    Wifi problem

    Hi all.

    I'm completely new to all of this Kali Linux stuff (no previous Linux experience either).

    I'm desperately trying to get my USB wifi dongle to work with Kali.

    I've installed Kali 4.6.0 alongside my Windows O/S (Dual boot).

    My wifi Dongle is this:

    Asus USB-ac56.

    When I type lsusb there is a line where it says "Asustek company ... etc" so I'm guessing that Kali can "see" the USB device, but it does not work.

    I've tried installing the drivers for Linux with no luck
    I've followed Several guides with no luck.
    I'm getting very frustrated now and sincerely hope someone here can help me.

    If this is posted the wrong place, I'm sorry

    It was softblocked before, because it was turned off. Also, every time I boot up in Kali, the settings I made are gone (installing Compact wireless to get Kali to see wifi). I have to do this every time I boot up. And in case you're wondering, no I'm not running Kali live from a usb drive. I made a graphical install.

    I should mention that I've gone ahead and bought an Alfa USB wifi adapter, which I know is compatible with Kali, to "fix" this problem.

    what ever u do to config ur wifi
    and if that really helps to work with, I mean it goes to monitoring more etc,
    u can put as a script in bashrc of ur current user
    Create a file with this content:
    cat <<"EOF">> /etc/bashrc
    your command bunch here
    execute it, and every time u'll run Linux will do configurations for u.
    Of course if ur not using Live CD Kali of some sort )
