I did try the forum search before posting this but I'm finding it's pretty much useless lately as it keeps ignoring my search terms.
I searched for no wireless after install & got "ignored: after install no" with the results
I just tried to access the internet with the new HP 245 G6 & discovered there was no wireless networking available.
In the Notification Area icon when it's clicked on there's no Enable Wifi or Wireless or whatever it says, only Ethernet.
Trying to create a wifi connection there's no device shown when going through the steps to create.
It worked fine with Windows 10 so I know it works, I know nothing about this stuff really but it looks like maybe the wireless driver isn't recognised by MX?
It's enabled in the BIOS, sudo rfkill list all shows:
Code: Select all
0: hci0: Bluetooth Soft blocked: no Hard blocked: no
Code: Select all
