TP-LINK TL-WN722 Version 3.0

So first of all i want to say i made mistake, did not watch video first (WPA/WPA2 Hacking) before purchase of antenna otherwise i would know that version 1.0 si best and version 2.0 and 3.0 got disabled monitor mod. Anyway i do not think version 1.0 is still available on market. So my problem is I can’t enable monitor mod, so i can’t use Aircrack-ng. Anyone have solution for this problem?

Can you give me some tips on this, where should I find driver directory?
Is it /lib/modules/my version/kernel/drivers ?

@TrustNoGoblin Yes your current kernel version. Click kernel version to see what b/r/o STRIVE posted on YouTube on how to find kernel version. Then finish directions and load driver. After that come back and tell me how it is working.
/lib/modules/[kernel version]/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/
