So, I got this problem yesterday. I was trying to connect to my WiFi network and it showed that there is no WiFi adapter. Today i was trying to fix the problem, but i know little to no programing, any help? I'm using ubuntu, The latest version.
lspci |grep Network
lspci |grep Network
2:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Wireless 8265 / 8275 (rev 78)
I have two Fedora systems that use that chipset with no problems.
You shouldn't have to remove any old kernel versions, likely that module was using part of one of the old kernel drivers.
what is the output of "lsmod | grep wifi "
also what is the output of "nmcli dev show | grep wifi -B1 -A4"
iwlwifi 339968 1 iwlmvm cfg80211 843776 3 iwlmvm,iwlwifi,mac80211
GENERAL.DEVICE: wlp2s0 GENERAL.TYPE: wifi GENERAL.HWADDR: F8:63:3F:E9:49:59 GENERAL.MTU: 1500 GENERAL.STATE: 10 (unmanaged) GENERAL.CONNECTION: --
I am using GNOMEThe good news here is.. your Kernel does see your wifi adapter.
Now it's just a question of setting up your connection.
Which window manager are you using? (Gnome, Mate, KDE, etc... )
From a terminal, when you run... "nmcli dev wifi list"
Does it show any SSIDs. (Your wifi network name).
Gnome... *sigh*. Ok then we'll have to do this in the terminal.
what is output from...
