Which version of kali have you installed? (The latest version of Kali (1.1.0) includes some firmware and hardware updates)

Can you give us more info? Screenshots, etc.

i am new to kali linux ... and i have installed latest kali 1.1.0 version

my desktop doesnot have built in wlan card so i was using tp link wn 727n wlan adapter...on windows 7 it was working fine but i have no idea of how to install its driver at kali linux...

here are some specs of my wlan card.
Manufacturer: Tp-link
Model: TL-WN727N
speed 150MBPS

Have you tried to install drivers for it? Although it should work out of the box. Haven't tried kali 1.1 yet, maybe there are some issues, open a terminal and type iwconfig with the adapter plugged in. And maybe lsusb too.

Isusb: command doeesnot exist

lo no wireless extension

eth0 no wireless extension
