I am using a laptop running windows and vmware with Kali linux 2.0. I wanted to use a usb network adapter in order to perform a mitm attack as this didn't work with my normal interface eth0. Nevertheless I do succeed in using the adapter to connect to my wifi on windows but when using Linux the wlan0 doesn't succeed in getting an IP address. When I manually turn it on it keeps asking for an IP but no IP is given. Does anyone know how this can be solved?
