I hope someone can answer my issue. I'm running Kali Linux 4.14.0-kali-amd64 (latest) in VM VirualBox v5.1.30. Host machine is Windows 8.1 and my wireless usb adapter is Panda Wireless N600 Dual Band. I have the Network setting in VM as Bridged Adapter to my internal wireless card and can successfully ping and execute airodump-ng wlan0 with results.
I never get an IP address for the Wlan0 interface either in ifconfig -a or by running the route -n command and can't figure out why. I can tell you that I have an all-in-one modem/router unit, not sure if that would be an issue. Ive posted in text below and x'ed out the mac addresses. Thanks in advance to anyone who can assist.
