This is the output
Did you run this command while connected to internet (by some working means)?
No because i couldn't, it isn't connecting to any wifi connection i have , but i tried wired network and it worked and i was able to reinstall network manger but wifi still isn't working , it isn't even showing wifi connections to choose from in visible networks so reinstalling network manager unfortunately didn't work
Another user on the forum is also using this card and having trouble. I will ask you the same I asked him ( I am currently awaiting his reply to this...)
Can you please post the terminal output of
What this looks like is that more than one driver is installed, creating a conflict. If the output of lspci -nn yields multiple RealTek drivers, we will need to remove some.
yes, here is the output ,

so if i need to remove anything it's ok as long as it doesn't affect anything in my laptop but i'll leave that to your judgement since i know nothing about this
Interesting... I do not see the known conflicting drivers listed on your machine.
Can you please try the steps outlined in this post?:
Once that is done, in terminal run:
sudo modprobe -rfv iwlwifi
sudo modprobe -v iwlwifi
Reboot and test wifi.
I did everything but i used gedit instead of nano because i couldn't use nano , i hope that's ok.. but unfortunately it didn't work ... now the wifi connections don't show in my visible networks menu so i don't even know if the activation error is still there or not
-v means Verbose. When you ran this command, did it relay anything in the terminal?
since i rebooted the output is now deleted, is it safe to do this command again to see the output?
It is. All it is supposed to do is activate the wifi module.
Can you run
lspci | grep -i intel
You should see your
Network controller: Intel Corporation Centrino Wireless-N 1000 [Condor Peak] listed.
In front of it is a series of numbers at the very front. Mine looks like:
05:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Dual Band Wireless-AC 3168NGW [Stone Peak] (rev 10)
You see mine is
Grab the scheme of numbers you see on yours and tack it on to
lspci -vv -s - For example mine would look like:
lspci -vv -s 05:00.0
That should show which driver is in use. Something like:
Kernel driver in use: iwlwifi Kernel modules: iwlwifi
Relay what driver is shown as in use.
the series number is 02:00.0 and both kernel driver and modules are iwlwifi
This is a very strange outcome...
Can you try reaching the
Advanced Options for Zorin by rebooting and following this method:
From Advanced Options, choose an Earlier Kernel to boot from. Proceed to normal boot, then once logged in, test wifi.
It worked one time using esc key and i booted using zorin 5.71 or sth , there were 4 options the higher one had a sequence of numbers starting with 5 and ending with 72 then second choice was recovery mode for the same sequence of numbers then the third choice was the same as the first choice except that it ends in 71 , and the fourth option is the third option but recovery mode , i booted using the third choice but the problem isn't solved , i still can't see any wifi network in visible networks menu ... right now i'm trying to boot in recovery mode but everytime i press esc it goes to the startup menu so it's going to take a while and i don't know if it's even worth it or if it's ok to do so..
Booting worked or the Wifi worked on the 5.15.0-71 kernel?
Ok... here is where we stand currently:
We have probed the module and that did not work.
We have tried it on a known working kernel that worked prior to it ceasing to work - but that did not work.
We have set the appropriate options and that did not work...
And we have ensured a working supported driver.
At this point, I can only suspect that the Wifi Card itself is experiencing failure - resulting in the internet suddenly ceasing to work.
You may need to use a Wifi Dongle - or replace the card.
I see so at where we stand , i can either check it's hardware or use wifi dongle well anyways thanks alot for your help . I hope you have a good day
