|0005887||Kali Linux||[All Projects] General Bug||public||2019-12-08 04:10||2019-12-10 09:40|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version||2020.1|
|Summary||0005887: Wifi Naming Issue|
|Description||I have done everything to try and solve this, but i just can't do it. The Atheros chipset has always been my go to, and now I'm mid lab having to wait for an update or look into another card. Disappointed.|
It was working just fine and then I finished the update and restarted my machine, and it started throwing the renamed line into dmesg. After the restart of the machine it preps you to re-log your credentials after already being saved and then refuses to connect. Digging deeper into connecting with the Atheros I found it drops (aborting is the word it uses) the authentication with my router after the first exchange.
Hope it gets fixed soon. The Atheros chipset is always a fan favorite for reliable injection and other fun stuff.
|Steps To Reproduce||Plug and play the Alfa Atheros chipset wifi cards.|
|Additional Information||Output from my machine:|
~$ lsusb | grep -i "atheros"

~$ sudo dmesg | grep -i "ath9k_htc 1-2:1.0"

||It's not only atheroth. I have dlink and Realtek adapters. And same story.|
This should be fixed with kali-defaults 2020.1.0.
To disable the MAC-based naming, kali-defaults is now setting up this symlink:
ln -sf /dev/null /etc/systemd/network/73-usb-net-by-mac.link
This regression is related to a change in systemd 244-2 that replaced the former udev rule with this systemd configuration file.
