ALFA AWUS036ACS driver install on Kali Linux 2020
I recently planned to do a series of articles on the different methods one can use to hack wireless networks ( wifi ), using tools such as, but not limited to aircrack-ng, Wireshark, wifite, hashcast and others using ALFA AWUS036ACS.
However, before we start and jump into all that, we need to have a specific wireless adapter that supports monitor mode and packet injection. I decide to get my hands on the ALFA AWUS036ACS Network adapter, but some work was needed to get the drivers installed.
