Briefly describe your issue below:
Hi, all. So I made the switch from Kali to Parrot and I am loving it, my only issue is the wifi. First I had to compile the driver for a Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8723DE 802.11b/g/n PCIe Adapter. This wasn’t a big issue I seem to have to do it with most kernel updates on Kali. I have a direct install on an average HP laptop which ran Kali great (apart from WiFi also). Anyway when I take the Ethernet out I have a connection but the speeds are dial up speeds, then I will lose it and have to reboot. Sometimes it activates the WiFi, sometimes I need to put the Ethernet cable in to get the WiFi working, any help would be appreciated.
What version of Parrot are you running? (include version (e.g. 4.6), edition(e.g. Home//KDE/OVA, etc.), and architecture (currently we only support amd64)
Version: MATE 5.5.0-1parrot1-amd64 #1 SMP Parrot 5.5.17-1parrot1 (2020-04-25) x86_64 GNU/Linux
What method did you use to install Parrot? (Debian Standard / Debian GTK / parrot-experimental)
USB direct install
Configured to multiboot with other systems? (yes / no)

This is one of many a solution:

Had the same WiFi card. if I recall, it had issue (disconnecting) from time to time.
Try bringing the interface down, then back up again (to see if this prevents your need for a reboot):
sudo ifconfig wlan0 down && sudo ifconfig wlan0 up
(replacing wlan0 with your rtl8723de device name)
Unfortunately it isn’t the best card for Linux.
Thanks for the reply, I’ll give it a go
Just after your message I lost connection and tried the command to bring it back up, but no luck. I might have to get a wifi adapter as i am loving Parrot and would like to take my laptop with me on the move.
Thanks for your help
Try restarting network-manager altogether. Either way that wireless card did not support monitor mode leaving out some of the things you might want to try on Parrot OS
I am have been using parrot is for sometime but I have to use Ethernet or external wireless adapter to be able to connect to the internet.
Yesterday I came across a GitHub page https://github.com/smlinux/rtl8723de that offered drivers for my pc wireless adapter(Rtl8723de) so the wifi started working but anytime I try running airmon-ng start wlan0 my whole laptop just freezes and I have to force shutdown
I have also tried other different ways of switching to monitor mode but once I switch to monitor mode the laptop crashes
What is the official way to get driver for rtl8723de
Try it with an older 5* Kernel. Other users found that helpful as it had problems on more recent Linux Kernels. See this thread: Help with Realtek wlan driver
