    WIFI drivers for Broadcom BCM43142

    I have successfully installed and partitioned Kali next to my ubuntu OS. The network option is not picking up any WIFI signals at all, there is nothing present.

    Does anyone please know what drivers are required to get my WIFI up and running? Has anyone had previous experience with the BCM43142 network card?

    I have done research but can not find anything productive. Any help regarding this issue is much appreciated.

    Thank you for the reply but these steps do not work for me. I am having great difficulty trying to get my WIFI to work. I can not upgrade my headers for some reason?

    I am having the exact same problem.
    The linux-headers for kali 4.3 cannot be found.

    This is really annoying.

    Has anybody fixed this issue?

    Greetings

    Hey, I have good news for you... I fixed this issue days ago so I will share the knowledge with you!

    First, add this to your /etc/apt/sources.list repository.

    Code:
    deb http://httpredir.debian.org/debian/ jessie main contrib non-free
    Now run this command

    Code:
    apt-get update
    And finally run this full command, when its complete restart your pc/laptop and you will have WIFI access.

    Code:
    apt-get install linux-image-$(uname -r|sed 's,[^-]*-[^-]*-,,') linux-headers-$(uname -r|sed 's,[^-]*-[^-]*-,,') broadcom-sta-dkms
    If you have any issues please let me know.
