Network adapter not showing any nearby network

Briefly describe your issue below:
Hello everyone, I recently installed parrot linux with Vmware but I have a problem with the USB adapter as it doesn’t show any available networks. The USB is bridged from VMware.
Any help is appreciated. :]

What version of Parrot are you running? (include version (e.g. 4.6), edition(e.g. Home//KDE/OVA, etc.), and architecture (currently we only support amd64)

  • Version: 4.7
    Edition: Security Edition
    Architecture: amd64
    What method did you use to install Parrot? (Debian Standard / Debian GTK / parrot-experimental)
  • Debian Standard
    Configured to multiboot with other systems? (yes / no)
    Dual boot with Vmware
    EDIT: It’s not Vmware, it’s Virtualbox
    List your networking hardware (make, model, firmware version):
  • TP Link

You scan wireless networks with a virtual network interface which is what you have by default when you’re in a virtual machine. VM’s only create virtual ethernet(wired) network interfaces, only a usb passthrough can connect a wireless adapter to a VM. Review VMware’s extensive documentation on how to do this. That or you will have to install on a real machine or make a live usb if you want to interact with real wireless networks.

I’m sorry for the misunderstanding. It wasn’t Vmware, it’s actually Virtualbox.
