I already have the extension pack on virtualbox enabled. I also created a filter so the usb IS enabled. And whenever I start up kali nothing shows on ifconfig or iwconfig

I did type lsusb and it shows on there

Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 2357:010c  
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 80ee:0021 VirtualBox USB Tablet
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

It's the second one with the ID 2357.

Output of dmesg

I tried adding deb http://httpredir.debian.org/debian/ jessie main contrib non-free to my sources.list and typing apt-get update && apt-get install firmware-atheros but nothing has been really installed/upgraded.

As you can see it's recognized, but doesn't show up

There are 2 versions of TP-Link WN722N:

  • V1 (supports monitor mode and packet injection)

    Comes with Atheros9271 chipset, which is almost plug-n-play in Kali.

  • V2 (doesnt support both)

    Comes with Realtek RTL8188, which will cause You a lot of problems.

If you can, return V2 and find V1 on ebay or in shops (check model number on the bottom of the box)
