No, you need to actually PAY ATTENTION and read what you're being told.

Kali is for experienced Linux users..you ARE NOT. There is absolutely NOTHING that Kali can do, that you cannot do with any other distro of Linux. Only difference being that Kali has security/pentesting tools built in, and you don't have to manually install them. That's it....if you want to learn, that will give you excellent experience. And chances are just loading Mint will get your wifi working right out of the box.

You're ignoring the advice of people who are far more experienced than you, and you're wondering why you're having problems.

In all fairness, there's loads of reports of problems with certain obscure realtek devices.
Combine that with a Linux newb who wants to jump in the deep end, sh!t happens.

dear OP, Kali is based on Debian.
see here: https://wiki.debian.org/rtl819x?high...8rtl8188eus%29
It mentions your device; apparently you can use the r8188eu driver which should be part of the kernel, but this does not jibe with my tests. Something is fishy.

See here:
https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...er-4175626502/
That's for Slackware.
Good Luck adapting it to Debian/Kali.

Again, you appear to just be ignoring what you're being told. Kali **IS NOT FOR NEW USERS** but experienced Linux users, and if you read Kali's own website, it tells you this, along with the fact that Kali disables wifi by default. There is much advice on Kali's website on this:
https://forums.kali.org/showthread.p...-from-terminal

But **AGAIN**, you really should load something else. Because all you're going to have is problems with everything you try to do that isn't security/pentesting related. Kali **IS NOT** meant for daily use, so your experiences with web browsers, email, and other such programs aren't going to be good. And to state it again, ANY modern distro of Linux can do everything Kali can do. If you're a new user and genuinely want to actually learn, you'd be far better of loading Mint, then identifying the various tools, what they do, and installing them. THAT will give you far more knowledge.
