• wifi card not showing up


    Hey all, not sure if anyone could help me, but if I can get this fixed it would be a huge relief. I have the TP-Link Archer T6E AC1300 PCI Express card installed on my MB and it won’t show up in my KDE install.

    I’m running Antergos KDE latest version. Non LTS kernel. Everything is updated. I’ve ran “iw dev” and I get no read out. I run “ip link” and I see no “wlp” only enp is showing up. I did a little research and I found out “broadcom-wl” from yaourt is supposed to make this card work but it’s not working for me. I downloaded the “broadcom-wl” driver from yaourt and rebooted and my card still isn’t showing up. Please help me get this card working! : (

  • Welcome @kreasonos !

    who throws the terminal ?

    inxi -i
    

    ?

  • @judd What do you mean? Running that command doesn’t give me any output. It says command not found.

  • @kreasonos said in wifi card not showing up:

    @judd What do you mean? Running that command doesn’t give me any output. It says command not found.

    Of course, if it is not installed it will not give you any output

    sudo pacman -S inxi
    

    or you can make

    lspci -k
    

    You can also try to directly install by AUR the driver

    yaourt -S broadcom-wl
    

    and them reboot

  • @judd I did install the driver via AUR and rebooted and it did not work. Here is the output of “inxi -i”

  • Add dkms

    yaourt -S broadcom-wl-dkms
    

    reboot

  • @judd Ok did that. Here’s the output now:

    Also, “ip link” still doesn’t show anything “wlp” it only shows "enp"
    Here is the output of “ip link”

  • sudo systemctl enable NetworkManager.service
    
    sudo systemctl enable dhcpcd.service
    

    and then reboot

  • @judd OK, here are the new outputs:

    Also here is the kernel output of “lspci -k”

  • rare … does not appear …

    dmesg | grep wl
    

    edited sorry

  • @judd Ok, I get this output:

    Error for wireless request “Set Power Management” (8B2D) :
    GET failed on device wlan0 ; No such device.

    [EDITED] “dmesg | grep wl” gives no output.

    I also have a Linksys Max Stream AC600 USB adapter. Can we get that to work? When I plug it in and run “lsusb” I get this output:

    “ip link” output with the usb wireless device plugged in:

  • @kreasonos said in wifi card not showing up:

    [usr @ pc ~] $ dmesg | grep wl
    [usr @ pc ~]

    I’m sorry I can not continue to help you when I do not exist ** wl **:anguished:

  • @judd Please explain? I installed both broadcom-wl and broadcom-wl-dkms

  • In my ultrabox appears the module wl and I can connect, not so with your broadcom, look

    $ lspci -k
    Network controller: Broadcom Limited BCM43142 802.11b/g/n (rev 01)
    	Subsystem: Dell Wireless 1704 802.11n + BT 4.0
    	Kernel driver in use: wl
    	Kernel modules: bcma, wl
    

    appears in my configuration of Broadcom to be able to connect to ** wl ** which in your Broadcom not and I do not know how to continue helping you, some brain around here could do it, I will get out of my hands … sorry.

  • Before you told me that you have a wireless adapter, it may be easier to install the driver you need
