Wireless Driver Isn't getting Installed

Post by R_d_a » Wed Mar 07, 2018 11:10 am

I have an HP-15q-bu011TX laptop with rtl8723de wireless chipset and Linux mint cinnamon 18.3 installed and the kernel version is 4.13.0.0.6. when I first installed the OS I did not found the wifi option on it so I searched the driver on internet and somehow found it on https://github.com/lwfinger/rtlwifi_new. I installed it and it was working. But as soon as I restarted the computer the driver automatically got removed, I tried it many times but the problem was same. Please suggest some solution to my problem.

a. 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.

b. Do the same with the following three commands:

Code: Select all

rfkill list all
and:

Code: Select all

inxi -Nn
and:

Code: Select all

iwconfig

Thanks for the suggestion asinoro , I have already tried this but my problem is that the system isn't holding the driver. After installing the driver it only works for the session in which it is install and every time I restart the system I have to install it again.

This should make the rtlwifi_new driver survive the session:

Can you give the diagnostic terminal outputs again, after you've enabled the driver for the session?

I have restarted the laptop and as soon as i tried to install the the driver again I found that the extended repository for the driver was not available on https://github.com/lwfinger/rtlwifi_new. In all now I can't install the driver even for a single session.

You don’t need to install all the time the driver when you run

Code: Select all

sudo modprobe rtl8723de
after reboot do you have wifi?

Run this command first.

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r) build-essential git dkms
and then all the other commands for the installation reboot and check again.

I found the repository for the driver and installed the driver.
But I still can't understand why so I have to run sudo modprobe rtl8723de everytime I restart.
Please suggest a permanent fix for this
