Wifi issues

Post by Deepseek »

Hello, im new on the forum :D
My laptop (Danew DBook 174) was really trashy and buggy with W10 so i decided to install Linux Mint, so now Linux Mint is working excepted the wifi, i can see networks, but if i try to connect i get a connection error, so it's weird cause i didn't got this issue with the USB live of linux mint :|
Can someone tell me the process to get rid of this issu ?
Thanks.

Hello Deepseek,

I've found, that you should have an USB wifi card from Realtek (ID 0bda:f179), which need the rtl8188fu driver. Here in the forum is an actual thread about it:

You most likely have a realteck wireless card, which will need a driver. But the out did not list which card.
before we find that out please issue this command and post output.

Code: Select all

rfkill list
