No wifi in network setting - Solved

Post by belix » Thu Aug 22, 2019 12:53 pm

Hello i am new to this forum but not new to the linux distros, i have used ubuntu xenial,jesse as well as parrot.

I installed mint tessa yesterday but failed to use the wifi, i ended up using cable to run updates. I have been reading through solved post
about similar issues and sadly i have tried all suggestion but nothing, the wifi icin wont appear.
In brief here is what i have tried;

1. Driver manager-kept on showing no internet connection error and yet i was connected.
2. make rtlsifi plus the commands used in the whole process, rebooted - no change
3. install rtlwifi - still no change
4. opened the bottom of my hp probook took out the wlna card put it back - still nothing
5. disabled secure mode even put a password - still no change
6. it doesnt even recognise the ls /lib/firmware/rtlwifi/ directory

Tired, sad, hungry and at wits end.
Please please please help, i wont be able to sleep without solving it i know you can all relate to the sleepless nights please help
