Hello 3186,



We understand you're having issues connecting to wireless using Kali Linux*.



Please bear in mind that Linux drivers are part of the upstream Linux* kernel. They are available through the regular channels, distributions, or the http://www.kernel.org/ Linux* kernel archives. We support use of the drivers only in the kernel version the driver was a part of.



The Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 3168 is supported starting on Linux* Kernel 4.6 and above. It's important to make sure that your current distribution supports the adapter.
