I bought a HP Stream 11 (Model 11-AK1035NR). I have installed Lubuntu 18.04 on a USB stick to use for it.
I have gotten the WiFi working before on this laptop after playing with it for a few hours. I had to install this again because of a crash on my USB stick. So WiFi is capable on this laptop, but I don't know exactly how I did it.
I have updated the kernel to Linux Kernel 5.2.2 with no success so far (although it does have the rtw88 which I have read is required). I've also looked around this site and saw a fix for RTL8821CE and then compiling a module and that didn't work either.
I have ran
dmesg and this is what I got in terms of the WiFi hardware:
[ 14.699016] rtw_pci 0000:01:00.0: Direct firmware load for rtw88/rtw8822c_fw.bin failed with error -2 [ 14.699025] rtw_pci 0000:01:00.0: failed to request firmware [ 14.706008] rtw_pci 0000:01:00.0: failed to load firmware [ 14.708202] rtw_pci 0000:01:00.0: failed to setup chip efuse info [ 14.710395] rtw_pci 0000:01:00.0: failed to setup chip information [ 14.720471] rtw_pci: probe of 0000:01:00.0 failed with error -22
