Help with Kali Linux wifi not working but works with Manjaro

I usually use PBP with Manjaro and everything works great.  I recently flashed Kali on SD card but for some reason it's not connecting to wifi.  I'm still very new to Linux.  I tried searching online for the answer but can't seem to find it.
I ran airmon-ng command and this is what I got:

phy0      wlan0     brcmfmac        unable to detect for sdio 0x02d0:0xa9bf

Does anyone know what's wrong and how I can connect my wifi?

I had the same problem so I copied the same Kali file to the same SSD and then the network worked.
Here's the cmd I used:
xzcat kali-linux-2022.2-pinebook-pro-arm64.img.xz | sudo dd of=/dev/mmcblk1 bs=4M status=progress

If this doesn't work you can try to start networking manually with the following cmds:
# /etc/init.d/networking start
# /usr/sbin/NetworkManager
# nmcli device wifi list     /* if you get a  list then your networking is up
                                                 and you can connect to your wifi router using
                                                  the network icon on the upper right of your screen*/

# nmcli device wifi connect "$SSID" password "$PASSWORD"   /* if you don't see you router with list cmd, try this
                                                                                                                     $SSID is your router name. the double
                                                                                                                     quotes are necessary */
Anyway, by now you have probably solved your problem since this post was a month old.
