What Wireless module am I using?

Post by LLS » Mon Feb 11, 2019 9:16 am

What wireless module am I using?
Or more specifically how do I enter it in a terminal command such as "modprobe"?
The reason I as is when I try to enter it in terminal it tells me "module not found" so I'm obviously not inputting it correctly. Tried several variations and get same result.

Output from lshw below

Code: Select all

sudo lshw -C network
[sudo] password for cbdb:

If you right-click on your network connection applet and choose connection information it will list the driver.

sudo modprobe modue_name as in sudo modprobe psmouse will load it and sudo modprobe -r psmouse will unload it.
