    No network in Network Manager, Cant connect to wifi. But airodump-ng working

    I've just started kali for a month and just know all the basics. I have dual booted kali with windows using USB.

    I can search for networks using airodump-ng.But I cant connect to any of the network.

    Here are some commands:

    iwconfig
    wlan0 IEEE 802.11 ESSIDff/any
    Mode:Managed Access Point: Not-Associated Tx-Power=20 dBm
    Retry short limit:7 RTS thr=2347 B Fragment thrff
    Encryption keyff
    Power Managementff

    lo no wireless extensions.

    eth0 no wireless extensions.

    ifconfig
    eth0: flags=4099<UP,BROADCAST,MULTICAST> mtu 1500

    0: hci0: Bluetooth
    Soft Blocked: no
    Hard Blocked: no
    1: phy0: Wireless LAN
    Soft Blocked: no
    Hard Blocked: no

    and there is no wifi switch on my laptop

    Can you provide a link to that thread where you got that solution? Though you have successfully blacklisted the ideapad_wlan driver yet i still want to see the output of lsmod and cat /etc/modrobe.d/blacklist.conf.

    I get a simialr problem with my rtl8812au card when i use kismet, or similar programs. I think the issue is that kismet puts the card into monitor mode and gets stuck there ...if I close kismet then remove the card and reinsert it (or rmmod rtl88xxau, then modprobe it again) it starts working. Just a thought?
    Good luck.

    I was not able to find the conflicting driver but rtl8821ae can be one. It may be a legitimate driver of your wifi adapter but still give a try and blacklist it.
