Zorin Lite - View WiFi Networks

New user to Zorin-lite, I installed it on my laptop and it works well but I cannot seem to find a way to show/browse any wifi networks. I can connect to a wifi manually if I know its name but surely there is a way to browse and select.

It may be the indicator plugin at fault. The Wifi Manager should show a list of all available networks.
You might try

sudo apt install --reinstall xfce4-statusnotifier-plugin


I ran into this same problem on my HP laptop. If I recall correctly, I had to Disable Legacy Mode in BIOS. Once I did that, I was able to see all available wireless networks.


That didn't solve the issue but thanks for mentioning it.

Thanks for the reply, I tried that but still nothing.
I don't even see a Wifi Manager. All I have is network and network connections.

I installed Zorin Lite and am quite fond of it but I cannot find the Wifi Manager.
I can connect to a wifi network manually by entering the name and password and all works well but I can't browse the networks.

There is no "cone" on my system tray and in accessories all I have is network connections and network.

it might be the status notifier of the wifi?

I'll check how to set this


right click the panel, panel > add new items > look for status notifier plugin


That did it!
