Special Note:

There will be many wireless connectivity issue while using Ubuntu. If there is no connectivity issue then you are lucky. Ubuntu do not support many of the wifi & bluetooth chipset drivers. I myself not able to connect my WIFI & bluetooth. If you are not having working wifi & bluetooth on kali then you will not able to use many of the features.

There are many misleading solution are available on the internet in which they just stimulate your wifi virtually but you will not able to use it & after restarting it again stops working. You can find a genuine solution for your chipset on internet if it works then it is your luck.

I myself not able to find any permanent solution for my wifi chipset RTL8723DE. If anyone finds a solution for this please contact me.
