Am I supposed to just copy them over or something? Solution: I found this site, , very helpful in solving this problem. Sometimes even after installing Kali Linux successfully, the Wireless Adaptor fails to install or detect by the Linux operating system and hides the WiFi from the Kali Linux Operating System. This tutorial help me out, but when I restart my laptop I got the wireless switch off again mine not using Fn key. Bad return status for module build on kernel: 3. This is what the broadcom-wl-dkms package is.
Or If somebody wants old and stable distro like debian stable and derivates is no problem. However at the end the Wi-Fi did now show up or work. In this particular case you are trying to add an Ubuntu restricted extras repo to a Debian based distro. But the wifi is not working in Ubuntu perhaps the drivers are not present , which worked fine in windows. I believe the module was built immediately after the installation but I may be entirely wrong. Solution 3 Execute the following commands in Terminal to get the resolution of your issue.
The whole state of broadcom wireless drivers is still a bit of a mess. If you're running Linux kernel. Before posting questions here please them first. This card also does not support injection mode to use aircrack, mac spoofing, etc. More about installing wireless drivers kali linux. I only feel so because I think it said something like that on the console. Has anyone fixed this issue in the current release? Monitor and injection works like a charme.
Update 2014-04-22 : Known to also work with Raring 14. Last edited by swaraj 2013-08-05 18:42:26 Anyone know where I went wrong in making the package? Preparing to replace wireless-bcm43142-dkms 6. My card did not work too i have Lenovo B590 with this script but using this program worke. Note: I assume that you know the basics of apt-get and cd commands. Done E: Unable to locate bcmwl-kernel-source I am running Kali Linux 3. I purge the old one first didn't have it and then I tried to apt-get install and this is what I got.
Last edited by swaraj 2013-08-06 16:42:17 Have you tried installing: instead? I'll let you know hoe that goes. The text leading up to this was: -------------------------- diff -Naur bcmwl-6. So I did the only sensible thing to do: searched the Web. I tried this guide: I have this wireless card 14e4:4365 and found that I should install bcmwl-kernel-source. If it didn't get built automatically, how do I do it? Where should I look to find them, and what are my possible workarounds? I am attempting to configure a new netbook with Kali Linux. Kalau sobat selesai install Kali Linux 2.
Now reboot the system and the wireless should automatically start working on reboot. It is really a great kernel, and graysky does an excellent job maintaining it. It's been a very frustrating week for me. This means that drivers will typically be more easily available or easier to install and there will be a wider selection of packages ready made for it than other distributions. This brings them up to support linux kernel 3. The only issue with the repo-ck module and your card is that I think that your card will actually require the v6 of the wl module, and I think that the version in repo-ck is v5.
My advice to you here is that rather than struggle to bodge bits of Ubuntu into Kali, you get an Ubuntu installation up and running properly and then add the bits of Kali that you need. I installed and carefully followed the instructions over at What I learned from this: rtfm for sure. It works fine in Windows, but so far, I had no success with it in Kali. It might throw an error Unknown symbol To get around the problem, we need to inert modules on which the wl module depends on which are cfg80211 lib80211. Hunk 4 succeeded at 3447 offset 7 lines.
Should I attempt to use an older Broadcom driver? Still I am stuck up with this Exec Format error. If it does, this post is for you. Seems like I will have to use an external device for this, but the internal device should be sufficient for reconnaissance. Done Package dkms is not available, but is referred to by another package. Processing triggers for initramfs-tools 0. This is because the package dependencies will be based around another distro and at some point you will wind up with one package demanding one version of a package and another demanding a different one. Selecting previously unselected package dkms.
After this operation, 1,417 kB of additional disk space will be used. All that happens is that the folders 'usr' and 'etc' are created, with a bunch of files inside them. I have never installed any drivers on linux systems, so i have almost no idea what to do. Also, whenever you encounter such errors, dont just search problems specific to your distro, generalise it with using just linux. Update: I reinstall Linuxmint 15 because somehow I feel something wrong in the beginning of my first installation. This method is unlikely to work out well even for those with far more experience than you. So is there any way for me to connect to the internet in ubuntu? Linux — a platform where you can actually do anything from basics works to penetration testing, hackings etc.
