USB Adapter not getting recognised

Postby epicman25 » 9. May 2021, 11:44

I am running Ubuntu 21.04 as my main OS. I had installed Kali Linux on a virtual box. I have a leoxys-hg-150N wireless adapter. When I was on windows I used this same adapter for the virtual box. Now in Ubuntu, it's not even recognized as a USB adapter in a virtual box. I want to use the adapter for Virtual Box. Can someone help me?

Adapter- Leoxys Hg-150N

My laptop-Lenovo Ideapad 330

Note-I already has a built-in network card for the laptop. But for virtual box, it is considered a wired connection.I need wireless connection for my virtual box.

Carefully go through USB basics and troubleshooting. If you finish all the steps 1-7 and cannot get your USB device into the guest OS, carefully post the outputs of the commands in step 8 as text in [code] tags, not screenshots. Zip and post the logs step 8 call for, using the forum's Upload Attachment tab.
