Wifi not working on Lenovo Legion Y530

Post by kananjarrus96 » Sun Aug 04, 2019 7:23 pm

I've searched most of the guides and advices on how to solve this issue, and yet i couldn't rectify my problem. My Lenovo needs a wifi-adapter in order to detect wireless network. I've tried to blacklist the ideapad-laptop module and it doesn't work. Saw most of past advice from JeremyB and I'm still stuck.

Hi there all,

I am having the same issue with the same computer..
I tired the same things and have not been able to resolve the issue.
I turned off secure boot and am still stuck.

Any help would be swell.

I would suggest that you ask Lenovo (maybe also in the forum there) for the exact specification of the wi-fi-card, that is built into your model, stating the model number and what else Lenovo needed, as it is currently not possible to find the appropriate driver for Linux, since the only information you can find is "Realtek Device b822".

Hello guys,

I am planning to get the same model, beside the wifi problem, can you please tell me if there is anything else that is problematic, like touchpad or keyboard backlit not working properly?

Hello,

can anybody please confirm that the wifi is only problem? Touchpad and keyboard backlit are ok?

Thanks in advance.
