Getting Wifi to Work on ParrotOS

Good day! I am preparing to install Parrot on a new partition on my HP laptop. As with Linux Mint it does not recognize my wireless network card (Realtek.) For Mint I had to install a new driver, but I am not sure that a similar method will work with Parrot. Suggestion and advice greatly appreciated!

Yes you should have no issue installing wifi card. What realtek card is it?

If you need any help let us know :slight_smile:

02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller (rev 15)
03:00.0 Network controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. Device d723

I had the same rtl8723de wifi card on a previous laptop and had to install drivers as well for an earlier distro.

rtlwifi_new driver is what you will need for this card (if u do this don’t forget the kernel-headers for exact kernel before building/installing your driver).

Before going through any of that make sure you do not already have the driver installed by checking for it w/:

lsmod|grep 'rtl'

you can paste output. If you need any help let us know :slight_smile:

looks like it is listed module:

Do you see your device when running iwconfig?
