hello all,
currently having issues with running my kali linux box, i installed it on my machine and everything is running fine but it does not seem to recognize my wifi adapter (netgear wps).
I have tried different usb ports, rebooting my machine (it isnt a vm) and checked dmesg for any errors which only shoes an error on dev sr0 (which i believe is the cd-rom and shouldnt affect my wifi adapter). When i run the ifconfig it only shows my ethernet port as my only available adapter.

I pose 2 questions: why isnt my machine seeing my adapter, and what wifi adapter should i get for pentesting?
thanks all
