ok, first a couple of questions.
What product is the driver for? Wifi? Bluetooth?

What website did you pull this from? Who is the manufacturer?

what error messages does it display when you try to install it?

The more info you give, the more you help us help you.

have you tried typing "chmod 777 setup.py"

Are you running as root? or atleast using Sudo?

What version of python are you using, and what version is the setup.py expecting?

What Kernel are you using? From what I can understand from the website the 6205 chipset is supported from 2.6.35 kernel version

Well it looks like the drivers you have downloaded are for an older kernel, that could be your issue.

From what I can understand, the wifi should work with your kernel. Does your laptop have a shortcut button to turn wifi off and on? Could be the issue.

Are you sure you downloaded the right firmware? I believe the one you should installed is from the tar called "iwlwifi-6000g2a-ucode-18.168.6.1.tgz" from http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/iwlwifi

this is my wirless driver

Intel® Centrino® Advanced-N 6205

http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/iwlwifi?action=AttachFile&do=get&target=iwlwifi-6000g2a-ucode-17.168.5.1.tgz

bcoz this name " Intel® Centrino® Advanced-N 6205 " showing on my windows 7 wirless adapter name.

this is not.

Intel® Centrino® Advanced-N 6235

http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/iwlwifi?action=AttachFile&do=get&target=iwlwifi-6000g2a-ucode-18.168.6.1.tgz

and yes in my laptop have a wifi shortcut button...

are you think my firmware not right. then you can find correct firmware for my driver if possible and u have time...

The Kali docs for troubleshooting are pretty much going to be the same for BT:

http://docs.kali.org/troubleshooting/troubleshooting-wireless-driver-issues

Open a terminal and type dmesg. Then use the radio toggle key for wifi(Usually like Function Key+F2 or such, which I have to do on my HP when using BT to enable wifi), see if the wifi light comes on or blinks at least, and then again type dmesg, see if you get an error about the wifi or any kind of new info after the key combo. If you do, then type ifconfig -a, see if you your wlan adapter shows. If doesn't show after the toggle key using ifconfig -a then dmesg should of show some sort of error of why, but I have a feeling you're going to need to buy a USB wifi card compatible with BT anyway since you're probably only going to be able to use an ndis wrapper with the windows drivers to make the card work in managed mode ONLY and not have monitor mode or injection capabilities if its not working out of the box. The card most likely isn't supported due to how new it is(I think) but looks to be strictly Intel based and a newer card so don't think you'll find drivers for what you'll want to do with BT - http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/processors/centrino/centrino-advanced-n-6205-brief.html

Cards to try:

http://www.backtrack-linux.org/wiki/index.php/Wireless_Drivers#compat_wireless

http://www.aircrack-ng.org/doku.php?id=compatibility_drivers#usb

Hakshop used to sell a USB wifi card that worked with BT and Kali out of the box, but I don't see it listed, maybe out of stock, but the atheros/realtek cards are usually the ones you'll want to go for that work with all the functions needed for monitor mode and injection. Sure someone here could list the exact model(s) to save time, since there are some differences in the realtek family of cards, so make sure to purchase the correct one and also search the forums for realtek cards, since I know there are posts which list the card model that works.

If its a VM, you need to use a USB wifi card. Can't pass onboard wifi to a VM, only the wired ethernet!

ohhh i see u mean built in wireless card not working on VM ?

Yeah. Onboard wifi can't be passed to a VM, only the wired ethernet. USB wifi cards can though. If you booted the HOST machine(not a VM) off a live disc, it might be possible using the radio toggle key then BT or Kali might see your card, but I think its still too new and probably not supported, if only would work in managed mode anyway. Get yourself an Atheros or Realtek USB wifi card known to work with the distros, you'll have much better results anyway and can add on antennas to most of them for further gain/range for the ones that have the screw on dipole.
