Multi-channel 802.11 captures using a Kali Linux virtual machine


This is a tutorial on how to setup a Kali Linux virtual machine (VM) using Oracle’s VirtualBox for taking multi-channel captures with multiple wireless adapters. While I use the TP-Link Archer T9UH adapter, there any many other options available, so long as the chipset is available for Kali and supports monitor mode. See the notes section at the end for more information.

What you'll need:
  • PC/laptop with Windows (I used Windows 10)
  • VirtualBox (get it here)
  • VirtualBox Extension Pack (get it here)
  • Kali OVA for VirtualBox (get it here)
  • TP-Link Archer T9UH wireless adapters (buy here)
  • USB hub (optional)
