May 28, 2019

In our latest video guide, see how to install Alfa AWUS036ACH or AWUS1900 on Kali Linux 2019.2 with monitor mode & injection support.

This also works for AWUS036AC.

Edit 3/6/2020: We have confirmed the driver and install process shown in the video also works great on the newest Kali release, 2020.1.

How do you install on fedora 32 or centos 8? You guys should just make a flatpak it would be so much easier for everyone using linux.

I’m running Kali linux on my laptop
Not through a VM

I extracted the driver , renamed the folder and got into the terminal. I got as far as to get into the rt directory, however cannot run the dkms-install command. It says that command cannot be found
What do I do ?

I have exact problem as Zach Farris does running Kali Linux in surface 3 and I got as far as make.
make ARCH=x86_64 cross_compile= -c/lib/modules/5.7.0-kalil-amd65/amd64/build M=/root/Desktop/rt modules
make1*/lib/modules/5.7.0-kalil-amd64/build:No such file or directory. stop.
*[Makefile:2246:modules] Error 2
