Hello everyone! Bit new here so I apologize if this is the wrong forum but figured might as well post here since I’ve only been using Endeavour for a week or two and the solution might be obvious
Anyways, my PC has always had a bit of a problem finding WiFi networks on Endeavour. I did a bit of digging and realized that my PC wasn’t recognizing any WiFi interfaces at all. Thankfully my ethernet worked fine and after I installed linux-firmware my WiFi problems mostly went away
However today my KDE desktop kinda sorta broke and I got on with trying to fix it from the terminal after CTRL+ALT+F3 on the login screen (not the main topic of this post since I don’t want to combine multiple topics into a post)
However I quickly realized that I couldn’t actually carry out most of the solutions because I was not connected to the internet. I ran ip link show and it only showed loopback and no other interfaces. Sure enough even when I plugged in ethernet cable, still no internet
I rebooted multiple times and it was broken all except one times. The time the internet did work fine was when I booted up my EndeavourOS liveboot from a USB so I can access some files I needed for tomorrow. Surprisingly enough, when I took out the liveboot USB and booted back into my normal system so I could attempt to return to fixing it, the internet worked! I did a quick update and after trying a couple more things, rebooted. I then once more had no internet, and unfortunately this time, livebooting from the USB once and then returning to my normal boot didn’t magically fix it this time
I’m kind of at a loss, does anyone have any sort of suggestions? Thank you!
Strange that your ethernet isn’t working either from the live boot.
without internet it’s hard to copy/paste logs eh?
Do you see any error messages in dmesg that might be related to the network? dmesg --level=emerg,alert,crit,err,warn
what do you see hardware wise? lspci -k
is it loading the firmware? dmesg | grep firmware
perhaps the module is providing some info? dmesg | grep iwlwifi
Hello everyone! Sorry for the late response, was a bit busy with finals
In the end I just ended up reinstalling my system. This fixed the ethernet driver but not really the wifi card
Apparently after doing some Googling though it seems like there might be an issue with my WiFi card specifically (MediaTek Wi-Fi 6 MT7921) as lots of people seem to be having problems with it both on Linux and Windows. Also I probably should’ve mentioned this earlier but I am indeed dual booting (already have secure and fast boot disabled though)
