There are system information missing. You read the post template before deleting it I guess?




My post does not contain a solution, so I am untagging it.
Since you have supplied inxi the posts go back to the original section.

Please edit your specs, there are important information missing, I think due to the f that should be F

I Just don't have time for users like this, as I'm heading out of town till the end of the week. Perhaps it's time we include an alias for inxi -Faz in all editions. Something simple like specs should be pretty foolproof even for dyslexics to get right.


There's nothing in there about the wifi device so it is of incredibly limited use.

You might also check the output of rfkill list. If it says something is "hard blocked" then you have a physical switch on your system that you have to change (could be a dedicated switch or on a function key).
