WiFi drivers not detected

Hello.
I have problems with the internet connection that it does not detect wifi networks and I can only work with ethernet but I can not always use one.

The Wi-Fi panel and settings do not show any options about wireless connection.

I have tried things like these

git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/rtl8821ce-dkms-git/
makepkg -si

(The same of this video How to Solve WiFi not working in Garuda Linux in Windows 10 | in Hindi - YouTube)

I have also tried to restart the wifi module.

I think my network driver did not install because it says N/A

λ inxi -Nxxxz

I hope this helps

I use KDE blackarch edition.

In your BIOS, is there a setting concerning Fast Boot? (Or something like that.)

If so, please make sure it is set to Thorough. If you've ever run Windows 10/11 on that machine, it can sometimes take Wifi/Bluetooth hostage by changing settings.

Other than that, I am not an expert in this field, but several forum members are. Let's see if they respond.

I have Fast Boot disabled an also secure boot is disabled.

Please provide your garuda-inxi as required by the template.
I don't know if this one could be still applicable After so much time, but this user had to give up with blackarch, but had no problem with other edition. You could try from a live USB.

I had the standard version of garuda which if I have all the drives correctly but I changed to the blackarch version for the tools it offers already installed
Thanks, I think I'll switch back to the standard version.

A moderator has requested you to provide your full system specs via the garuda-inxi command. You ignored his request. This is specified as required in both the help request template and the header of the Networking Support sub-forum.

Please include your garuda-inxi output on your next post or your thread will be binned.

This is the completely wrong driver for your wifi adapter. I highly suggest you don't run commands you find online unless you understand what they do. One Realtek driver is not the same as all others and installing the wrong driver is only likely to make your issue worse. Please uninstall the erroneous driver you installed.

Might be best to at this point just use Garuda and run normal BlackArch if it works or maybe go with Kali in a VM or live boot environment or something. No offense meant but you don't seem that familiar with Linux if you're installing random drivers
So a Debian based penetration testing Distro like Kali may be a better bet for you especially if you're learning still. Just my thoughts anyway so you're welcome to agree or disagree

This is a different chipset, CE not AE.

This driver is present in the kernel, there is no need to install any additional drivers or make any changes.

Therefore, revert any other changes you made when you

and try linux-mainline if the driver included in linux-zen doesn't work.
