Can't find local IP Address in ifconfig on Kali Linux, am I doing something wrong?


I've just installed Kali Linux, and I need to find the local IP, so I searched up how to, so I input ifconfig. I'm trying to look for the line (inet addr:xxx.xxx.xxx) but can't find it anywhere, there is inet and inet6, but nothing that looks like an ip.

and also has a line saying UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING MULTICAST

Please help, I'm pretty clueless but trying to get better, as far as I've seen this hasn't be solved anywhere else cause it hasn't been a problem cause it's just there.

Hi:

When you type in ifconfig your ip address should be on one of the lines in the output of wlan0.

If you still can't find it:
Go to a fresh Google page and type in "how to find out ip address"
Google will show you your ip address above the first hit.

I've done that, it just comes up with this, Imgur link to reference.

I think somewhere in Kali docs it says Kali comes network disabled. Since Kali is for experienced Linux users they should have no problem setting up the network.

When you get a chance read the Kali Linux documentation it will enlighten you.

When I read the Kali Linux documentation I remembered that the network is disabled as Emerson has mentioned.
