No Wi-Fi Adapter Found

Clear linux does not recognise WIFI Adapter

Name of controller: RTL8821CE

A General description can be find at: RTL8821CE - REALTEK

Apparently the device is supported by kernel versions [5.9 and newer] which means clear linux runs a kernel that support it.

Source: Hardware for Linux

So how Can I fix it? Help me out please :pray:t2: I really love Clear Linux it was love at first sight but I’d can not longer use it If can’t connect my computer to internet 🥲

Bonus question: Why can I use bluetooth but no WiFI? The single-chip controller is actually the same.

It looks like we simply didn’t turn this new driver on when we moved to kernel 5.9.1. I’ll enable it now and it should show up in a few days.

Thank you for your prompt response :slight_smile:

Can you please confirm if you could enable it?

In the mean time is there any solution I can apply to fix it?

Since I can’t connect my computer to internet to get system updates probably I might need reinstall the operative system with an ISO that includes the solution. Is a new ISO of Clear Linux going to be available to be download? When?

@alej4ndro91 in a few days he said.until then you can install a package provided by them(realtek) manually
