This question already has an answer here:

My Wifi-Adapter is TL-WN823N, initially my pc did not recognize anything. So i installed two solutions finded googling:

Now my Wifi adapter is recognized by the Kali-Linux system (4.7.0), but it does not work.

airmon-ng start wlan1

PHY     Interface   Driver      Chipset

null    wlan1       ??????

These are some commands that i launched to looking for a solution:

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • You need to install the ath9k drivers as this uses the Atheros card - This link will help you install them - linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/ath9k_htc Usually on the later versions of kali, this should be natively installed, but sometimes it is done manually, and the documentation should help you form the link above. – Luca Sarif Mar 10 '17 at 16:21

To help avoid this, I make the live usb, with Rufus on Windows and extract the Debian non free firmware to the firmware folder on the USB. Then when installing Kali have the wifi card plugged in. It should load the non free firmware for it.
