Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Is there a way to update my kernel version? Or find the corresponding source to the current kernel version?

First Installation: checking all kernels...
Building only for 3.18.0-kali1-amd64
Module build for the currently running kernel was skipped since the
kernel source for this kernel does not seem to be installed.
The kernel source is the actual source code used to compile the kernel. Programs such as kernel modules use information from the source so they can communicate with the kernel.
The dpkg command has a number of switches. http://www.cyberciti.biz/howto/quest...heat-sheet.php
It may be better to use 'dpkg -r' to remove the packages you have installed, then install linux-source, dkms, broadcom in that order. Probably overkill, but starting clean gives confidence.
Still nothing and it said there was nothing to remove since nothing saves after every time I shutdown. So even if this were to work, would I have to do it each time I log into Linux or is there a way to make all my changes permanent? The USB is 64 GB so there is plenty of space and also I usually choose the persistence option.
The problem you have is that this is all meant to happen automagically with an internet connection. The package manager keeps everything up to date and in sync.
Perhaps try the other linux-source-3.18_3.18.6-1~kali1_all.deb package. It might be the one to use for your AMD.
Okay i'll give it a go. I'm guessing the best way to go about this would be to somehow get a wired connection going? I'd need a USB to ethernet adapter for that and even then i've read that you need the wired drivers to get that working :/
You say that you have been at this for a few days. Apparently kali ony keeps the latest versions in the repositories. Any chance that your kernel version is earlier than the Feb 24? If so, you will need a kernel version upgrade to match the source. Perhaps 'dpkg -l | grep -i linux' will help.
I think I'm going to head to bed for tonight and maybe tomorrow we can continue unless you think we've exhausted all our options. I want to thank you again, you've been incredibly helpful and patient. You deserve the best.
