I've been trying to follow around to fix my wifi problems, however I don't know how to find out my actual wifi device name. The problem is that on Ubuntu (14.04) there seems to be no indication that the computer is aware it has a wifi adapter (it definitely has one) and it can't connect to or see wireless networks.
I guess it could be a device driver problem, but I can't find out the name of my adapter, other than that it is either one of the two:
Intel Corporation Device 24fd (rev 78) Subsystem: Intel Corporation Device 1010
Which don't seem to match with what I need to figure out which driver to install.
Here is the output Network Controller part of the output of
01:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Device 24fd (rev 78) Subsystem: Intel Corporation Device 1010 Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 11 Memory at dc100000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=8K] Capabilities: <access denied>
And here is the
