Open a terminal and type: iwconfig

Do you see any wireless interfaces listed? Are they in 'Monitor' mode? It is possible that during a wireless penetration test, you put the wireless adapter in monitor mode using something like 'airmon-ng'. If so, bring it back using:

airmon-ng stop wlan0mon

(this is assuming that the monitor interface was called 'wlan0mon')

Also, check network in settings and see if a wireless interface is available there. If this is a VM, then you might not have access to the wireless interface because the host might be using it. If you are using a VM to host Kali, you need a USB wireless adapter (like an Alpha card) to be able to access wireless interace within Kali.
