Default WIFI Adapter Not Connecting To Kali Linux

I am running Kali Linux (dual boost from windows 10) with my laptop.
My laptop has a WIFI card and doesn’t need an external WIFI adapter to be able to access internet. However, I do want to use a WIFI adapter when running Kali Linux. My laptops main operative system is windows 10.
And if It helps, my laptop: Lenovo Yoga 720

Atheros AR9271
IEEE 802.11B/G/N
Long-Range USB Adapter

MY PROBLEM: I can’t get my WIFI adapter to connect to Kali Linux (the adapter is 100% working, have tried on windows).
I’m not finding the adapter while connected to the laptop
So how do I connect this adapter to my laptop (in Kali Linux)?
Greetings. And thanks for all the help I can get.

This should help: https://wiki.debian.org/ath9k_htc

dmesg | grep usb and look for your Atheros device to make sure Kali is actually detecting it.
