Kali Linux: TP-Link TL WN722N V2 Driver Not Working

Kali Linux: TP-Link TL WN722N V2 Driver Not Working

Hello! I have installed the driver: RTL8188EU for the TP-Link TL WN722N V2 network adapter. The wifi works, but when I'm trying to run the command airmon-ng there is no PHY and no Chipset and when I try to run the command airodump-ng mon0 i get an error. It should work because the adapter supports monitoring networks. I'm running Kali Linux in VirtualBox on a Mac Book Air 2015. Here is the pictures of the terminal:

Keep in mind that I'm new here on the forum and in Kali Linux and thanks in advance :)

It seems your interface is called wlan0 and not mon0 To be honest, I like making my wireless adapter to monitor mode through this way:

ifconfig wlan0 down
iwconfig wlan0 mode monitor
ifconfig wlan0 up

Then you can check if it's in monitor mode by typing iwconfig

Cheers!

I have exactly the same problem. Let's hope that there will be a fix soon

v2 will not work, it has the wrong chipset. Only v1.

It will work. Monitor mode is supported on the RTL8188. AP mode is not supported yes, but monitor should be. I have a V2 myself and monitor mode works just fine. You need to have the right patches and downloads though. It's not worth the work i put in just to make it work, but it's definitely supported and doable!

Cheers!

Thank you for finding this! I retweeted it so more people can solve issues with v2

I'm trying to install drivers from days could you please help me!

To fully test this theory i would suggest using fluxion just to automate things.

Thus if that does not work then you need to gain more information on the network adapter you are using put a picture up for us all please :)

Im also trying to install the drivers... Could you please guide me...
Im also a beginner!

I am having the exact same problem, this is what appears after #iwconfig wlan0 mode monitor...

any help would be apriciated.
Thanks
