Wireless Connection is not working in linux mint

Post by sye0912 »


My Wifi is not working but it had previously been working just fine. I've been using Linux Mint for over a year with no Wifi issues so I don't understand why this would happen now.

I had to use a USB Tethering in order to post this.

I am using Linux Mint 19.3 cinnamon

cinnamon version 4.4.8

kernal version 5.4.0-40-generic

Thank you.

We need to know what wifi card is in the machine. If you don't know go to a terminal and type this command and post the results.

Code: Select all
