Need Help for USB Passthrough from OSX to Docker

Hi! Okay I’ve been searching the web for hours (no joke), and I’m about to loose hope. But I want to ask here first. I have an Alfa USB Wifi Adapter that I’m trying to passthough to docker. I can’t find the bus location anywhere!

lsusb gives me this:
Bus 026 Device 004: ID 0bda:8187 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8187_Wireless Serial: 00C0CA82C52A

system_profiler gives me:
RTL8187_Wireless:

          Product ID: 0x8187
          Vendor ID: 0x0bda  (Realtek Semiconductor Corp.)
          Version: 1.00
          Serial Number: 00C0CA82C52A
          Speed: Up to 480 Mb/sec
          Location ID: 0x1a120000 / 4
          Current Available (mA): 500
          Current Required (mA): 500

I just don’t know how to passthrough it to my container. BTW it’s a kali container. Can anyone help? Please? I’ll provide any information you need

Hi,
I am having the same questions, did you have any success with connecting your wifi dongle to a docker container ?
Cheers,
Cedric.

Hi! Unfortunately I never did, sorry :confused:
