No Wifi on fresh installation

Hi All,
I have installed EOS Xfce alongside Win 11 on a new machine. I did it all cabled and just now realized that on EOS the Network menu shows no Wifi Networks (on Win the Wifi is working fine). In the ‘Advanced Network Configuration’ I have added the connection details (SSID, PW) but nothing happens.

rfkill list:

0: ideapad_wlan: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: no

Device-1: Realtek RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet

Thank you so much both :+1:. I first installed the driver for realtek 8852be and after reboot Wifi is now up and running :star_struck:.

yes searching for this will show you needed drivers

Okay, would never have known :flushed:

As it was not showing any device name and all output for it was generic the hardware IDs are mostly valid search terms :wink:
