I have Kali Linux installed on my laptop as a dual boot with Windows 8.1 and the pci wireless adaptor inside of my laptop (Broadcom 802.11ac) apparently is not compatible with either as I've spend weeks trying to find any information on how to get it to work. So I decided it would just be easier to order a usb adaptor from amazon and I was wondering if anyone had experience with this and knew which would be a good adaptor that is relatively inexpensive that I can rely on. Thanks! -Cade
I would reccomend going to the air-crack site as they have a great section on picking an adapter. Here is the link.
It comes down to a number of factors; price, compatibility etc. If you follow that guide you should be a able to find a great adapter that works for aircrack for you!
My personal preference is below :)
- AWUS036H – (Bigger size) $24.99
- AWUS036EW – (Smaller size) $19.97
Here is a picture of the one I have, it works great and allows for external antennas that you can add on later for greater range. It also has native linux support and requires no patching for packet injection. Works "out of the box!!!!!"
You can also consider :
TP-LINK TL-WN722N 150Mbps High Gain Wireless USB Adapter = £12
but the Alfa is the best :-)
