Wifi Not detected Realtek RTL8723DE 802.11b/g/n PCIe Adapter

Post by parejf63 »

Greetings, I bought a new HP laptop. I am currently running Windows 10 Pro, but I miss Linux - :-( Unfortunately, my wifi does not get detected when I install mint 19.3 It is a Realtek RTL8723DE 802.11b/g/n PCIe Adapter

Any help would be appreciated. This is my only internet connection.

Hello parejf63,

in Linux you need an additional driver for your card, and for the installation you need an internet connection. If wifi is the only possible, you can get a temporarily internet connection with a mobile phone, using its wifi and USB tethering:

USB Tethering Android

1. connect your phone to your computer via USB (your phone charger hopefully has a usable, detachable USB cable)
2. go to Settings > Wireless & Networks in your mobile phone, there to ...More
3. go to tethering & mobile hotspot
4. activate USB tethering

USB Tethering Iphone

1. connect your phone to your computer via USB (your phone charger hopefully has a usable, detachable USB cable)
2. go to Settings > Personal Hotspot > Activate in your phone
3. activate USB only

If that works, see the how-to on the following website:

If you experience problems after the installation, see item 2 on the same website ( a speciality for HP and your wifi card)

Not much chance of this wifi being supported in any linux kernel anytime soon as the source code isn't part of the upstream kernel yet
