Alfa AWUS036ACH packet injection now supported in Kali 2017.1 release

May 11, 2017

Kali Linux recently announced that packet injection is now supported in release 2017.1 for the Realtek RTL8812AU 802.11ac chipset, which is found in Alfa USB Wi-Fi models AWUS036ACH, AWUS036AC, and AWUS036EAC. According to their web site:

"A while back, we received a feature request asking for the inclusion of drivers for RTL8812AU wireless chipsets. These drivers are not part of the standard Linux kernel, and have been modified to allow for injection. Why is this a big deal? This chipset supports 802.11 AC, making this one of the first drivers to bring injection-related wireless attacks to this standard, and with companies such as ALFA making the AWUS036ACH wireless cards, we expect this card to be an arsenal favourite."

This announcement is extremely awesome in that it makes these products the first 802.11ac USB products capable of injecting in Kali Linux. Pick up yours today for a low price.

Hi Jesus, there is no difference. The reason we have 2 buying pages for it is we are trying some different wording to see which gets better results in search engines.

What plug and play driver does this use? I am looking for one that does NOT use the rt2800usb driver, whether in managed, or monitor mode. If you know of any others, including this one, that do NOT use the rt2800usb driver for monitor mode and packet injections please let me know.
