I got a Lenovo ThinkPad E580 and I installed Ubuntu 18.04. However, in WiFi settings, the message "No Wi-Fi Adapter Found" is displayed. The "Additional Drivers" tab in "Software & Updates" doesn't show anything related to WiFi. I also ran this command in the Terminal:

Output of lspci -knn | grep Net -A3;rfkill list:

  • What is the exact response to the terminal command: sudo modprobe r8822be Welcome to Ask Ubuntu.

Thanks everybody for giving answers. When I enter the modprobe command the response is

error:could not insert '8821ce':required key not available

It seems this issue happens only on UEFI systems with enabled Secure Boot. Then disabling Secure Boot in UEFI (BIOS) settings solved the problem.

Thanks once again for giving me a clue.


Your machine is not detecting a wifi device only bluetooth.
Looks like you will need to build a kernel module for the realtek adapter.

You can try the instructions that chili555 posted in the link below

  • I don't believe he needs to build the driver. It already exists in 18.04. It isn't loading as expected and we need to find out why.
