    First U need internet, Get the internet by lan. Then proceed with the steps.

    Though, You are using 2016.1, update the sources.list by the following repositories:

    deb-src http://http.kali.org/kali sana main non-free contrib
    deb-src http://security.kali.org/kali-security sana/updates main contrib non-free
    deb http://http.kali.org/kali sana main non-free contrib
    deb http://security.kali.org/kali-security sana/updates main contrib non-free
    deb http://httpredir.debian.org/debian/ jessie main contrib non-free
    deb-src http://http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main contrib non-free

    After that normally install the following ..

    apt-get update
    apt-get dist-upgrade
    apt-get install -y linux-headers-$(uname -r) (Here U MAY get error, But proceed with the next command)

    3.Then, Install synaptic by executing the following:

    apt-get install synaptic -y

    -Then just open synaptic and search "bcm43142".

    -You will see 3 different drivers.
    broadcom-sta-common
    broadcom-sta-dkms
    broadcom-sta-source

    -Mark for installation broadcom-sta-dkms and install(or click reinstall) it.

    -Restart.

    The wi-fi card will show.

    Hope it Helped

    Detect your Kali architecture(32bit/64bit)
    and Download related driver form this link

    For BCM43142 download driver named "Linux STA 32/64-bit driver"
    and follow instruction here

    Note: This worked for me i can access wifi now.. IF THIS SOLVES YOUR PROBLEM PLEASE reply/inbox SCREENSHOTS OF COMMAND LINE
    # iwconfig

    because my wlan0 is detected as eth1

    This is How I fixed this problem in Kali 2.0 and Kali Rolling

    This is what worked for my dell 3521.
    I got this from the debian repository.


    1. Add a "non-free" component to /etc/apt/sources.list for your Debian version, for example:


    # Debian 8 "Jessie"
    deb http://httpredir.debian.org/debian/ jessie main contrib non-free


    2. Update the list of available packages. Install the relevant/latest linux-image, linux-headers and broadcom-sta-dkms packages:


    # apt-get update
    # apt-get install linux-image-$(uname -r|sed 's,[^-]*-[^-]*-,,') linux-headers-$(uname -r|sed 's,[^-]*-[^-]*-,,') broadcom-sta-dkms

    *This will also install the recommended wireless-tools package. DKMS will build the wl module for your system.*


    3. Unload conflicting modules:


    # modprobe -r b44 b43 b43legacy ssb brcmsmac bcma


    4. Load the wl module:


    # modprobe wl

    VMware Workstation 12 / Kali Linux 2016.1 / TP-Link TL-WN722N - USB WiFi Not Working.

    Hi,

    I guess this is a common problem; however I haven't seen a concrete solution to this yet.

    Background :

    I have Windows 8.1 on my laptop, which has VMware Workstation 12 installed.
    I have a Kali 2016.1 VM created ( from iso ).
    Now I am trying to use the TP-Link TL-WN722N Wireless USB Adapter as a pass-through to Kali Linux.

    I have tried installing 'backports-4.1.1-1' , 'backports-4.4.2-1' & 'modwifi-4.4-1' , but no luck.

    Any suggestions ?
