I need to install headers and build-essentials in order to install wifi drivers. So, I can't install them from terminal because I don't have internet access from Linux. I am dual booting Kali and Windows 7. My Wifi adapter is a Netgear AC1200. It works on the Windows OS, but not Kali. I need to install a driver to get it to work. What would be the easiest way that you recommend?

  1. Connect computer via ethernet to Netgear AC1200, then install (assuming your PC has ethernet, and the ethernet drivers are not disabled in the stock kernel).

  2. Download Kali .deb packages in Windows, copy to Linux partitions, install from packages using dpkg -i etc.
