Every tutorial I read or watched about getting this to work with Kali in VM told me to check USB 2.0 in the VM settings. This allowed me to see the device in Kali, but it didn't work.
On a whim I switched the VM settings to 3.0 ( because my computer only has USB 3.0 ports), and it worked.
I also have it plugged into a USB hub that is USB 2.0, and that plugs into a USB 3.0 port.
Not sure if that will help others, but apparently the difference between USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 is a big deal when dealing in getting this to work with Kali Linux in VM.
I had a question and emailed the company, and they got back to me on the next business day. Also very good.
I have a MacIntosh, and while the web site clearly states that this device works with Mac or Windows computers, as far as I could tell the CD in the box is useless with a Mac. I figured out I needed to download the driver zip file from Alfa's web site (figured this out when I was watching Youtube reviews of the gadget). Without that I'd have been lost. Once I installed the driver, the little gizmo started working without any router magic incantations from me.
The company has a nice product, but they REALLY ought to include a note in the box to Apple computer users saying something like "Ignore the CD in the box. Go get download xyz from our web site". That would save some perplexity. If they'd done that I'd have given the device five stars instead of four.
SO why the loss of a star you may ask, well simply because the Amazon description is not truthful. You WILL NOT get the other 9dBi antenna! So the description isn't fully truthful.
However, if you want to increase network performance, a better wireless adapter should be bought after upgrading the wireless access point or wireless router. Doing so would usually yield better results for all users.
Are there any cons for the device? There really aren't any. I could only think of 2.
1. It's expensive. (go figure)
2. It doesn't support the newer 802.11ac standard. But, the device was made 3-4 years ago. So it would be unfair to count that against it.
Also, if you want to try penetration testing for wireless networks, this device works flawlessly. Supports packet injection, monitor mode, and great native support for Kali Linux. Or, you can just buy it for the amazing performance.
Anyway, the device itself is exactly as I expected (i.e. it does what it claims). Though, I will not be using the included cable or accessories because they are not 'to code', so to speak. Specifically, the suction cup mount point for the holder leave a lot to be desired. Specifically, suction. The suction cup suck [figuratively speaking]. I'm aware that surface matter, which is why I tried it on different laptop backings. It works very well on the smooth/soft-touch (faux?) carbon fiber surface that surround the keyboard on Dell's newer XPS models but I doubt you'll find a laptop using that type of material in a location where you would also want this holding 'cup' to be situated. Instead of wasting your time making it work reliably, find a proper solution. The device itself is a solid 5/5.
