VirtualBox Information:

 

I don't believe VirtualBox can currently give you access to your internal wireless card from within the guest. VBox will simply use your existing wireless connection and translate it into a virtual ethernet port, so as far as your guest (Kali) is concerned, you only have a wired connection. You will probably need to purchase a wireless USB adapter and give the guest access to that.

  • The ALFA AWUS036H should work fine with VirtualBox and Kali
  • Download and install the appropriate extension pack from https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads
  • Plug your wireless USB adapter into the computer before starting VirtualBox
  • Open VirtualBox and then navigate to: Machine -> Settings -> USB.  Enable the USB controller and add the adapter to the list (USB icon with a +). Devices in this list will automatically mount with VirtualBox
  • Start Kali and see if the USB devices are correctly mounted. You can manually mount the device by clicking on the "Devices" section of the toolbar and then going into the "USB Devices" menu.

You should now be able to access the wireless adapter from within Kali.

 

VMWare Player Information:

 

I don't believe VMWare Player can currently give you access to your internal wireless card from within the guest. VMWare Player will simply use your existing wireless connection and translate it into a virtual ethernet port, so as far as your guest (Kali) is concerned, you only have a wired connection. You will probably need to purchase a wireless USB adapter and give the guest access to that.

You should now be able to access the wireless adapter from within Kali.

You're probably seeing videos where people are using USB adapters or their physical computer. Currently, VirtualBox and VMWare Player don't support wireless virtualization. Your physical wireless card will always show up to the guest as a wired connection. The only way around this (That I know of) is to use a wireless USB adapter and let the guest access that.

 

Maybe I am not fully understanding you, though. You said you installed Kali using a "virtual machine player on a hdd partition". What exactly do you mean by this?

I'm afraid not. You only have two viable solutions to this problem:

 

  1. Run Kali on your physical hardware.
  2. Follow my advice in post #2.

I guess you could dual boot it, mess around with defragmenting Windows messing with partition tools.

Windows 8.1 and Kali Linux dual boot on UEFI mode ...

 

Or 

 

Try installing it to USB Stick/Drive, then you can boot your pc from USB Stick/Drive. Safer option IMHO.

Kali Linux Live USB Persistence | Kali Linux Official ...

You need to learn how to use aircrack-ng correctly.

 

You also need to start a new thread, But be warned we wont help you with WiFi hacking.

+1! :thumbup2:

 

We don't do that here, for the same reasons why we don't assist those who are running known pirated Windows/MS Office/Mac. Our standards are higher than many other forums are, hope that you'll understand. :)

 

It's kind of hard to assist w/out breaking that policy, advising in detail would certainly be crossing the line. 

 

Like other Linux distros, Kali likely has a forum for assistance, but even they go only so far, otherwise would be under the radar of Federal law enforcement (in the US). Other governments has their own rules as to what one can & can't do. It's illegal here to be involved with wireless hacking of networks of others, period.

Performing full disc images weekly and keeping important data off of the 'C' drive as generated can be the best defence against Malware/Ransomware attacks, as well as a wide range of other issues.

what else i do for the switching my usb adapter to in monitor mode tell me

airmon-ng

will tell your wifi cardname (wlan0) in most cases

airmon-ng start wlan0

will start the monitor interface (wlan0mon)

 

Nothing illegal about setting monitor mode, but as far as i can see that wifi device is

prolly not worth the 5 bucks you paid for it. leoxsys is not even listed on the aircrack site.

 

Like Cat said, the kali forums can provide more info than we are allowed to. Hope that helps.
