I have Windows, and that's all I can get online with right now. When I open Software Sources again I find that my wifi adapter is not enabled. You have to find out, what you like best. First thing I did was open the Driver Manager to find out if the wireless adapter was installed properly. Martin, I am recommending Linux Mint 17. It is best to start with the default configuration and modify it if needed. I have tried a few other threads to no avail.
Ok well I clearly get the picture here folks. I am curious as to what led you to believe Kali was a good choice for beginners - it is anything but. Did you reboot after yum update? Advertising revenue is falling fast across the Internet, and independently-run sites like Ghacks are hit hardest by it.

If we didn't do this then every time a new kernel was installed the driver would get compiled for the previous kernel the one that was running at the time of installation. Also I'm reading KaliLinux Revealved front to back as well as taking the free course online so I'm doing to best I can on that front.
The additional permissions of the root account are not needed until you are ready to install the kernel. I can test no further since I haven't the device. However, further search lead me here: , which lead me here:. First, some problems with your question: You need to state the exact name of your Linux distribution and the version. Building and loading the is a great way to test that everything is in order before moving on to build the driver. If you like our content, and would like to help, please consider making a contribution: The first thing I test when I am deciding which distro to install is the wifi.
A tar file is just an archive of other files. Unfortunately the Netgear A6100 did not work, and a little research showed this particular device was not on the list. So if you run updates in the future and it stops working, try running those commands again and it should fix the problem. Rather than consult the lists and order one online the right thing to do I let my impatience get the better of me and grabbed a Netgear A6100 while passing through local electronics store. In my case I needed a wifi adapter for my new Raspberry Pi 2. I searched in the Software Manager for a driver for the Netgear A6100, but nothing came up. Unfortunately, my first web search led me to source code which I downloaded and compiled, but it did not work.
Most modern distros have a great driver base but first check here to see if your hardware is supported: After you plug in t he device, you may need to follow this great troubleshooting guide, if your device isnt automatically recognized:. So I have read your replies and thank you for them. In order to build a device driver you first need to have the source code for your running kernel. The installation of the Linux distribution wentfine. The bottom part of this post says that if you download an updated version of the Linux Kernel, you might need to run those commands again. Luckily, good compatible adapters are very cheap.
To answer the questions 1 for the person who is looking for the output, I posted I am no longer using Parrot so facepalm I can't show you.

Now back to installing proper driver for my adapter. So, one option to grab the right drivers is to connect the Linux device via a wired cable to the Internet.
