Hi guys. I loaded the official Parrot OVA into my virtualbox, in my linux mint laptop.
I have a Panda PAU6 adapter Ralink RT5372 and i am trying to make it work with parrot.
The adapter works fine and connects to my network if i use it in my host machine, but i can not make it work with the parrot VM.
The adapter is inactive in my host machine while i try to use it with the VM, not connected to anything and the Wifi switch OFF to leave it all for the VM, i am not trying to use it in Parrot at the same time it is connected on my host machine.
In parrot i can see the adapter and during the first seconds when the VM has been started, i can see wifi networks in the parrot graphical network manager in the top right, but then they all quickly disappear.
I try to scan networks with it and nothing is found. Check my terminal commands below… i try to put the adapter UP, but it keeps showing DOWN
Do i need a different driver in parrot or is it just an issue with VirtualBox?
Thanks for any tips
