HiI have installed ubuntu 18.04 on my new HP 14q-cs0009TU laptop but it's internal WiFi not working. It seems kernal driver failed to load wifi. I tried load third party drivers but it didn't work. Please help me in loading it's internal wifi.
Once you have downloaded your new driver, you'll need to install it. In Windows, use a built-in utility called Device Manager, which allows you to see all of the devices recognized by your system, and the drivers associated with them.
Context:The drivers are proprietary components of BroadComm. Ubuntu (a non proprietary) will not be able to install the packages due to authentication failure even though they are downloaded.Hence the separate steps are to be followed to get wifi enabled.This does not get you bluetooth though. It may need another set of steps.
wow great postthanks google and thank you.trying to determine if all chromebooks have all the chipset drivers in them.so if I upgrade and replace an Atheros with an Intel to get faster wifi, its plug and play, with driver automatically enabled on new boot up?
Being a certified scrimp, reviving old PCs that will otherwise be thrown away by the Uni has become a hobby of mine. To connect these desktops at home where I only have access to wifi, I bought and used cheap USB wifi dongles from ebay. Unfortunately, as of the time I am wrote this article, they don't work right away on an Ubuntu machine and some work needs to be done. It did not help that there are a number of drivers out their (5 github pages!) so I had to test them one by one. The solution below is what worked for me. Make sure that no other RTL8812 driver is installed. I have tested these on Ubuntu 18.04 and 20.04 LTS. 2b1af7f3a8
