Forum Thread: Enabling WiFi in Kali Linux 2017.2?

Does anybody know how to enable WiFi drivers in Kali Linux 2017.2 i have been searching a lot about enabling it but i have found nothing to resolve my problem. I see compat wireless site has changed a lot but i still don't know how to install those drivers from that site, can anybody help me ?

I do not really get the question. Do you mean that you do not have wlan?
So, type "ifconfig" in the terminal, and you only have eth0 and lan?
Lots of fake tutorials in youtube says go to the site, install the october 26th one and blablabla....

But it will not work. You will have Wlan0 and Wlan1 show up, but when you do thing like fluxion, aircrack-ng, it will not work(in the scanning part). Also, when you restart the machine, it will disappear.

To get it working, you need to buy one. See
