Summary0006123: Bettercap failing to set tx power on rtl88xxau based chipsets
DescriptionIn the later version of the rtl8812au drivers such as v5.6.4.2 it seemed to stop working with iwconfig. Bettercap was updated to fix this some time ago. Due to this, its unable to actually start. Tried with the latest version and it works fine.
Steps To ReproduceInstall bettercap from the kali repo
Install rtl8812au driver from aircrack-ng
run bettercap
Additional InformationVerified that it was fixed with bettercap v2.26.1 (built for linux arm64 with go1.13.8) on raspberry pi 4

Just looking now and it seems they didnt change the version number. However, the latest version from their github solved the issue.
