    problem when installing WIFI driver for broadcom BCM43142

    i spent 1 week and eventually got this link.
    http://www.kalilinux.net/community/t...k-in-kali.814/
    i followed each n every step in this fantastic tutorial for WiFi.
    i could not get exact output of some commands according to tutorial(perhaps due to different kernel) but hey eventually i succeed in changing mod to "wl" by "modeprobe wl"
    now i can connect to known WiFi but the problem is --> i cant use "Injection Mode"
    here are the details->

    root@kali:~# airmon-ng

    Interface Chipset Driver

    wlan0 Broadcom wl - [phy0]

    root@kali:~# airmon-ng start wlan0
    Found 2 processes that could cause trouble.
    If airodump-ng, aireplay-ng or airtun-ng stops working after
    a short period of time, you may want to kill (some of) them!
    -e
    PID Name
    2930 NetworkManager
    4293 wpa_supplicant

    Interface Chipset Driver
    wlan0 Broadcom wl - [phy0]mon0: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device

    (monitor mode enabled on mon0)
    root@kali:~# airodump-ng mon0
    Interface mon0:
    ioctl(SIOCGIFINDEX) failed: No such device

    Step 2: install wifi driver?..Be more specific.

    Just try installing linux-headers and broadcom-sta-dkms. (you already did as you posted)

    Then make sure wireless-tools package is installed (it should be installed. (aptitude show wireless-tools). If not, install it.

    Then remove the modules that might conflict : modprobe -r b44 b43 b43legacy ssb brcmsmac

    Then, load the module created by DKMS (wl): modeprobe wl

    See if it works.
