Kali Linux 2020.2 Wifi Not Working (Realtek)

So: I’ve been working on trying to set up my WiFi on my new Kali linux OS. I am using a Realtek RTL8723DE 802.11b/g/n PCIe Adapter. iwconfig gives me the results:
lo no wireless extensions.

eth0 no wireless extensions.
I have tried installing a zip file from github but it is no longer there and when I follow the other instructions it wants a user name and password. I made an account but to no avail. (https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Wireless-and-Networking/Realtek-8723DE-wifi-module-amp-Bluetooth-Linux-driver/td-p/6477307) This is the link to that set of instructions.
I have also tried this (https://www.kalilinux.in/2020/03/how-to-install-wi-fi-driver-in-kali-linux.html) and it did nothing for me either.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

rtk8192ee wifi firmare stops loading after ifenslave setup attempt (Debian 10)

I tried setting up Mode 0 NIC bonding using ifenslave between my Ethernet and WiFi cards on Debian 10.

After numerous ifconfig wls1 up/down, I was able to set up Bond0 until it stopped working. After undoing the setup, I realized ifconfig wls1 up wasn’t loading the WiFi adapter’s firmware anymore (rtk8192ee)

:~$ sudo dmesg | grep firmware

[5.201360] rtl8192ee: Using firmware rtlwifi/rtl8192eefw.bin

[5.201745] rtl8192ee 0000:24:00.0: firmware: failed to load rtlwifi/rtl8192eefw.bin (-2)

[5.201799] firmware_class: See https://wiki.debian.org/Firmware for information about missing firmware

[5.201845] rtl8192ee 0000:24:00.0: Direct firmware load for rtlwifi/rtl8192eefw.bin failed with error -2

I know I’m not missing the firmware because it was working before. Could this be a NetworkManager bug?

Please see my /etc/network/interfacesfile below

source /etc/network/interfaces.d/*

auto lo

iface lo inet loopback

Any ideas why the firmware is acting up?

Trying to install wifi adaptor to kali linux manually

I have a huaweii matebookd, with a VM box and kali linux installed.
Bought a Wireless adapter (TL-WN725N), and although it appears on my VM, it does not appear on my kali.
I am trying to manually install it using these instructions:
1)You will need to blacklist another driver in order to use this one.
2)”echo “blacklist r8188eu” > “/etc/modprobe.d/realtek.conf”
3)”make && make install”
4)Reboot in order to blacklist and load the new driver/module.

However, when I am on step 3, this error appears:
make *** no rule to make target “install”. Stop.

Then it says no targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.

Any suggestions?

WPA3-Enterprise Modes

Looking at the Wi-Fi alliance document we find basically three modes:

  • WPA3-Enterprise only Mode
  • WPA3-Enterprise transition Mode
  • WPA3-Enterprise 192-bit Mode

Inside another document provided by Aruba there is another definition:

  • WPA3-Enterprise Basic Basic Opmode is essentially the same as WPA2-Enterprise with enforced PMF settings (MFPR=0, MFPC=1)
  • WPA3-Enterprise: Suite-B/CNSA top-secret security standards for Enterprise WiFi are enforced, deriving at least 384-bit PMK/MSK using Suite-B compatible EAP-TLS.

The questions are about these differences:

  • How many modes are there?
  • Is 192-bit mode mandatory for WPA3-Enterprise or not?

If I am trying to clean install a MacOS with internet recovery, is it safer to use mobile network than WIFI network?

I just clean installed my MacOS Catalina on my MacBook due to virus on my PC that I worried got on my MacBook via usb file transfer.

I did an internet recovery to reinstall MacOS Catalina with my home WiFi network, with password protected. However, since my Pc was had a virus, I was worried that my IP addresss and home WiFi network has been compromised, can I still trust that the installation was not tempered with? Or should I perhaps reinstall it again using mobile network? Since I have heard that mobile data are much more secure than WiFi network.

Prevention of RF-Capture Based Attack

I am looking for preventive measures to an RF-Capture based attack. I have found faraday material capable of attenuating wifi signals up to about 80-90dB, but is that sufficient to block all possibility of a close range attack? Or is it feasable that signals can be emitted strong enough to penetrate this barrier at close range?

no wifi connection with ubuntu

no wifi connection with ubuntu

I recently purchased a used Samsung Galaxy Book and after experiencing the Win 10 dual booted with Ubuntu 20.04.
I have been researching the forums but I am still unable to make the wifi work or even find any signals.
As a last resort I have also installed Connman hoping it would find the connection but no luck.
Some of the information is listed below
Thank you
