I'm running Kali Linux on VirtualBox and trying to learn some of its basics. I know it's based on Debian but I come from Windows so I'm new to Linux and networking in general.
My problem is that while I already connected Kali to the Internet and used Iceweasel many times, now, after some manipulations I did on the terminal, I can't reach the Internet anymore, even if I connect to my wifi network.
I tried the following:
$ ping www.google.com ping: unkown host google.com $ ping 126.96.36.199 connect: network is unreachable $ cat /etc/network/interfaces cat: /etc/network/interfaces: Permission denied
I think my virtualbox settings are ok because I already surfed the internet before this problem came on but here are the settings. I use a bridged mode on wifi intel(R) 5100agn in advanced tab I have all allowed and I use a usb ralink wifi adapter linked to the virtual machine.
Here is an image of the output of ifconfig -a
keep updating and here is the result of " cat /etc/network/interfaces " and " route -n"
After changing the vbox settings from bridged to nat nothing changed -- still don't have an ip adress.
