No wifi after latest update
« on: Fri Dec 22 18:26:25 2023 »
Hi Team,

I have an old HP 650 laptop that I use as my daily driver. I updated Nutyx yesterday and lost my wifi completely. I swapped the hard drive out with another older distro and wifi was back, so I know the hardware hasn't failed.  To check that something didn't break during the upgrade, I downloaded the latest XFCE ISO of Nutyx, it didn't see my wifi hardware.There has been talk of dropping older wifi drivers from the kernel for some time. Has that day finally come?  I believe  the wifi card is Ralink 802.11b/g/n WiFi adapter.

Regards

Thanks Thierry

So glad it is working. I switched to some other distros I had preloaded on other hard drives, it was painfully slow.

Have a great Xmas, mine here in NZ is just about done.

Regards

Graeme
