Antergos is my favorite Linux distribution of all time. Recently however I got a new laptop (the old one I’m writing this on is falling apart) and decided to install Antergos on it. Well it turns out that the new laptop (a Hewlett-Packard 15-bs013dx notebook) doesn’t seem to like Linux all that much as not only was the Antergos minimal ISO unable to connect to wireless, Netrunner Core wasn’t able to either pre or post-install.
Additionally, a direct connection to the router via USB was unsuccessful too (I don’t have Ethernet cables). The card is Realtek brand but I don’t have the version for it at this moment. Information of note is that typing in iwconfig produces two entries, both of which state “no wireless extension available”.
Supposedly there’s a fix, but it depends on the OS already being installed. Cinchi can’t install to the hard drive in the first place because I can’t connect. So it’s a chicken and egg problem.
Is there some way to solve this problem or am I doomed to using something besides Antergos?
