So, I asked a bit ago on how to make a udev rule to block certain USB devices. However, I need to achieve something like this with wireless USB adapters.
I have a wireless USB adapter from EDIMAX that's a Realtek chipset. I have it in my system for a Kali VM running inside of VMware Workstation, but I want to make it available only to the VM. Having said that, it is on my computer all the time, and I want Ubuntu to not be able to 'use' it as a network card, and only want it used by the VM.
The tricky part: I need to isolate this wifi adapter specifically from being used, while all others are fair game to the system / Network Manager. This one is dedicated for use in a VM, NOT by the host OS, Ubuntu 14.04.
I'm thinking a udev rule to prevent it from being used as a network adapter by Ubuntu is the way to go, but I am not sure how to do this or if this is the method to go. Thoughts on how I can achieve this?
The system I am trying to achieve this on is Ubuntu 14.04.
