Your default wireless network cannot be used while you are using Virtual Box. If you want to use wireless network in your Virtual Box, you can use the wireless usb card, then the virtual machine can detect it.

      your onboard wifi cannot used by virtualbox. you need to use USB wifi card.
      take a look to this Virtualbox FAQ https://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?t=8669

      you can use Wireless in VirtualBox if and only you use the wireless USB, not the onboard wireless card.

    Virtual Box is useless. I have Alfa card with Atherous chipset and it recognised but not supported by vbox. I’ve got vmware and it works like a charm.

      you must have a usb wireless, not onboard wi-fi

      • simnas

        ok i bought new alfa

        i dont have any wirless connection

        its possible to crack someone wifi without connect any network

        if yes which one good? reaver , comnview, airmon.

          possible if the wi-fi was vulnerable and they use the weak encryption.

  • champi

    hi,

  • sekhar

    i have atheros AR9485 adapter but it is not showing in the drop down list when i selected bridged adapter

  • Matthew Barnard

    Thanks. However, I am unsure as how to get Kali to identify my wifi as actual wifi rather than a wired connection so I can use wifite and such programs. Will it also work as a sniffer? Thanks and great tutorial!

    Dude am using WMware player how can i ENABLE my wifi connection as i recently installed kali.

    • lencar29

      From the VMware player “Player” drop down menu select “Removable Devices”. Then choose your USB wireless adapter. Finally connect to this device. Accept the fact you’ll be disconnecting from the host and you’re good to go.

        Thanks bro.
