Which usb wireless adapter?

hello :slight_smile:
I would like to buy an USB wireless adapter, that is working out of the box, without installing aur/git drivers :slight_smile:
(since unfortunately my new laptop has a wireless card not recognized)

please could you recommend me one?
thanks :slight_smile:

Once it was supported why would have been dropped

The first step is to check whether the appropriate kernel modules have been loaded. According to your computer’s product page, your HP ProBook has a Qualcomm Atheros Wireless Network Adapter, in which case the right kernel module is ath11k_pci

Can you run:

$ lsmod | grep ath

Also, does the Wifi connection work on a Live USB?

While you’re at it, you might as well post the result of:

$ lspci -nn | grep -i net

As @anthony93 pointed out above.

If it is in fact this chip? Qualcomm Inc Atheros QCNFA765 (17cb:1103 105b:e0c4)
Looks like it uses ath11k which is new. It’s probably missing the firmware. Maybe?

Please check dmesg

sudo dmesg | eos-sendlog

Also check

 lsmod | grep ath
lspci -nn | grep -i net

Edit: The module i think is ath11k_pci


Check if the firmware is installed.

Should be possibly


Edit: I have it on my system

Did you try using modprobe?

Edit: This is a bit dated.

Edit2: As far as i can tell it should be working by now.

thanks, but it should be the rtl8852be
not the one listed there

Okay because you have two different posts. So on the other post i said you just need to install

yay -S rtl8852be-dkms-git


@manuel also passed that on in the same post so you must have missed it?
