    the problem is in wmware then.

    also try latest Kali or Backbox instead.

    i tried Kali (debian testing based) and my wifi also doesn't work. Backbox (Ubuntu based) works out of the box. i guess if one installed correct drivers it would work. but if you are running live OS the only way to keep those after installis to use USB key and add persistence to it.

    i setup multiboot USB key with no persistence so i think i will drop Kali and just use Backbox when i plan to test the new setup next year. since both seems to have more or less same tools.
