I've searched for the past month and half for a solution, yet nothing has worked. My computer cannot pick up on any wifi networks and says "No network devices available". I have tried installing multiple different ubuntu/lubuntu operating systems, but they all have the same problem. Thus, I think it's something wrong with my hardware? Or that there is a problem with the computer reading my Wireless Card? Not sure...

I am currently using Lubutu 18.04 Bionic Beaver Kernel 4.15.0-20 generic I have internet access via ethernet cable

I have tried in the terminal...

THIS CONTINUES BUT IT IS TOO LONG FOR ME TO POST.

Any help is greatly appreciated. I have used lubuntu for a year and love it. I don't want to switch back to Windows.

  • Is there some option in the BIOS/EFI to enable/disable wireless? Please edit your question to show the result of the terminal command: dmesg | grep -i sdio Welcome to Ask Ubuntu. – chili555 Mar 4 at 13:37
