    Question [Question] Wireless adapter compatible with Kali Linux VM, windows 8.1


    Hey guys,

    I'm new to this forum since I'm obligated to get a straight answer before I buy a wireless adapter.

    I'm new to Kali, but as far as I know, in order to have full internet accessibility, you need a wireless adapter. I want an adapter that can monitor, inject and do general pen. testing.

    I really cannot read specs from websites, so do you have any recommendations?

    Thanks!

    Is Kali Linux Right For You?

    As the distributionís developers, you might expect us to recommend that everyone should be using Kali Linux. The fact of the matter is, however, that Kali is a Linux distribution specifically geared towards professional penetration testers and security specialists, and given its unique nature, it is NOT a recommended distribution if youíre unfamiliar with Linux or are looking for a general-purpose Linux desktop distribution for development, web design, gaming, etc.

    Even for experienced Linux users, Kali can pose some challenges.

    Ziest, since you are using Kali I assume you must be an experienced penetration tester, I wonder if I could ask you a question..?

    I have a mixed-mode wireless network with Class-C subnets managed by slave routers. Due to the size of my site, my network is radially distributed using Ubiquiti Nano-stations as passive bridges. The UBNT units are in separate ghost sub-nets and set to pass through. Their SSID's are non-broadcasted.

    Would you say, in your experience, do the UBNT bridges pose a significant risk of injected attacks on my network? Should I add active firewalls to each bridge link on my server side?

    Another question, I restrict access to my site wireless network by WPA2 Personal/Enterprise encryption, and by elective MAC address filtering. Users are controlled by active directory. There's nothing of a particularly sensitive nature on that network, so would you say the level of protection is adequate or would you add a layer of physical authentication, for instance IEE-class smart cards?

    Would appreciate your advice.

    tongue-in-cheek?
    anyhow, i don't think this user is coming back.
    maybe they found a more like-minded community...

    Whatever community it is it cannot be Kali forums, they are sick and tired there of wannabe hackers.

    Yes. I thought it was hilarious. Took me ages to write.

    Interestingly, that is my actual network architecture, though.

    i was thinking more along the lines of random subreddits:
    https://www.reddit.com/subreddits/search?q=kali
    https://www.reddit.com/subreddits/search?q=pentest
    i think i'm going to read some of those now to get a good laugh.
