  • Why install a 4 years old release? – GabrielaGarcia Oct 23 '18 at 14:38
  • Because I need to use it for another program that only runs in this version – Jess Oct 23 '18 at 14:42
  • I seriously doubt it but if you say so... Just be aware that (1) 14.04 has just a few months left of support (2) newer versions may support your WiFi natively and (3) 14.04 may not support it at all. Anyway please edit and post the results of lspci -knn | grep Net -A3. – GabrielaGarcia Oct 23 '18 at 14:49
  • Network controller [0280]:intel corporation device [8086:24fd ] (rev 78) Subsystem: Intel corporation device [8086:9010] – Jess Oct 23 '18 at 14:58
  • Please edit the question to post additional/request information. Do not do it in comments. But now that we identified the device please read askubuntu.com/a/911855/880592 and understand the earliest supported release with support for that WiFi is 18.04, exactly what I told you from the start. Now do yourself a favor and find a more recent version of the "software that only runs in 14.04", a different software or use an old, already supported, USB WiFi device instead. – GabrielaGarcia Oct 23 '18 at 15:05
