    Question wireless card cant be identified on kali 2018

    hi i am new to linux , i am sure this is problem of so many people , so please help me i really got confused .

    i installed kali 2018.2 on vmware , but in setting it show " not wifi adaptor found " !

    should i install backports 4.4 ? if yes how ?

    i tried to install backport by this command but i faced error .:

    cd backports-3.16.2-1
    root@kali:~/backports-3.16.2-1# sudo make defconfig-wifi
    Generating local configuration database from kernel ...Kernel version parse failed!
    Makefile:40: recipe for target 'defconfig-wifi' failed
    make: *** [defconfig-wifi] Error 1


    what should i do to detect my realtalk8821ae wifi adaptor ?

    Hi loyalroyal welcome to the Kali Linux World ,

    I don't think that backports will make any difference. With vmware you can't actually acess your hardware like you do in virtualbox, you can only make a bridge between your virtual card and your physical card but you can't use monitor mode for exemple.

    If you want to do that I advise you to install Oracle virtualbox on your windows machine then you lust install the extension pack and connect your wifi card in the usb controllers' settings.

    Follow this :
    install kali linux in virtualbox: https://www.blackmoreops.com/2014/04...on-virtualbox/
    setup your wifi card: https://unix.stackexchange.com/quest...-in-virtualbox

    Then if it doesn't work you'll need your realtek drivers for linux, just download them from any site or you may have a package in the kali repo.
    Check it with apt search realtek

    Hope you'll succed
    Tel me if you got any problems

    Just FYI, the numbers in the backports refer to the kernel version and in this case you are attempting to downgrade the drivers. So, there is no point in installing backports.

    What does lsusb says about that adapter?
    What does airmon-ng say about that adapter?

    Command#
    root@andriod369:~/rtlwifi_new# git checkout origin/extended -b extended

    What should i do???



    root@andriod369:~/rtlwifi_new# sudo make install
    make -C /lib/modules/4.15.0-kali2-amd64/build M=/root/rtlwifi_new modules
    make[1]: *** /lib/modules/4.15.0-kali2-amd64/build: No such file or directory. Stop.
