Why is it so difficult to enable WiFi on kali. I have googled and search this thread and that. My internal and usb wifi not detect. NetworkManager is running and iwlwifi driver is install. I have visited many web sites supposedly have solved this problem but no useful info. Can anyone steer me in the right direction? right clicking top right corner just enable networking not working. My wireless button is amber so I know something off. I check bios and wifi is check on.

Still strugling with same issue after moving to Kali Rolling releases... (maybe Kali 2 don't remember though)...
One test suggestion as a workaround this iwlwifi issue :

Try adding this kernel boot parameter : intel_iommu=off


On a terminal type
sudo nano /etc/default/grub
the grub conf file should show after modification something like that
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet intel_iommu=off"
Save, close, check...
Then type
update-grub
Then restart...


If issue is solved ... then it could be interesting to highlight this to Kali Dev team to know if they can find something to fix this in the rolling release

try to add intel_iommu=off to your kernel boot parameters
