This question already has an answer here:
I have installed Kali Linux on my T100 Transformer Book (laptop). And have not been able to connect to wifi. I am brand new at Kali and don't know much at all about it. Also I have Windows 8.1 but it got deleted in the installation of Kali. So just Kali Installed. No VM. And I have no ethernet port.
Things I have tried:
Going to icon at the top right. It has no WiFi option or anything like it.
ifconfigin terminal shows only
lo. And yes I am administrator.
Using an external USB dongle. On other computers it works and lights up green but nothing when I plug it into Kali. Not even the green light. And the USB port works with other devices.
A lot of other things I have tried online. Just commands and things. Nothing works.
Laptop - Asus T100 Transformer book
Wireless Protocol - 802.11a/b/g/n
External USB WiFi Dongle - TP-LINK AC1200 Wireless Dual Band USB
Adapter Model: T4U
Edit: I just tried on another external USB wireless dongle and it worked. However, I transport this laptop around all the time and the Dongle is huge.
