    1. You need to restart the interface for the new config to take effect in ‘ifconfig’ or ‘ip address’

      – Click the network icon in the task bar then select ‘Disconnect’.
      – Repeat, but click the network connection instead. Should come right up.

  1. My Kali-Linux oil address is starting with and I changed from the on start with 10.80x…. but it’s not changing to 192…. up address. I set it from network options changing NAT to Bridged Adapter. Help me to make 192…

    1. Hi Sabelo,
      When you change setting NAT to Bridged Adapter, IP is given by the Local DHCP server (Wif Modem, mobile Hotspot), and it is not necessary to start with 192…. etc. So check the settings of the local DHCP server.
      The following command may help you
      ifconfig eth0 down
      ifconfig eth0 up

      Where eth0 is netwrok adapter name, It may change in your system, check it
