I have installed Kaliv2 64bit (all packages updated) on vmware and I want to connect to internet with usb wlan (tp-link wn722nn) so I don't use virtual vmware network and just connect directly to my usb wlan (removable devices) but:

  1. I can not find any network icon in the top panel like the depicted picture

    enter image description here

    enter image description here

    I tried to reinstall network manager but nothing happened

    sudo apt-get install -d --reinstall network-manager network-manager-gnome
    sudo apt-get install wicd-gtk
    sudo apt-get remove network-manager-gnome network-manager
    

    then reboot it ]

  2. I have connected to internet like below but whenever I reboot the os I should do it again to be able using internet

    ip link set wlan0 up
    iw wlan0 link
    iw wlan0 scan
    wpa_passphrase ssid-name  >> /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
    wpa_supplicant -B -D wext -i wlan0 -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
    dhclient wlan0
    sudo /etc/init.d/samba stop
    sudo /etc/init.d/samba start
    

PS. my kali used to worked correctly !! dmesg output for usb

  • what is the content of your /etc/network/interfaces? – Rui F Ribeiro Nov 18 '15 at 14:13
  • I edited my post Rui. – Mohammad Yousefi Nov 18 '15 at 14:21
  • please uncomment the last two lines, and do /etc/init.d/networking restart – Rui F Ribeiro Nov 18 '15 at 14:23

We reached to the conclusion that uncommenting the wlan0 and adding a directive to run the wpa_supplicant, worked. Please note that having dhcp in the interface already makes the dhclient invocation.

auto wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
    wpa-conf /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf

I gave you the technically correct answer, and as usual I have got a "better answer", the questions you should have asked.

Using kali, I would venture to say it is not the best idea to use that pen for Internet. You would use the ethernet of the VM (eth0) to have internet (it does not matter whether the real machine has eth0 or wifi, eth0 in the VM will use the Internet connection)...and that pen you have will be of far better use either to manufacture packets or as hostap to attract PCs to connect to it. After all, that is probably why you bought a special pen like that for Kali.

I will leave to you as an exercise to configure eth0 and bridge or NAT in vmware.
