I installed Zorin os in my computer yesterday but when I open wifi in it, there I see "wifi adapter not found" while I have inserted Wifi mini adapter in my computer. Please help..
- First wire up or use your phone as hotspot.
- run the updater
- check the app additional drivers
If it doesn't work we need the name of your adapter.
@rrajbhar Make sure Software Updater is set to point to "Main Server" (not a regional server) for best results.
I tried this but in "additional drivers" option "No Additional Drivers" is showing. I have 600M Wireless-N Mini USB Adapter "802.11N" please help me I am very upset.
I tried setting it to "Main server" but no change. Please Help..
Let's see if the system recognize your dongle.
Yes, you can see here the system is showing my wifi adapter at the top. What should I do now please tell me.
Is your "secure boot" in BIOS disabled? If not disabled it, it may conflict with your dongle.
Try this (it may be a hit'n'miss), requires net connection to execute and disabled secure boot;
sudo apt install git build-essential git clone https://github.com/lwfinger/rtw88.git cd rtw88 make sudo make install sudo modprobe rtw_8723de
Okay, lets try another driver for you dongle;
sudo apt-get install build-essential git dkms linux-headers-generic git clone https://github.com/kelebek333/rtl8192fu-dkms sudo dkms add ./rtl8192fu-dkms sudo dkms build rtl8192fu/22.214.171.124 sudo dkms install rtl8192fu/126.96.36.199
Do we actually know what specific chipset the OP's dongle has, other than it is Realtek?
Note this "How To" post dated yesterday re certain USB wifi chipsets and drivers.
Sir I have tried this method as mentioned by you but still I am getting the error of "wifi adapter not found".
Is this the driver you are using?
Yes, I am using this driver. But it is not working please help.
What is the output of
sudo apt install inxi
USB network - is that a Wifi Dongle?
Yes this is a wifi dongal.
Wifi Dongles are not always supported in Linux...
If you can provide the make and model, we can try looking it up.
