This question already has an answer here:

I'm trying to configure a MacBook Pro Wireless Adapter in Kali Linux but all of the tutorials I've found suggest installing the broadcom-sta-dkms package, however as of yesterday it has been removed form the Kali rolling repository. I've tried downloading the .deb and unpacking it locally but I get the following error:

Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 4.14.0-kali3-amd64 (x86_64)

Is there another way to configure the BCM4360 wireless card?

The package broadcom-sta is removed from Kali repository on 2018-01-30 as the package information say . A temporary solution is to get the package from debain Sid repository until a new package which provide the wl driver will be available from kali repository.

apt update && apt dist-upgrade
apt install gdebi linux-headers-4.14.0-kali3-amd64
wget http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/pool/non-free/b/broadcom-sta/broadcom-sta-dkms_6.30.223.271-7_all.deb
gdebi broadcom-sta/broadcom-sta-dkms_6.30.223.271-7_all.deb
modprobe wl
