I have gone through most answers on this topic and yet, my system is not able to detect any Wifi networks.

Upon rebooting, it does not even show the option of Wifi on the dropdown of the wifi icon on the top bar (although the Wifi icon is there), it just has the option of Enable Networking.

If I run -

sudo ifconfig eno1 up (eno1 is the logical name of my wifi)

and sudo service network-manager restart

then it gives the option of Enable Wifi on the dropdown of the Wifi icon, but still it does not detect any networks.

This is the output of nmcli dev -

DEVICE TYPE STATE CONNECTION enp8s0 ethernet unavailable --
eno1 wifi unavailable --
lo loopback unmanaged --

This is the output for lspci -knn | grep Net -A3; rfkill list -

And this is the output for sudo lshw -C network -

  • Please edit your question and add output of lspci -knn | grep Net -A3; rfkill list terminal command.

  • You have a hardware block to wireless device. It could be drivers or blacklist issue. There are some issues dealing with it: 760838 and 253632, for example.

  • @Redbob thanks. I have already tried the answers on the first link you mention and they don't seem to help. The problem with the answers in the second link is that they require a wired connection to the laptop and in my case that does not work either!!

  • @user1993 The purpose of the "wired connection" is having internet so you can download and install the packages. It can be any other, even a USB tethered connection from Android or other.
