Bought a new HP 15q laptop with FreeDOS. Installed Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and Wi-Fi icon is not showing in taskbar.
$ lspci -nnk | grep -iA2 net 01:00.0 Ethernet controller : Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller [10ec:8168] (rev 15) DeviceName: Hanksville Gbe Lan Connection Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller [103c:8328] Kernel driver in use: r8169 Kernel modules: r8169 02:00.0 Network controller : Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. Device [10ec:d723] DeviceName: WLAN Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Device [103c:8319]
My kernel version is 4.13.0. All answers seems to be outdated for my kernel version and also the official Realtek download site only supports up to kernel version 4.7.
If anyone has any idea how to go about this problem, please help me. I would be very much thankful to you for your support and any help will be heartily appreciated.
