• New wifi card question.


    I’ve ordered a new wifi card for one of my laptops, do I have to reinstall Antergos or will it be recognized immediately after replacement?

    Everybody is a genius, but if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing its stupid.

  • I would assume it should be recognized automatically, but I’m honestly not 100% sure. Hopefully someone else here knows the answer!

  • Well the card will arrive tomorrow, so I’ll just do the switch and we’ll see. I think this is an unusual question, because I can’t find anything on it on internet either. I will report my findings back here.

  • Thats a question 😉

    linux give a f*** about hardware changes most drivers and firmware (if needed) will be loaded on the run… while booting.

  • I had to replace my Realtek in my TP with an Intel card recently due to poor kernel driver support. Worked without any intervention on boot up.

  • I can validate @triode13 and @joekamprad findings. I’ve installed the new card and it got recognized as if it was there years ago!!
