    K indicates driver is from 4.6.0-kali1-amd64
    V indicates driver comes directly from the vendor, almost certainly a bad thing
    S indicates driver comes from the staging tree, these drivers are meant for reference not actual use, BEWARE

    NOTE:When i installed kali i was promted to find my Wireless adapter from a list, it said it could not find my wireless adapter.
    After this promt i was able to see my network SSID (while still in the instalation phase) and i entered my Wifi password and it loaded and got authenticated.
    When Kali was finally installed and i checked my wifi for networks i could still see my SSID but not connect, it was just loading endlessly until it later disappeared

    The mwifiex_pcie module needs to be blacklisted (= prevent it from starting during boot).

    Copy-paste the following command into the Terminal and then press ENTER:

    gksudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

    Using the gedit editor, please scroll down and ADD the following configuration line into the file /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf:

    blacklist mwifiex_pcie
    Using the gedit editor, SAVE the change to the /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf file.

    Then REBOOT and retest wireless.
