    I can't
    I Believe I am missing the drivers.
    http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/ath9k_htc/

    But how to install it?

    http://www.linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/ath9k_htc

    That page tells you where to download the firmware (ar9271.fw), which you copy into /lib/firmware to get the device working.

    This is unfortunately a bit complicated right now, as the firmware download locations have moved due to the kernel.org security breach. I'm too lazy to look for them right now, but I'm sure you can take it from here.
    This is from a post I fond .

    How do I ?

    I recommend you to buy an external wifi like this one alfa awus036h. This wifi works very good with Kali linux
