I am running
ubuntu 17.04 on an
asus x205ta, and through much struggle and research finally got the wifi working. I was so happy and decided to restart the pc just to make sure and come to my knowledge it does not work, unless I run these commands in the terminal once again:
sudo modprobe brcmfmac
I am using a guide I found on another post here: How to install (L)Ubuntu 16.04 on the ASUS X205TA (F205TA)
I think the problem could be that maybe the
/etc/rc.local file that is suppose to be an executable is not becoming one or otherwise I have no clue. I am brand new to linux and this is my first time messing with it.
UPDATE: It is actually only the
sudo modprobe brcmfmac command I have to run that I know of now. Im not sure if the others still have to be ran or not. It is also worth mentioning that in the guide the wifi should work before these steps are taken and mine does not until these commands are issued.
rc.local file is executable so that is not the problem.
grep brcmfmac /etc/modprobe.d* returns
grep: /etc/modprobe.d: Is a directory
cat /etc/modprobe.d/* | grep brcmfmac returns
sudo grep brcmfmac /etc/modprobe.d/* returns
