Im running Kali linux 64bit 1.07 as a guest os through virtualbox 4.3.12 r93733. Ive also installed the VirtualBox 4.3.12 Oracle VM VirtualBox Extension Pack. I have bridged my hosts network connection (Intel(R) Wireless-N 7260) with Kali and I have set up the Alfa 036nha as a usb device for kali through virtualbox.
iwconfig in kali gives no wireless extensions.
ifconfig shows my bridged connection and Local loopback.
lsusb shows: Bus 001...... Atheros Communications, inc. AR9271 802.11n
I thought that maybe it didnt have the right drivers so i tried to apt-get install firmware-atheros but it said that it was already installed.
I really dont know what I should do here.. anyone care to help me out? You should now that Im not too good with Linux etc.
Edit: I found this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K1ETBeRQBs4 Which helped me getting the Alfa card to work in Kali. The trick was to add a new custom USB device in virtualbox where you just take the vendor ID and product ID from the alfa device and leave the other boxes blank.
So now when i run ifconfig i get that wlan0 is up (Alfa) but eth0 is down (Intel(R) Wireless-N 7260).
Now however the problem is that when I plug in the Alfa device my network connection from my other wifi ceases to work (Intel(R) Wireless-N 7260) (the connection bridged from my host). It disconnects in the host aswell. If I connect to a wifi (with 7260) in the host with kali and alfa running the alfa stops working in kali... I want to have them both running.
Anyone knows how to fix that?
