Installing USB Network Interface Drivers Kali Linux

October 30Hits:15

I bought a network interface to finally make my (persistent) live usb Kali work on my Macbook pro.

  • Network Interface : DLink Wireless N Nano Usb Adapter DWA-131 E1 which uses the Realtek RTL8192EU chipset

The problem is I can't install the drivers.

According to this site I can use the following drivers:

possibly r8192u_usb, r8712u, or rtl8192cu (in backports) or maybe something else depending on chipset

I tried downloading the chipset drivers (RTL8192CU) from realtek (here) After unzipping, going into the /driver/ directory and make and make install I get the following error:

make[1]: *** /lib/modules/4.0.0-kali1-amd64/build: No such file or directory.  Stop. 

How do I make this work? Any help is really appreciated.

Thanks a lot for your help!



As you didn't write exactly what you've already tried, first please assure us you did the following.

sudo apt-get install linux-source
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)
sudo apt-get install build-essential

sudo make install

What does it say now?
