/we can give you any further help. If this is a USB adapter, with the device plugged in, please open a terminal and post the results of these commands...

Code:
lsusb
Code:
lsmod
Code:
iwconfig
If this is a laptop, please also include...

Code:
rfkill list
If you're using a VM, please disregard the above and follow the instructions from the others.

Also, what installer package did you you use and were there any error messages when you tried using it?

Also, you can find additional driver information here.

Regards...

Hi Everyone, firstly I feel sorry if I make any inconvenience for having 2 threads at different sites.
I am using Kali Linux on Oracle VM Virtualbox 5.0.20 now. My wireless adapter is D-Link DWA-182 Wireless AC1200 Dual Band USB Adapter.
I am using Kali Linux 2016.1.amd64 currently.

Hi...

To make that work, you may need to install Kali to your hard drive. VM's work differently.

NOTE: 90% of wireless issues reported to us are due to people not reading the aircrack-ng documentation. You need to run airmon-ng check kill before putting your card in monitor mode.

Hi...

According to this page, there doesn't appear to be any native Linux drivers for your adapter. You will need to compile and install the drivers. Although I can't guarantee they will work, you can try installing them using the instructions mentioned by chili555 here.

Also, I cannot guarantee these drivers will allow your device to work in monitor mode. According to the page that John VV provided, most likely they won't.

Regards...
