No Wireless Networks Found Error After Update


I have Kali linux and updated it a few days ago and now when I search for networks after going into monitor mode it tells me "no wireless networks found". before the update, monitor mode used to be "mon0" After the update, after entering monitor mode it says "wlan0mon" not sure if this helps. I use Wicd network manager but the origional network manager also cant see any wireless networks, it says "device not managed".

I had a similar problem recently with another distro. The problem boiled down to getting the system to recognize the wireless adapter. Once that was done, everything else just fell into place.

Here are instructions specific to Kali. Scroll down to "Enable WiFi Kali Linux GUI Method" for instructions.
