"So I tried lots of linux distributions"

It would help to list the ones you've tried? Did you try Mint or Zorin?

You don't know what to do with a tarball yet Kali was one of your Linux choices? Kali is for hacking, er, I mean, "penetration testing".


I suggest you install Mint Linux & if the wireless driver doesn't install automatically, use the Windows driver that came with your wireless & install by using NDISwrapper.

Driver installs automatically on all versions but it doesn't work properly. It has connection for about 3 seconds. And yes I downloaded Kali becouse I need it. Long time ago I used backtrack for "penetration testing" and it worked fine but now I wanted to see whats new in Kali and there is that 3 second of connection problem -.-
