I installed Kali Linux 2.0 recently, and am trying to make the WiFi work. I was following this guide. However, when I get to the 4th step, I get this:

root@KaliDark:~# modprobe -r b44 b43 b43legacy ssb brcmsmac bcma

root@KaliDark:~# modprobe wl
modprobe: FATAL: Module wl not found.

Any ideas on how to go around this? It's the last step I think, to making this thing work.

I installed Kali Linux 2.0, on MacBook Air (El Capitan 10.11.1). And I have a Broadcom chip BCM4360 the a0 module, one that works with Debian.

  • The error message indicates the wl kernel module was not installed properly. The instructions you're following are for Debian current stable, not for Debian testing which Kali is apparently based on. Please run apt-cache policy broadcom-sta-dkms and dkms status to see if the kernel module sources are present and ready for compilation, and edit the outputs into your question. Then read /var/lib/dkms/broadcom-sta/kernel-$(uname -r)/log/make.log to see the error messages occurred during the module compilation attempt. – telcoM Aug 3 '18 at 8:19
