Hi and welcome to LQ,

Firstly, does your wifi adapter work? I mean, can you properly connect to a wifi network using the machine?

Please post the output of the following commands:
Code:
> ifconfig -a

> lspci -v | grep -A 6 "Network"

Ok, we confirm it is wlan0, up and working.

To check the compatibility of your adaptor, you should check if it is supported by aircrack-ng (in which airodump is a part).

Please read this: https://www.aircrack-ng.org/doku.php...mpatible_cards

Networking is disabled by default in Kali so have you enabled wireless. The Kali documentation site below has answers to a number of questions on wireless problems so I would suggest you go over that first if you have not.
