[SOLVED] 19.1 Installation problems: no wireless connection

Post by jdmckay » Fri May 17, 2019 11:47 pm

Hi,

Installing latest (19.1) version of LM Cinnamon on a new HP laptop, model: 14-cl0061st.

Live CD gave me no wifi connection, I'm doing fine with wifi on older laptop on this network. I did clean install successfully.

Reading a few other threads, expected to be able to use driver manager to update from Live CD. Rebooted fresh install, loaded Live CD. However, driver manager comes up blank. Details box says:
E:The repository 'cdrom://Linux Mint 19.1 _Tessa_ - Release amd64 20181217 bionic Release' does not have a Release file.
My video info:
~$ lspci -nnk | grep -iA3 net
02:00.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller [10ec:8168] (rev 15)
Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller [103c:849e]
Kernel driver in use: r8169
Kernel modules: r8169
05:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. Device [10ec:d723]
Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Device [103c:8319]
Any help appreciated.

Try this:
1. Establish temporary internet connection by other means;
2. Update Manager - panel: View - Linux kernels
Install the latest kernel of the 5.0 series. Then reboot.

2. Update Manager - panel: View - Linux kernels
Install the latest kernel of the 5.0 series. Then reboot.
Did not do the trick.

I long ago gave away all my Ethernet cables. Borrowed one from a neighbor. Going to reinstall with Ethernet connection and 3rd party drivers checked, see what happens. Will let you know.

Ok, did that with another fresh install. Did not work.

Any suggestions?

see what I can find w/Google.

Please generate an overview of your system like this:
- Launch a terminal window (this is how to launch a terminal window);
- make the terminal window full screen, to avoid chopped lines;
- Copy/paste this command into the terminal:

Code: Select all

inxi -Fxz
(if you type: the letter F is a capital letter)

Press Enter.

Copy/paste the output in your next message.

Do the same with the following four commands:

Code: Select all

rfkill list all

Code: Select all

iwconfig

Code: Select all

lsusb

Code: Select all

I followed instructions posted https://unixblogger.com/how-to-get-your ... ted-guide/, as it was suggested on other threads.

Did not work.

Probably an RTL8723DE chipset. Try the driver from lwfinger (extended edition):

As it's an HP, you might afterwards also need to do this:
