Currently I am running into an issue where I can't seem to find a way to identify which WiFi adapter I want to use as my primary in Kali (v 2017.1)
My laptop has a normal PCI WiFi card inside however I have a RTL8812AU USB 3.0 adapter as well. The way I know I'm using my internal is because I can only see the 2.4Ghz broadcast spectrum.
I am using the same Realtek drivers I use on my desktop which works fine, but unsure if there was an error here. It appears under
lsusb. I am looking for a way to perhaps identify the adapters and choose which one to use. Should both be showing up in
ifconfig under perhaps wlan0 and wlan1 or something similar?
