There is no wifi icon in network settings | WIFI not working after installing manjaro

Hi. I cannot switch on wifi because there is no wifi icon. I have been connecting to the internet using USB and Bluetooth tethering from my phone. Please enable wifi on my system so I can connect to wifi.

:+1: Welcome to Manjaro! :+1:

Broadcom adapters are… pieces of $hit not the best under Linux, and as kernel 5.9 is EOL, try upgrading your kernel to:

  1. 5.4 LTS (Long Term Support)
  2. 5.10 (LTS candidate)

in that order and then try again.


P.S. Please read this:

and use inxi --admin --verbosity=7 --filter --no-host --width in the future as that gives us the minimum required information… (Personally Identifiable Information like serial numbers and MAC addresses will be filtered out by the above command whereas in inxi -F will give us PII… :man_shrugging:

Hi, how do I upgrade my kernel?

Please see our wiki article:

If you would get stuck somewhere, please give the paragraph number and the exaxt instruction and what doesn’t work and we’ll take it from there…
