I have just installed Kali Linux (64) on my laptop, but I haven't been able to get the Wi-Fi to work.

These are what I'm getting when I run the following commands:

iwconfig

eth0      no wireless extensions.

lo        no wireless extensions.

ifconfig

eth0: flags=4163<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST>  mtu 1500

Welcome Diego ! For RTL8822BE, Larry Finger has developped a driver rtlwifi_new. It works on Ubuntu and Linux Mint but not fully sure it will work on Kali (I do not have tested on Kali). Here the procedure to install the driver:

Install packages required for the building of the driver:

sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r) build-essential git

and then

git clone http://github.com/lwfinger/rtlwifi_new.git -b rtw88
cd rtlwifi_new
make
sudo make install

You can find more information here: https://github.com/lwfinger/rtlwifi_new You should check if this driver is compatible with your current kernel
