The lsmod stuff is the same. So I don't know what is happening there.
The lsmod queries the module if it is in place and loaded, in your case that is in order even if the wifi is not functioning. In this latter case the wifi device is probably turned *down* or *off*, by whom, probably the Standby call has put it down. So what you needed is only to put it up, either by hard or soft switch.

Hard switching:
Find out if your laptop has a manual switch for wifi card. If none, some <in my case it is> use F3 or F12 you can switch it on by *toggle* switching, viz. 2x long/short press to ON, 2x long/short press to OFF.

Soft switching:
It is only in your finger tip:
Code:
sudo ifconfig wlan0 up
Done.

If you want to monitor what is happening of the wireless device behind the scene open up a viewing terminal:
Code:
iwevent
then leave it running while you tinker on other terminals. The report spouted out on the monitor are events as they are handled in the kernel wireless subsystem.

Make sure try: Go to --> Menu and Configure the Power Management --> set the machine to NEVER standby (In may case even if the machine is on NEVER standby, but if I send the monitor/display to Standby after x minutes, still the wifi goes off with the display. That's how tricky it is.

Hope that helps. Good luck and enjoy.

I tried both methods and neither worked. I reinstalled Kali just to see if that would fix it and it didn't. I might try contacting the creators to report this bug. Or maybe there's a different distro I should try that's like Kali.

Hands Up.

Maybe I can help you this one: try another wifi specialist distro.

I have also tried this. Which also didn't work. Maybe it's just a bug that can't be solved at this time. I might go ahead and try wifislax as was suggested. I do love Slackware, and it being combined with security tools makes it excellent as well!
