I just installed kali linux in my dell inspiron 5240, while installation it says missing firmware and it surely of wifi networks. I then chose not to load it from my media as most probably they must not be there in the installation media.

So is there a solution to load these firmware after installation?

You need to install the firmware-iwlwifi package:

apt install firmware-iwlwifi 
modprobe -r iwlwifi ; modprobe iwlwifi

You should have non-free in your /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb http://http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main non-free contrib

Debian: iwlwifi
