Instilation network issues

I am attempting to install Garuda Linux Dragonized on a Mac, I am currently unable to connect to the internet to do the continue in the instillation, the network has 'no available connections' I have ran into similar issues with this before when attempting to install Linux based operating systems. I tried looking at other topics and could not find a fix. Help would be greatly appreciated.

Let me know if any data is needed, the output of [garuda-inxi] is below.

I rebooted, same issue. It also hasten been installed yet because I cannot connect to the network to do so.

You don't need the internet for the installation.
Complete the process, reboot and let's see if connectivity is fixed.
If not, we'll search for the right driver for your card.


that fixed it, thanks m8. Also sorry, I thought it was a net install for some reason.


My english is getting worse day by day :frowning:
