Alfa AWUS1900 driver

Briefly describe your issue below:
I have a fresh install of Parrot. My only ways to access the Internet are either USB tethering with my smartphone, or by using my WiFi adapter (Alfa AWUS 1900). I tried to install the drivers the same way as on Kali but apparently, on Parrot the driver is already installed by default. So I do have the correct driver installed but my adapter is not recognized.

Any rtl88xxau driver initialization response/firmware failure logs? (only post small segments into posts- if you wish to share larger logfiles, please use pastebin).

I don’t know about failure logs, I don’t even know where are they if there are any.
