I have recently installed a fresh 18.04-lts ubuntu on a laptop. However, it is not possible to do much with it.
The first task involves connecting the machine to wifi which has been failing spectacularly.
My netplan config is as follows:
network: version: 2 renderer: networkd wifis: wlp6s0: dhcp4: no dhcp6: no addresses: [192.168.1.63/24] gateway4: 192.168.1.1 nameservers: addresses: [192.168.1.1, 18.104.22.168] access-points: "xyz": password: "passpass"
The netplan generate and apply command pass without any errors but do not perform the desired setup.
Ubuntu has also been kind enough to not include basics utilities like wireless-tools in its iso files.
Is there any clear end-to-end guide available on how to get this working? I have noted that there open bugs and questions for this unresolved for the past two years.
Kindly avoid posting replies that involve downloading packages. These are meaningless to a machine prior to internet setup.
