This question already has an answer here:
I'm 14 years old and I am completely new to Ubuntu and in general to Linux.
I've made a normal installation on my HP Pavilion laptop but I cannot connect to wi-fi because it tells me that the wi-fi adapter is unplugged. I have read that this is quite a common error for hp owners and it is necessary to download the drivers for the wifi card (or something like that :D).
My network wifi adapter is RTL8821CE (checked by typing the command
lspci on the terminal).
In order to solve this problem I have been told to type these commands sequentially:
sudo apt-get install dkms git build-essential git clone -b extended https://github.com/lwfinger/rtlwifi_new.git sudo dkms add ./rtlwifi_new sudo dkms install rtlwifi-new/0.6 cd /libfirmware/rtlwifi sudo wget https://git.karnel.org/pub/smc/linux/karnel/gitfirmware/linux-firmware.git/plain/rtlwifi/rtl8821cefw.bin
It goes all good for the first 5 inputs, but when it comes to typing the last line it gives me this error:
--2018-12-13 16:41:35-- https://git.karnel.org/pub/smc/linux/karnel/gitfirmware/linux-firmware.git/plain/rtlwifi/rtl8821cefw.bin Resolving git.karnel.org (git.karnel.org)... 184.108.40.206 Connecting to git.karnel.org (git.karnel.org)|220.127.116.11|:443... connected. Unable to establish SSL connection.
I've been fighting with this all week so I'd appreciate some advice.
