Yes, my issue is that i simply cant see nearby networks for some reason.

I can see them sometimes, but after trying to connect and providing the correct password then it just stops again and I cant see nearby networks unless I restart the vm. If I try to do airmon-ng start wlan0, it puts it into moniter mode and if I try to type airodump-ng wlan0mon it just doesnt find nearby networks for some reason.

Try re-installing the driver, it should work. It's a very common issue with new adapters.
