Internet Running On Browser But WiFi Card Not Recognized ???


O.K. I'm not a complete newbie, but I might as well be when it comes to Unix. I haven't used it in a decade and my knowledge was limited then. But I do remember basics like pico, grep, etc.

I got Kali OS up and running on a VMWare. I am using Win 8.1 as main OS. I also installed Tools.

If I click the browser on the desktop of Kali (graphic interface) I can browse webpages just fine so the internet is connected. I am not hardwired yet it doesn't recognize a wireless card anywhere? The only way it could be connected is the wireless card. It almost looks like it only notices a LAN card which would mean I'm hardwired? Maybe I'm reading it wrong. If I am how do I connect with reaver since ETH0 is not showing any devices ?

Anyways, when I run IWCONFIG, I get ...

Code:
root@kali:/# iwconfig
lo        no wireless extensions.

eth0      no wireless extensions.
However when I run IFCONFIG, I get ...

Code:
root@kali:/# ifconfig
eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:0c:29:ee:1c:c0  
          inet addr:192.168.59.128  Bcast:192.168.59.255  Mask:255.255.255.0
          inet6 addr: fe80::20c:29ff:feee:1cc0/64 Scope:Link
          UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
          RX packets:12 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:27 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 
          RX bytes:1913 (1.8 KiB)  TX bytes:2356 (2.3 KiB)
          Interrupt:19 Base address:0x2000 

lo        Link encap:Local Loopback  
          inet addr:127.0.0.1  Mask:255.0.0.0
          inet6 addr: ::1/128 Scope:Host
          UP LOOPBACK RUNNING  MTU:65536  Metric:1
          RX packets:16 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:16 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:0 
          RX bytes:960 (960.0 B)  TX bytes:960 (960.0 B)
So it is connected to the internet by eth0 here, which again makes no sense to me ...

I tried attaching DMESG too but it made my post 90,000 characters so I couldn't post it ..

I am trying to run Reaver so I need my wifi card to show up on Eth0 ... I can't for the life of me figure this out. Any help would be appreciated. I have been Googling for HOURS now. Spent about 5 hours so far this morning on it.

Welcome to LinuxQuestions.

You need to get a USB wireless adapter.

This is a guest system? VMWare just exposes the main interface of the host as ethernet interface in the guest.

I don't understand what is meant by Guest System, I've seen it mentioned on a lot of pages I've read though. I am logged in as root though.


As far as the USB card being required, is that an absolute must ? Internal Wireless cards never work ??

The host is windows. Kali is the virtual machine i.e. VM or guest.

Yes

So this won't work

"From a terminal command line, run the command vmware-config.pl , answer the prompts and when prompted, select the wireless network adapter as the primary virtual machine network interface.

Note: Changing this means that the virtual machine is only able to receive traffic from the host wireless network adapter.
In VMware Workstation, select the virtual machine, then:
Click VM > Settings .
Click on the Ethernet device in the devices list at the left.
Under Network Connection, choose NAT: Used to share the host's IP address."

If I can figure out how to do it ...

.................................................................................................... ...............

Wha about if I create a true partition and bootbale version of Kali ?

NM I just reread the insructions and that is basically what is already done ..

What about if I create a bootable version of Kali instead of using VMware though ? Would the wireless card be detected and usable then ?

Can not say without knowing something about your wireless hardware.
