Please Help !


Hello,

I have been trying to get the Wifi working for days now but to no avail. I am running Kali through a USB on my Macbook Pro Retina. I believe it has a Broadcom 14e4:43a0. Also there is no ethernet port on my Mac and so I am trying to do everything either offline or through USB transfer of files. Any help would be greatly appreciated !

Thanks in advance

WiFi not working/ Kali on a Macbook Pro Retina

In order to find out which broadcom card you have run this command and post the output.
Code:
lspci | grep -i network
Without Kali being installed on you Macbook; I'm not sure if installing the driver for your WiFi card will work.
I don't have much experience with Macbooks but I'll do my best to help you.

-::-Giving a title to your thread like " WiFi not working on Macbook running Kali" or something similar would have given your thread the attention it needs.-:-

Also I don't mind installing Linux on my Mac but the same issue ends up happening when I reach the Network Interface screen and it can' t find my driver so I usually skip that section and end up in the same predicament at the end..
