    Exclamation Problem with missing firmware and wireless connection

    Hello,

    I just installed Kali 2020.1 yesterday with an bootable USB and through an Ethernet connection. Everything was alright, I just got a "It may be missing firmwares ..." during installation, but I checked "No".

    After that, when I installed firmware-realtek package, I just got the following warning :
    Code:
    [W: Possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/rtl_nic/rtl8125a-3.fw for module r8169
    I serached a lot on the Internet and so I "enabled" non free in /etc/apt/sources.list with adding correctly the non-free and contrib to get :
    Code:
    deb http://http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main non-free contrib
    deb-src http://http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main non-free contrib
    So afeter setting up this access to the non-free firmwares I just update apt, removed firmware-realtek and re-installed it. Then I get exactly the same warning about the missing firmware:


    Code:

    I also searched directly for the file on the Internet but I can't find it. Could someone help me to get this firmware please? I'll need a wifi connection soon...

    Thank you,
    NVV

    Seems like a lot of people are having firmware issues with wireless on the last two kernal updates, myself included.
