Summary0006602: Raspberry Pi 4 - Re4son-Kernel - RTL8188EU (TL-WN722N v2) Monitor Mode not working
DescriptionCant't switch the TL-WN722N v2 Adapter to Monitor Mode on the Raspberry Pi 4.
Everything works fine if I use the same Adapter on Kali Linux inside VMware Workstation Pro.

Relating to this website the Raspberry Pi Kali Linux Image should inherently support the monitor mode for the RTL8188EU driver (TL-WN722N v2).
Steps To Reproducesudo airmon-ng check kill
sudo ip link set <interface> down
sudo iw dev <interface> set type monitor
