I've been having problems getting wi-fi to work on my Huawei Matebook X Pro with Ubuntu 16.04.5 . The problem seems to be similar to the one found here, Wifi not working (Intel) on HP Spectre x360 13, but one of the links to a firmware download is dead. Also, that answer is for 14.04 - is it suitable for 16.04?
lo no wireless extensions. bnep0 no wireless extensions.

BUT also, someone helped me troubleshoot IRL, we did a kernel update, and the wifi now works, so I guess this problem can be closed.
