Hi all,

At first i would like to apologise for my English :] I hope you will understand me. So let's start.
I'm new user of Orange Pi and i bought it for fun and some tests of my network. I heard that a Kali is really good for this and his tools work well with TP-LINK WN722N.
Right now im trying to enable the wifi, but without big success.
I was doing like they write in this tutorial
http://elinux.org/RPi_Peripheral ... pter_.28Debian_6.29
And i got installed all needed packages and drivers, but my USB adapter still dont work. Does somebody managed to run that wifi adapter? Below i put some logs.

Check your dmesg to see if you have the module, but it fails to load the firmware. Also, check if you even have the kernel-module for the adapter at all -- if you don't have it then you're going to have to compile it or hope someone will provide you with it.

I guess you have to build it on your own, see https://github.com/erickcion/tlwn722n-linux-install
