Sorry to say, IF you do not have enough experience in Linux to find and install hardware drivers, then you are not experienced enough to be using Kali

I managed to remove it from CDROM mode now i have all the necessary drivers install yet it only shows up when i list usb devices
 
And what dose inxi -Nn show
 
Your inxi is showing two wireless adaptors' device 2 with the correct driver loaded and device 3 without a driver loaded.
I assume that the TPlink is the USB dongle [they also use various Realteck chipsets it is also showing device 2 is down, this probably means you have a hard block on [some call it flight mode]
If you are using a laptop/netbook/Chromebook, then check the flight mode is not on [how to do this varies between makes and models then check in the network manager which is enabled [having both on can cause complications]
