Forum Thread: Raspberry Pi3 but No Monitor Mode :(

Hi guys,

I bought a Raspberry Pi 3 put Kali Linux on a SD Card and everything works well.
But when I want to start monitor mode it doesn't work.

What I see is:
PHY: null
Interface: wlan 1
Chipset: Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8188RU 802.11n WLAN Adapter

On my Pc is under Driver a name listed but here is only ??????
How can I install the right driver for my adapter?

Are you using the default pi 3 card or did you put another one? The one that comes with the pi 3 is not compatible with monitor mode.

The Raspberry Pis use Broadcom adapters, which don't support mon mode. A good adapter to use is the Panda Wireless adapter, on Amazon for about $15. For Kali on the Pi, it does not need setup and its pretty fast (300mbps)

Hi guys

I bought a TP-Link TL-WN722N and it works very well.
I can recommend the adapter.
