    Use wifi-dongle on VM

    anglaborg Lurker

      Hi,

       

      I have just started to use ESXi and are having some problems with my VM.

      Im going to create an AP on a Debian machine (like this for RPi). But Im not getting it to work with my wifi-dongle TP-Link WN722N.

       

      Is this even possible? I have been trying with few different alternatives but without success.

      My wifi-adapter is there when i run "lsusb" on host.

      Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0cf3:9271 Qualcomm Atheros Communications AR9271 802.11n

       

      For my VM I have given access to the USB-device. In the VM the interface is called "wlx6470022dc209" (why not wlan0?).

      Installed the firmware with: apt-get install firmware-atheros

      Using ESXi 6.7

       

      What information do you need to help me solve this?

       

      Thanks in advance!
