    Edimax ew-7811un USB wifi adapter on Kali Linux

    Hello, how do I get my Edimax ew-7811un USB WiFi adapter working on Kali Linux? I have the drivers for it, but can't seem to get it to work. I can probably try hooking it up to the Ethernet and doing to sudo command like I did with Mint and Ubuntu, but I wanted to see if there is a different way without hooking it up to the Ethernet. Here is the way I was talking about.

    Sudo apt-get install --reinstall linux-headers-$(uname -r) linux-headers-generic build-essentials git dkms

    git clone

    Sudo dkms add ./rtl8192cu-fixes

    Sudo dkms install 8192cu/1.10

    Sudo depmod -a

    Sudo cp ./rtl8192cu-fixes/blacklist-native-rtl8192.conf /etc/modprobe.d/

    Then reboot

    I have a rtl8192cu usb wifi adapter also. The Linux driver for this model is really controversial: some people say it works well, some people say it's good (checkout here). My suggestion is, if it does not work, do another already known-to-work chip...

    I have TP-Link N150 TL-WN722N Wireless High Gain USB Adapter for my kali linux system. It comes with 2 year company warranty. It uses Atheros AR9271 chipset which is compatible with Kali Linux.
