i have just installed kali GNU/Linux rolling version 2017.1, using a vmware player, but having issues accessing my host wifi connection (I can only connect to the internet through NAT, but not through Bridged).

*things that i have done are...
1.updated the os
2.Downloaded compat-wireless driver and installed
2.follow several videos on youtube with no result yet!
the major issue am having now is whenever the wireless drivers are installed, and i type "iwconfig" in terminal i can see wlan0 and wlan1 but they are not active. and if i reboot the system and type again in terminal nothing will show...can anyone throw light on my path am just an old fool willing to learn
