Realtek WiFi Issues

Briefly describe your issue below:

I’m having issues with WiFi. I have Parrot running in VMWare and I’m passing through a WiFi adapter via USB to the VM.

The VM sees the device, NetworkManager sees the wireless networks. When I try to connect, it will not authenticate, it tries to connect for a while and pops up asking for the password again everytime. I guarntee the password is correct. The same wifi USB passed through to a windows VM works without issue.

This is the info from lsusb
