Problem with Wifi

Hello everyone, I recently had a problem on Garuda. After successfully updating Garudo, I had a problem with Wi-Fi, it immediately went down after the update. I didn't know what to do, I thought to delete and then restore, but I couldn't restore, the wifi adapter doesn't show me its Wi-Fi. What should I do? I watched everything, well, I didn't get it all, if you suddenly didn't understand, I can throw off the screenshots.

I also checked with the snapshot, went to them and there was Wi-fi, but when I restart the computer, the snapshot becomes the same (where my wi-fi was turned off)

Hello and Welcome to the Forums! :smiley:

Plz provide the output of the command garuda-inxi so we can have details of your installation. It is the command that was written in the msg template when you started writing.

Well you are booted into a Snapshot, you should either restore it or go back to your main subvolumes.
From there, make sure your last system update is very recent, like as of today :slight_smile:.

So first thing would be to fully update your system, from your main subvolumes not a snapshot, with garuda-update.
It's quite possible to Wifi drivers have been updated (most probably!) which would fix your issue.

Are you saying after today's update the Wifi went down?
If yes then ok, that's different.


I am currently on a snapshot, I came for the sake of solving the problem :slight_smile: Everything is fine in the snapshot, but the main garudo itself is not there, there is no wifi

And another question, if you go to garuda without a snapshot, and write the garuda-update command, will my drivers be updated?

It seems to be a known regression:
see latest comments.
Once the restore aspect is fixed, you could try with the linux-lts kernel.
The fix is available and should be included in kernel v5.18.6


Okay, I'll try. Thank you for the answer!


Garuda outputs to me after connecting to Wi fi

-> No agents were available for this request.

I think this message should be related to kdewallet, when it doesn't provide your credentials to the network manager.
Try to select your network connection and set
“Store password for all users (not encrypted)”
in the WiFi Security tab.
