Forum Thread: Alfa Network Adapter Not Working on Kali Linux USB

Hi all,
I am running kali Linux with persistence from a USB, I purchased the Alfa AWUS036NHA for use with kali Linux,
I followed these steps to install driver
apt-get update
apt-get upgrade
apt-get dist-upgrade
apt-get install firmware-atheros

But when I run iwconfig the only one that appears with extensions is wlan0 which is connected to my home internet (so my internal wireless card)

I have also removed and re installed the atheros drivers to no help, also no light appears in the adapter itself

I have been researching it and ran

Cat /proc/version
Which is said it is version 6.4

Then

bcc — version
Which is version 9.2.1-17

Do these need to be the same and is this related to the problem?

Any help appreciated
Thanks
