Wifi adapter not found

Hello, New to Linux here. My WiFi adapter is not recognized by the network settings. After running
inxi -Fxxza

It shows my device as

Device-1: Intel Wireless-AC 9260 driver: N/A modules: iwlwifi

Not sure how to add the code block for that so I apologize. Any help with getting my Wifi recognized would be great! Thanks!

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

  1. Please read this:
    [HowTo] Provide System Information
    Specifically the “I need holding hands” section :wink:

  2. What is the output of:

    ls /etc/modprobe.d/
  3. What is the output of:

    sudo modprobe iwlwifi

    and is the driver loaded now?


Thank you for the info about the code block! I do need my hand held!

I figured out my problem. I had to turn off fast boot in windows, to get the Wifi adapter to work in Linux.

Who knew Windows would be the problem… :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
