  1. Download the drivers at [Here]
  2. Type – “cd /home/kali/Downloads”
  3. Type “ls” (small letter LS)
  4. you will see ” compact-wireless-2010-06-26-p.tar.bz2 ” I have moved it to Desktop so it is not showing…
  5. Type – “cp compat-wireless-2010-06-26-p.tar.bz2 /home/kali/Desktop”.
  6. Type – “cd /home/kali/Desktop”.
  7. Type – ” ls ” to see if it is copied if yes you will see “compat-wireless-2010-06-26-p.tar.bz2 ” there ..
  8. Type – “tar -jxvf compat-wireless-2010-06-26-p.tar.bz2”
  9. Type – “ls”
  10. If it is showing “compat-wireless-2010-06-26-p” then its Done (this is a folder)
  11. Type – ” cd compat-wireless-2010-06-26-p”
  12. Type – “make unload”
  13. Type – “make load”


Now check if it is Done type – “ifconfig”

If it shows “wlan0” and “wlan1” then its done….

It will not show any wifi network if you do it on virtual box….
If you want to see available wifi connections in virtual box you would have to buy a wifi dongle as virtual box don’t allow linux to access wifi hardware…
