My parrot os Cannot discover wifi

Briefly describe your issue below:
Am using version 4.2, security all in one. ISO.
I installed in it on virtual box, Linux, other Linux 64.

Im trying to connect the parrot os to a Wi-Fi but it doesn’t see Wi-Fi. I can’t connect to a Wi-Fi.

What version of Parrot are you running? (include version, edition, and architecture)

What method did you use to install Parrot? (Debian Standard / Debian GTK / parrot-experimental)

Configured to multiboot with other systems? (yes / no)

If there are any similar issues or solutions, link to them below:

If there are any error messages or relevant logs, post them below:

you can’t use wifi on virtualbox

what happens under the hood

the wifi device is directly attached to your host OS

the host OS takes care of discovering wireless access points and connecting to one of them to give network connectivity to the host system

the virtualbox hypervisor just creates virtual hardware where to run parrot in

virtualbox takes the internet connectivity of the host OS and connects a virtual ethernet port between the host and the guest

the guest is NATted behind the host network sharing its internet access


you can detach the phisical wireless adapter from the host os and attach it to the guest os from the virtualbox settings.

this action will cause the host system to loose its wireless access, but parrot would be able to discover wireless access points and connect to them as if it was the host

neither virtualbox nor other virtualization solutions offer you a ready to use function to give direct internet access to the guest and then offer it back to the host, and you would need a lot of additional steps to do this, and only if both the virtualization software and the host os give you all the basic blocks to try to implement this solution.

another smart solution is to buy an additional usb wireless adapter, connect it, append it to virtualbox and use it from the guest os.

otherwise i strongly suggest to stop virtualizing and go bare metal by installing parrot directly on your computer if it is fully supported by linux and debian

how to do download parrot os on bare metal directly.
can you provide the link or some help??
