Hello Monster,
Welcome to Linux.org Forum.
Do you know what wifi card is in that machine? If it is realtek you'll have to do some work to get it working.
Go to a terminal and type the following commands and post the outputs back here.
(Note: if you are new to Linux I strongly suggest you start with a different Distro than Kali. Kali is not a new user friendly distro.)
Code:
rfkill list all
inxi -Nn  (note you may have to install inxi)

Welcome to the forums
as @kc1di intimated , Kali OS not a distribution designed for beginners, it is for experienced Linux engineers/programmers/security specialist, you need to know and understand Linux and the command line before you attempt to install and use it.
Pens testing/hacking tools can be added to most Linux distributions once you have a good knowledge of the basics, kindly read and understand the first 3 post in the Kali Linux forum

Ok you have a broadcom 43228 Wireless card. You will need to install Broadcom driver for it to work.
I'm not sure that I know how Kali handles the drivers. As I haven't used it in a While. But This debian page may be of help.

OK, if you are sure, what your latest shot tell me is your Ethernet is OK, but your Wi-Fi isn't. Kali does not automatically come with the non-free/propriotry drivers [as Intimated In my previous post , you are expected to have the experience recognise and install anything needed] see here

hello brickwizard thanks for helping me I have some aware about how hard it is to get into ethical hacking but i didnt know it will be this hard i tried to install kali as my main OS because my laptop is too week to run it as a vm but is there any solutions other than cloud VM.
I want to catch up with hack the box and try hack me courses but i thought i needed to install kali to get into this.
if there is any alternatives pleas let me know

I think that installing Kali is purposely difficult, just to make sure you know what you're doing,
why does it have to be Kali, the Linux tools can be added to almost any distribution, BUT you will still need the background knowledge, or you could end up in serious problems and bulking your kit,
there is another penstesting/security offering for the professional with a very nice easy to install desktop distribution [which i now have on an old lappy] to which you can add their selection of security tools, and that is Parrot

Thanks allot I will install your recommendation , but the thing that made me install kali specifically is because if have watched alot of youtubers recommending it even though they warned that its not for beginner but i thought that i can handle it.

any way thank you @brickwizard and @kc1di

but , may I ask you how to get into ethical hacking because i feel like i am messing things up
once more many thanks <3

It is Hard work to learn properly, like any other new subject, don't rush use all the teaching resources you can find [never trust everything YouTubers say]
And as I tell all new Linux users, you are now embarking on a steep learning curve, don't rush, kick off your shoes, grab a beer, sit back and enjoy the journey, make the learning enjoyable
