I just installed version 19.10 of Ubuntu, and after rebooting, the wifi symbol is not visible in the settings anymore. When I search for it, it says there is no wifi adapter found. I am very new to Ubuntu, and nothing I have tried seems to work. What can I do?

Does your device have a an ethernet port. Run " ifconfig" and look for eth0?

Try both commands:

Iwconfig
Ifconfig

Iwconfig is for wireless connections
Ifconfig should show all connections ( ethos or enps0 will be wired, lo is loop back don’t worry about that one, and wlp3s0 would be a wireless connection)


What’s the output of them both

lspci is good, but
Code:
inxi -Nn
portrays the hardware better, and gives you info you can use to chase down the driver that you need.

How do I know what driver I need? It says driver: N/A

First we need to know exactly what wireless chipset you have.
Then we can figure out which driver you need :)

And that's exactly what inxi does, it gives you clues. It shows you the same info as lpci or lshw do, but in a better presentation. Whoever wrote inxi deserves a medal, it's a great and flexible tool, and for a command line program has a great presentation layer.

it appears that the output of ifconfig is showing your bluetooth interface bnep0. its alllcoated an ip and appears to be up and running but sadly no wireless interface is picked up.

i think it could be a driver issue
