WiFi adapter is missing - not recognized

Sorry for replying late and Thanks. I’ll look in to it.

If your bios has the option, disable your NIC & WIFI, then power down. Remove your battery and power cord. Leave sit for a minute. Restart, boot to BIOS, enable NIC & WIFI, boot to Manjaro.

Then issue:

sudo rfkill unblock all
sudo ip link set enp3s0 up

I have the impression that this is ethernet, while OP looks for WiFi card missing (the Topic title is wrong)

Edit: ## Topic title changed to reflect the actual issue

No, my bios don’t have that kind of options. I checked it twice.

No, maybe wifi driver is missing. Its a 6 months old laptop.

[kavin@kavin-pc ~]$ sudo rfkill unblock all
[sudo] password for kavin:
[kavin@kavin-pc ~]$ sudo ip link set enp3s0 up
Cannot find device “enp3s0”
[kavin@kavin-pc ~]$

Anyway anyhow you need to post your HW info

inxi -SMNxxxz

Use wgetpaste if you are on TTY

hi, ill check what’s TTY is and post that as soon as i can.

Try

Provide some more info please:

rfkill list
cat /etc/modprobe.d/*.conf | grep rtl
lsmod | grep rtl
lsmod | grep wl

sure.

[kavin@kavin-pc ~]$ rfkill list

these commands,

cat /etc/modprobe.d/*.conf | grep rtl
and

lsmod | grep wl

didn’t work.

Post this

lspci -v | grep d723

It seems this adapter is not compatible with Linux or there are no Linux drivers in the kernel.
It is suggested (Archwiki) to try use ndiswrapper if you can get the relevant WinOS driver.
Though, there is a github repo that reports having a driver for this chip.
You may want to try installing it (instructions included)

i have no idea what you want you are asking. :worried:

can you explain a little please?

thank you!

I’ll check those.:slightly_smiling_face:

It’s the Github repo I pointed, you are lucky!!
You just need to install that AUR package and you should have your driver.
Search the AUR for “rtl8723de” and install the package that will pop out.
