I cannot get wpasupplicant, wireless-tools, and also lib, iwconfig (Iget ifconfig) to operate on my Server 18.04 install.
I have Windows 10 on laptop. External HD with 18.04 Desktop and 18.04 Server. Wireless works fine on the other two OS, but not non-GUI Server CLI. I can’t install packages with no wireless.
I AM ABLE to go to https://packages.ubuntu.com/ and get any package I want via search. I AM ABLE to save these *.deb files on the /home drive of the server partition, reboot into Server, run some sudo dpkg and sudo apt-get install commands (all CLI). Some of it appears to install some but I get a lot of errors too. My guess is it’s trying to reach out over wireless for some of the packages parts but no wireless enabled? I’m not sure what a good order of package installs to enable wireless would be. It seems that this issue would have a “recipe” for a good method and order of installation of certain packages to enable your intel 7265 network controller (wlo1), if not a basic recipe for installing packages for wireless without wireless or ethernet access.
Remember, I can surf the net with Desktop and download packages to a server directory.
Right now every package seems to be looking for missing parts. I’m hunting with a blindfold.
I'm using WPA encryption.
@chili555 I can't use iwconfig because I can't install wireless-tools without internet? I can't seem to install packages from my dual accessible drive shown in the picture above? I also get the following with sudo cat /etc/netplan/*.yaml: enter image description here Thank you for the welcome.
