Title: Need help for purchasing a aircrack-ng and kali linux compatible WiFi adapter
Post by: omkarparth on February 28, 2018, 04:14:42 pm
I am having trouble with my Broadcom WiFi adapter. The Kali OS is not detecting the adapter and also it does not support packet-injection.

In one of the similar topic post in a thread "mikeydee" recommended the Alfa AWUS051NH adapter.

Can someone please tell me that does this adapter or any other adapter have the following features:
Supports packet injection.
Supports monitor mode.
Tested for compatibility with Aircrack-ng
Designed for penetration testing.

Check the FAQ, it has a list of cards.

I own an AWUS051NH and it works fine as a pentest WNIC.

I don't know that any WNIC is "designed for penetration testing" - I just identify and use whichever devices work.
