Re: LM19 WiFi not showing in network settings

Thanks again, JeremyB. I will try to be succinct this time. Several installations later this is what I found out: 1. following either these instructions https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=90&t=273099#p1496392 , or these instructions https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=90&t=273099&...

Re: LM19 WiFi not showing in network settings

HELP! I think reinstalling was a bad idea. In addition to missing wifi, now I have lost audio as well, more precisely, I cannot hear videos on youtube on chromium. Loss of audio must have happened when I reinstalled the system. I was hoping that another reinstall WITHOUT updating the kernel (I'm usi...

Re: LM19 WiFi not showing in network settings

This is an UPDATE to results to JeremyB's last suggestion. Short version: problem persists. After doing a fresh install and repeating JeremyB's last set of instructions, I was not even able to login: upon reboot (plugged to the wired network), the laptop wouldn't get past a black screen after 20 min...

I hope it will prove revealing. **EDIT: forgot to mention, unfortunately it didn't work. I didn't like this error message (included...

Re: LM19 WiFi not showing in network settings

I was ready to do a fresh install of LM19 and had an installation usb plugged in and running. I noticed that in this virtual linux environment provided by the usb, wifi is also absent from network settings (see screenshot in link below). So I want to ask anyone if they remember if their wifi was als...

Re: Dual boot Mint 19 with win 10 - problem with grub

Thanks Helix. Freeing space on W10, then preparing it with GParted, choosing the "something else" option and keeping the laptop unplugged from the internet did the trick for me. Now I am facing a serious issue I can't get pass through: wifi will not show in network settings. I have gotten good help ...

Re: LM19 WiFi not showing in network settings

Is there a better way to install a .exe file on linux that doesn't use winehq? The site below claims to have the driver for my rtl8821ce wireless network adapter chipset and I would like to give it a try before attempting something else. https://drp.su/en/devices/wifi/realtek/realtek-rtl8821ce-802-1...

Re: LM19 WiFi not showing in network settings

Hi JeremyB. I tried your suggestion and even though I experienced no errors (results shown below), WiFi still won't show in my network settings. I must say, though, how impressed I am of the work those few lines can do. It seems like I changed the driver for the card? Really nice work. I will probab...

Re: LM19 WiFi not showing in network settings

NOTE: this is probably unrelated, but in addition to the 2 or 3 times that I had to correct the clock on windows 10, this strange thing happened on linux mint 19: I had two chromium windows open but had been working on only one of them for a while, the second window was under it. At one point I slid...

Thanks Andy (lazarus), I forgot to post the error log as well (at the end). Ideas are most appreciated right now as I am still stuck with this problem.

Re: LM19 WiFi not showing in network settings

Continuing on the hypothesis that I am missing drivers for my rtl8821ce wireless network adapter chipset, I found the page below and requested a download link for a linux operating system. They currently only have a .exe download file which I understand will only work on windows (or at least I don't...

Feeling kind of bummed right now. I have researched further but found no solution to my problem of wifi not showing in network settings.

Re: LM19 WiFi not showing in network settings

Perhaps I should have added in the original post: wifi works fine in W10, there is no option to disable wifi in the firmware of this machine (formerly "BIOS"), and there is no physical switch on the laptop to turn wifi off. **EDIT: there IS an airplane-mode button, and it works fine both on W10 and ...

Re: Dual boot Mint 19 with win 10 - problem with grub

@JVR Even as I choose to pre-partition the target for installation, the 'Something else' option allows the same functionality, and I sometimes define my patitions there as well. Noted. I wrote about the solution to my problem in the post below. Thank you for your help! https://forums.linuxmint.com/...
