Tenda U12 AC1300 wireless usb dongle under Kali (VM)


So I signed up for this online pen testing class, and the teacher uses Kali Linux in a virtual machine. For wlan hacking, he recommends using a usb wireless dongle with a Realtek rtl8812au chipset. I checked out wikidevi's page for that chipset and bought this Tenda U12 dongle wikidevi:https://wikidevi.com/wiki/Tenda_U12. Needless to say, the OEM doesn't specify which chipset they are using.
Also, Kali isn't playing nice with this dongle, I can't even tell if it has recognized it, anyways I can't make a wireless connection.
(btw. I haven't been able to sign up for the Kali forum. Confirmation e-mails never arrive. Admins aren't responding to PM or in IRC channel)

Btw this is the second dongle I've tried, the first one gave me slightly more to hold on to, but never achieved a connection either.

I hope I've provided all the needed information.
How can I find out if this has a chance of working?

Um. That's what I did first, of course. The assistants in the class' Q&A section are a bunch of useless ****, they clearly can't read.
I'll post you the thread to prove it if you're interested. After more than a week of posting back and forth, them asking a lot of information that I had already provided etc., the outcome was just "Your hardware is not well supported (just buy the one we sell in out store, shipping across the Atlantic is only more expensive than the dongle itself)".

Sorry. I was being a smart-a**
Based on what I've read/seen here at LQ, I'd suspect something is amiss with the VM networking configuration, but I can't help with that...don't use VMs (yet).

I don't see the wireless device recognized by either the host or the VM. I am not sure what ID 2604:0012 is at the moment.

A USB device can only be used by one system at a time, either the host or the VM and Kali can not directly access the host's wireless adapter. I'm

Ah, so it's not just me!

This is when I unplug the dongle and plug it only after booting Kali:

Virtual Box does recognize it.

However, what I'd really like is to figure out if this is even the chipset that I wanted. If it's a different one, maybe it's just no good for Linux. I thought all these hardware diagnose tools would help me do that, but just "Realtek 802.11n NIC" is not a lot to go by...

I see that is sort of recognized. As of 2019-03-20 20:34:05, 2604 is not a registered vendor which is why no other information is displayed in the lsusb output. Although the link you posted does indicate linux support which means that it might be in a newer kernel.

Does not Kali have a compatible wireless adapter page on their website or is it just by chipset?

I only found this from Kali people themselves:
https://docs.kali.org/installation/t...-driver-issues
but they seem to be making it all about aircrack-ng, which is not actually my problem, is it?
