[SOLVED] Fresh install of Kubuntu 16.04 - No Wireless
« on: May 01, 2017, 12:05:59 pm »
After much messing about trying to make this laptop a dual boot, then wiping Window$ to make it only Kubuntu 14.04 but having problems I decided to go for it and wipe it and install Kubuntu 16,04.

I am now STILL without wireless.
I ran through the info gathering commands you gave me in THIS THREAD and one came up with nothing.

FIRST, post the output from:
Code: [Select]
lsmod
THEN, does wireless spring to life if you run:
Code: [Select]
sudo modprobe iwlwifi

Oh yeah, I forgot, you need to install the 4.8 kernel series via the HWE .. connect via an ethernet cable and run:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install --install-recommends linux-generic-hwe-16.04 xserver-xorg-hwe-16.04
once finished REBOOT

Does wireless work now ?
