No wireless connection on HP Pavilion

Post by glennisen » Sat May 18, 2019 4:31 am

Hi,
I've just installed Tessa at an very old laptop HP Pavilion.
I suppose this laptop is 12 years old. Hade Ubuntu 14,04 installed earlier.
Can't get the right hardware configuration and drives for wifi. It works brilliant with wired network and wifi did work with Ubuntu 14, 04.

Erased the hard disc drive when Linux Mint been installed so I can't use any old drives.

Glad for any help and thank you in advance

No worries, I've split it off into a new topic for you.
For the next time: you go to the forum section where you want to start a new topic, and find the New Topic button at the top and bottom of the page. Pretty simple really.

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

Finally: you've definitely selected the wrong Mint edition (Cinnamon) for that ancient machine. Select the lightweight Xfce edition instead.
