    Wifi on Macbooks (Air/Pro)

    Hey guys,

    I first tryed to follow this tutorial since I saw multiple posts that said that it worked for them.
    The problem was that when I launched the dpkg command, I got some error messages (here's the log file) and when I restarted my computer, I still had no way to connect to a wifi network.

    If you're having the same problem, here's a way to fix it:

    OPTIONAL: For those who are using Kali as a live USB, make sure you have a persistence USB drive, if not follow this guide to make one. Otherwise, you won't be able to save what you did. Furthermore, to be able to have a working ethernet connection you will have to connect your ethernet cable before starting the OS. To be able to see boot options, keep pressing Option/alt key directly after having pressed your startup key.

    - First make sure your system is up to date
    apt-get update && apt-get upgrade
    - Remove the old wireless driver:
     apt-get purge bcmwl-kernel-source
    - Download the the latest source file and place it in /lib/firmware/brcm
    - Reboot and normally you will be able to connect to wifi networks

    I hope that helped some of you, please notify me if there's grammar/spelling mistakes.

    Hi, thanks for the guide. It took me around 8hrs to figure all this out myself... If I had found this guide it would have been a lot easier! I managed to get wifi working, but still I cant get monitor mode to work. So all the tools I wanted to use (aircrack, reaver etc) wont work. Do you know how to make that work?

    I posted a separate thread about the problem on a late 2015 mac book.
