The blue light is blinking at my dlink , but it can't connect. iIjust want to be able to use WiFi.

  • Have you looked if there is a pushbutton or a slider that enables/disables wireless a lot of laptops and some routers/switches have those (two of my laptops have one in addtion to the Fn key to software switch the wireless (and Bluetooth) – Anthon Apr 11 '15 at 6:45
  • yes , its always on just the wlan0 is having problem to use wifi , so i use wifi from external . in windows its works normally . so i believe it should works fine at kali – santosamaru Apr 11 '15 at 7:04
