I have windows 10 on my laptop and I run Oracle VirtualBox with ubuntu 14.04.5 LTS 64 bit on it. I bought tp-link usb to wifi adapter - TL-WN821N v5.
I am try to connect the usb to the vm so it have wifi and wireless functionality in it. in vbox there is option to connect the usb direcly to the machine so the the windows 10 dont detect the usb.
lsusb detect the adapter:

but lshw -C network
network *-network description: Ethernet interface product: 82540EM Gigabit Ethernet Controller vendor: Intel Corporation physical id: 3 bus info: pci@0000:00:03.0 logical name: eth0 version: 02 serial: 08:00:27:bc:0d:35 size: 1Gbit/s capacity: 1Gbit/s width: 32 bits clock: 66MHz capabilities: pm pcix bus_master cap_list ethernet physical tp 10bt 10bt-fd 100bt 100bt-fd 1000bt-fd autonegotiation configuration: autonegotiation=on broadcast=yes driver=e1000 driverversion=7.3.21-k8-NAPI duplex=full ip=10.0.0.13 latency=64 link=yes mingnt=255 multicast=yes port=twisted pair speed=1Gbit/s resources: irq:19 memory:f0000000-f001ffff ioport:d010(size=8)
lo no wireless extensions. eth0 no wireless extensions.
wont seem to identify the new hardware:
I thought the problem is that need some driver - so I tried to install the driver: http://www.tp-link.com/en/download/TL-WN821N.html#Driver but make give me syntax errors (and i think there easier way)
I followed this link
DLink DWA 131 wireless adapter not working on ubuntu 15.10
and when i run
apt-get install rtl8192eu-dkms
I get this:
Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done rtl8192eu-dkms is already the newest version. The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required: culmus linux-headers-3.13.0-32 linux-headers-3.13.0-32-generic linux-image-3.13.0-32-generic linux-image-extra-3.13.0-32-generic Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them. 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 12 not upgraded.
and it still dont work.
The laptop (and vm) connected to ethernet directly.
kernal version- 4.4.0-45-generic
