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

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]
