I am having trouble seeing what you are trying to do.

  • You have gone to a VPS provider and got yourself a VPS and then installed the Kali toolset on it
  • You have then run a wireless monitoring tool and the tool asked for monitoring mode on a wifi adapter
  • You have found that VPS does not have access to a wifi adapter
  • You are then trying on find a way to add a hardware device to a VPS
  • You have tried to add a wifi hardware device by using "apt-get" and it hasn't worked

So you want to sniff the wifi traffic in the data centre of the company that provides your VPS?
