This question is an exact duplicate of:
I have a TL-WN721N Wireless USB Adapter and it has Atheros AR9271 220.127.116.11 driver version. Is it possible to send packets and set the mode to monitor with this adapter chipset? I read on a post and it said this:
Atheros AR9271: The Alfa AWUS036NHA is my favorite long-range network adapter and the standard by which I judge other long-range adapters. It's stable, fast, and a well-supported b/g/n wireless network adapter. There's also the TP-Link TL-WN722N, a favorite for newbies and experienced hackers alike. It's a compact b/g/n adapter that has one of the cheapest prices but boasts surprisingly impressive performance. That being said, only v1 will work with Kali Linux since v2 uses a different chipset.
I don't know if he referred to the driver version or chipset version. I can't find the information about the version of my chipset but the driver Atheros AR9271 has the version 18.104.22.168.
Also when I run
iwconfig wifi0 mode monitor it shows this error message:
Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06) : SET failed on device wifi0 ; Invalid argument.
And when I run
sudo airmon-ng start wifi0 it just gives me this and doesn't list any networks:
PHY Interface Driver Chipset
I am using a Kali Linux subsystem on my Windows 10 OS. Maybe that can be a problem?
