USB Wireless adapter (AWUS036ACH) not connecting to network

I just purchased the Alfa AWUS036ACH wireless adapter, and installed it. It connects in Windows 10, but I can’t get it to connect to the same network in the Kali VM. I use the same network credentials in the VM that I use in Windows to connect to the same network, but the network (Orbi router) refuses to authenticate when trying to connect from Kali. I’m likely overlooking something, but I’ll be damned if I can figure out what it is. The network connect dropdown lists my router as expected, and everything appears normal. The Kali Devices menu lists ‘Realtek 802.11n NIC’. I’ve tried first disconnecting the wired connection, but it doesn’t change anything.
Stuck again!

Just noticed something else … When the Kali VM is running, the wireless adapter is blocked in Windows. I actually wondered about this but would expect the adapter to be connected to the network when blocking Windows. So the scenario is Kali is on the network via the wired connection, and the Windows wireless connection is not functional. When I shutdown the VM, the wireless adapter operation returns to normal.
