Onboard NIC not recognized - Kali Linux

Postby adamsmith17 » 2015-05-23 08:23

Hi,
I am running Linux kali 3.18.0-kali3-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.18.6-1~kali2 (2015-03-02) x86_64 GNU/Linux on Oracle VM VirtualBox.

I am having hard time Kali reconize another onboard NIC. I have two NIC's which are recognized by Windows Ultimate 7:

Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet
Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet#2

root@kali:~/broadcom# lspci | grep -i eth
00:03.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82540EM Gigabit Ethernet Controller (rev 02)

However, OS sees only eth0. eth1 can't be seen.

root@kali:~/broadcom# ifconfig -a
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 08:0a:27:97:44:2f
inet addr:192.168.1.113 Bcast:192.168.1.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:95786 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:44591 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
RX bytes:90987212 (86.7 MiB) TX bytes:8530659 (8.1 MiB)

lo Link encap:Local Loopback
inet addr:127.0.0.1 Mask:255.0.0.0
UP LOOPBACK RUNNING MTU:65536 Metric:1
RX packets:22277 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:22277 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:0
RX bytes:4369899 (4.1 MiB) TX bytes:4369899 (4.1 MiB)

How can I have OS detect another onboard NIC. I guess need to install proper driver?? How do I go about that.

PS: both NIC's are working fine on windows as they are connected to two different sub-nets.

Thanks in advance.

This is DEBIAN Users Forum, about DEBIAN.

Kali might be "based" on Debian, but so are dozens of other distros like Ubuntu etc.

Kali is DIFFERENT. If it was the same it would be called....DEBIAN

I had similar issues with Debian and that's why I posted the issue here. I assumed it must be something got to do with. DEBIAN. Thanks

If you're running Kali in VirtualBox it will only see the NICs offered up by the virtualisation layer - this is why your Broadcom NIC shows up as an Intel part to the guest OS.
Add a second virtual NIC in the virtualbox guest config, map it to the second real NIC in winbows.
And try to ask questions in the right place :roll: - this is not a Debian question, or even a Kali question, in fact it sounds to me like you didn't read the VirtualBox manual.

Yes, but you have to give the OP points for running Kali in a VM instead of using it as an everyday desktop.

And a big fat ignore for being a **** about it.

IMHO, if you're running a pentest distro and don't grok the basics of network virtualisation... don't run a pentest distro.
I wonder what kind of response the kali forums are providing, to come looking here...

Seems like a security professional instead of a whiny wanna-be script kiddie [/sarcasm]
