Hello gentlemen. I have become interested in playing around with Kali Linux, and I have been trying to install it, however I'm not having any luck. I keep getting the same error when I get to the network setup phase, the screenshot is below.

I know for a fact that the password I am using is correct, so what is causing the error? I  would appreciate your assistance.

What version number is it?
 
Open terminal ant type or copy paste this.

cat /etc/*-release

Hit enter then copy paste the output in your next reply.
 
Have you updated it since install?
 
Check the wpa/wpa2 parameters. Your setting should look like this. If you do not select the correct wpa/wpa2 setting it wont work. There is also bug in Kali from what I read.

Some problems are more complicated than others and require additional work to isolate the issue. So, try not to overwhelm the user with possible conflicting information during the troubleshooting process. Wait for the user to report back that step 1 is done and the result before suggesting anything new,

Unless you know exactly what the problem is and how to fix it.
 
 
Stay on topic Please.

 
Thank's
Nick.

When you ask for support you should also include as much information about the problem as possible. Including all of the important details in your first post will greatly speed up the entire support process and allow our volunteers to better assist you. While you may think a particular error message isn't very helpful, it may be the key to resolving your issue. Some details we are looking for would include, but not be limited to:
  •     Your distribution's name (Mint, Ubuntu, Debian, etc), version (17, 14.04, 7, etc), and architecture (32-bit, 64-bit).
  •     Provide relevant information about your physical hardware or installed software.
  •     Share relevant log files, screenshots, detailed error messages, or anything else that could be used to troubleshoot your issue.

How can I open the terminal to do any of this if I haven't installed it yet? Am I mis-understanding you, or are you mis-understanding me?

 

But the website says Kali Linux 64 bit 1.0.9a

When you boot the PC from Kali Live disk, Everything work ok?

Have you tried installing it without  WiFi connection? If you can connect to the net via cable,  Then after it is installed you can configure WiFi.
