Virtual machines are useful. I believe you can set up a virtual machine on your Mac so you can emulate a Windows machine or a android (I am not sure about android but I will do some checking if I were you).

I would suggest reading up on virtual machines and setting it up so that you are anonymous, using a VPN is always a good idea. I would also suggest buying a Wi-Fi adapter I will link what I think is the best one after. See if you can use a café Wi-Fi or a public Wi-Fi so you're not locked into having you credentials known by the powers that be.

Nothing I have said is illegal. 

Edit: added link

As far as I can tell, this only supports 2.4GHz. You'll need a different adapter that can support 5GHz.

Edit: Thanks for the Gold.

No, the issue is that Tails uses an old kernel and many modern Wireless adapters aren't supported.

Buy an Atheros card, these are 100% supported. I'm using one of these which works in Tails (and can do packet injection if you ever become interested in Wireless penetration / hacking) :

u/ruining_our_ants · 2 pointsr/Kalilinux

Been using this for over a year. Zero issues. Picks up everything great and seems to come highly recommended from the Kali community. I also got the mounting bracket to clip it to the top of my display on my laptop, and a shorter 1.5 ft. cable to keep it neat.

Edit: I also use a Lenovo x200, 8gb DDR3L, i5 same gen and 120gb ssd. Love that little thing. My boss gave it to me after her upgraded and I knew immediately what I wanted to do with it.

You won’t see wlan0 wireless interface due to how virtualization works. Your real wireless adapter is being used by your host OS. Parrot receives that connection as ethernet - ifconfig should show eth0, that’s why you have internet connection.

If you want to have wlan0 interface you need an external wireless adapter and pass it to that VM in Vbox / Vmware settings. I recommend or TPLINK WN722N.

u/TonyDYA · 2 pointsr/hacking

Kali VM will not accept your laptop's wireless card. You need to plug the external wireless adapter. I would recommend this one

u/HBucket · 2 pointsr/openbsd

As others have said, OpenBSD isn't great as an access point. But if you are going to choose a USB device in Host AP, I recommend athn(4) devices. Specifically, AR9271 devices. I understand that the Alfa AWUS036NHA, which is popular with the Kali Linux kiddies, uses that chipset. But if you're looking to save some money, you can search for "AR9271" on eBay and find plenty of generic Chinese USB devices with that chipset. Though you obviously have fewer guarantees of quality. I have one of these adapters, and I've found it very reliable, though I've mostly used it in client mode rather than as a Host AP.

u/mo_10 · 2 pointsr/HowToHack

I mean, if you are only using it for Packet injection and wifi hacking etc. Id definetly go for the Alfa card especially the Alfa AWUS036NHA Ive got it and it does everything i need it to. but if you also want to use it for everyday use and you have internet speeds of over 70mpbs id say get another one if you really want to be getting over 70mpbs

i get about 75mpbs with ethernet and with my alfa card which is directly ontop of my moderm i get about 50mpbs

Your range could be limited due to usb power. Although saying that I previously used one of these to extend my wifi range, even though it's not really the main purpose.

There was a thread the other day about repeating wifi in the van. Spurned me on to buy a second-hand router to fiddle with. But there's also talk of travel routers so might be worth a read.

u/fang0654 · 1 pointr/netsec

From some quick googling, it looks like it may or may not work. The adapter itself has had several iterations. Some chipsets work, some don't, and you can't tell what you have by the outside of the adapter.

The usual is to get something like this:

u/TodayIsAGoodDayTo · 1 pointr/techsupport

No guarantee it would work well at that distance but a long range usb wifi adapter like one of these would be your best bet for wireless

u/B0b_Howard · 1 pointr/Kalilinux

Is your wireless card the one your host (the laptop/Win10) is using to connect to the internet?

If it is, it will only show as a wired connection within the VM.

There is currently no way to assign the wireless card to a VM as wireless.

You will need to use an external wifi card attached to the VM. It's not a bad thing as most inbuilt wifi cards don't have the capabilities that a decent external wifi card will eg. Monitor mode, packet injection.

(Edit to add...)

Something like THIS is perfect.

I'd go with an alfa card. Will work with linux out of the box and supports all 6 modes, including mater mode. It is high power and you can put any antenna you want on it.

u/[deleted] · 0 pointsr/linuxadmin

It all depends on the chipset, some support master mode for broadcasting a network, other don't. You probably wont get much luck with a USB wifi dongle though, I can't imagine that network strength would be too great.

However looking around the AR9271 chipset should work in master mode and this looks like a decent dongle.

u/GobblesGoblins · -1 pointsr/funny

Step 1.) Get the things you need:

A. You'll need a wifi adapter that is not internal that uses the right chipsets will help, personally I recommend one that uses the Atheros chipset, I've found that tends to work a little better. would be my recommendation.

B.) Pirate a copy of VMWare Workstation.

C.) Grab a copy of Kali Linux.

D.) Make a virtual PC in vmware and install kali linux as the operating system. It's pretty straight forward and you can google it if you have to, it's very simple and if you can't make it that far alone then I really don't want to teach you anything.

If you make it that far let me know. You probably won't.
