No wifi or touchpad working in OEM Laptop (XFCE)

I haven't been able to get wifi or the touchpad working on a OEM laptop i got my hands to,
the model is Vero K146 but im certain its just OEM rebranding.

without more info, it's not possible for anyone here to help you.

if your not sure, always include the terminal output of inxi -Fxxxz when making a help request.

that said, it seems that laptop is universally problematic on both windows and linux.

not much info available in english, use a translator browser extension like Mate if you need it translated

Sorry i was in a rush, Im surprised its a greek rebrand huh.

the wifi adapter is not even listed, and even on windows needs to be right next to the router to even barely work. so for wifi you might need to pickup a usb wifi adapter which are very cheap. the touchpad you could maybe get working, but again if it's not detected you would need to track down drivers that work for that touchpad. i think you should give up on the built in wifi and get a usb wifi, you'll likely spend a lot of time trying to get it working and if your even able to it will likely be trash to use.

for the touchpad, post:

libinput list-devices
hwinfo --mouse

if hwinfo is not installed, install it first.

And hardware info only shows my usb mouse.

if that laptop wasnt so obscure then i could maybe suggest a touchpad driver that may or may not work with it but theres next to nothing out there in regards to that laptop and linux other than they dont play well together. that laptop doesnt even play well with the OS is was made to work with so thats not usually a good indicator.

all i could say is try other kernels, start with the older ones like 3.16, 4.4, 4.9, 4.14

check hwinfo on each kernel and see if it's detected at all so you can at least get the hardware info
