Will this wifi adapter work with librem 14?

I do plan on running pureos with boxes vm - kali and parrot os

if not will this work ?

For the first one … it depends on how much hassle / how much compromise / how much risk of fail you are prepared to accept. https://linux-hardware.org/index.php?id=usb:0bda-8813

On the other hand, your link says Linux kernel support. Maybe interrogate the vendor more closely.

Does not work the Monitor Mode or something in the built-in wlan card on Libre 14?

Looks, as requested, very negativ for AWUS036NHA on any Linux distibution. Anyway, archiv link for AWUS036AC_ACH_Linux_v4.3.14/driver/ on Linux (for rtl8821AU) is here: https://www.wlan-shop24.de/treiber-und-firmware-download. Closer look at AWUS036AC and AWUS036ACH files might help choose or not to choose (change current setup) any of those for L14.


I can’t answer if it works for the two adapters listed; however, as Quarnero suggested, the AWUS036ACH model works…at least it works for me. I’ve got it to work on both 2.4GHz and 5GHz, and monitor mode. There are some weird quirks I’m working through with the aircrack-ng suite, but it has worked so far.
