New bee: No Wi-Fi adapter Found - Internet Connectivity Issues

Post by madhuakumar » 2020/06/06 14:42:51

Hello all,

A new bee to CentOS, I just installed CentOS 8.1 on Thinkpad E14. For some reasons I am unable to internet via WiFi.
WiFi option shows No WiFi adapter found Make sure you have a Wi-Fi plugged and turned on.

Using dnf search wireless, installed driver related packages, but no luck in connecting to internet via WiFi.
Options that I have tried are below.

Please help to fix this issue, suggestions, ideas are much appreciated.

[root@localhost ~]# dnf search wireless

Post the output from lspci -nn | grep -i net
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!

So, as far as I can tell, that adapter ought to be supported by the CentOS 8.1 kernel as you can see by running grep -i 8086 /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/modules.* | grep -i 02f0. If you run lsmod | grep -i iwlwifi do you get results? How about the output from dmesg | grep -i iwl ?

Thank you for your time and suggestions.

Here is the output & tried contacting Lenovo for drivers support to give a try but no luck as currently it is limited to Windows.

would wish to try [ 5.099157] iwlwifi 0000:00:14.3: check git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/firmware/linux-firmware.git but bit worried i might mess with kernel.
