Like for example, when i did airmon-ng wlan0 (wlan0 my interface name), the chipset is displayed as Unknown, same goes to fern-wifi software, there isn't any wireless device detected during the process

I seriously doubt if either of those programs can be made to work with these drivers yet .. and on the whole I don't give support for them.

You're best off asking on the aircrack-ng forum:
http://forum.aircrack-ng.org/

I know little about it.

It's my intention to help people with Linux problems, not breaking wireless encryption (even for legitimate purposes).

and then I run

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done

Their repo's now only seem to contain the kernel headers for the 3.16 and 3.18 series kernels:
http://http.kali.org/kali/pool/main/l/linux/

are you fully up to date ?
(because you seem to be running a 3.14 series kernel)

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

REBOOT .. then post the output from:
Code: [Select]
uname -a
It's IMPORTANT that you reboot first.

OK, NOW you have the 3.18 kernel, so try:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)
again.
