Issue with alfa AWUS036NHA and Mac


I am doing the ‘Ethical Hacking from Scratch course’. Early on it advises advises to get an external USB network adapter and recommended the Alfa AWUS036NHA. I purchased this but dont seem to be able to get it to work. My machine doesn’t even see it. I am running macOS Mojave (10.14.6) and can’t find a driver either.

Can anyone advise?



Hi, Can you try the adaptor on some other machine if you have either your friends or family’s computer? This way, you can be sure that the adaptor is not faulty. Also, when using the adapter for WiFi cracking or sniffing, you have to turn on the monitor mode.

I found this article where it downloads the right driver for Mac Majave 10.14
