[SOLVED] Wifi driver disappeared

Postby evaldas » Jul 24th, '18, 15:06

Hello,

After I reinstalled Mageia 6 and tried to update (there was a lot of mistakes), suddenly wifi driver disappeared.
may I ask some help how I can reinstall the drivers?

You should at the very least provide some actual details. What updates were there, and what "lot of mistakes" ? Also you don't even mention which driver you were using, or what wireless chipset (vendor & product ID) you are using ...

Please provide the output of the following commands:

Code: Select all
lspcidrake -v | grep -iE "wlan|wifi|wireless|net"
ps -ef | grep -v grep | grep -iE "net|wpa"
rpm -qa --last|head -50


and, as root:
Code: Select all
ifconfig -a
rfkill list all
systemctl status network.service -al
journalctl -ab | grep -iE "fw|firmware|iwl|wifi|wire|80211"
