Wifi card not found in almost any OS (BIOS setting?)

by guioconnor » November 4th, 2018, 9:34 pm

Hi. I've been reading this forum a lot recently especially about WiFi configurations. I can see there are a lot of people with WiFi issues, but I couldn't find an answer to mine, so I hope this is not duplicated.

I bought a Linx 12x64 with Windows 10 recently and I used it for a few weeks without a problem but as my intention was to run a different OS, I tried installing Ubuntu, Debian and, as of today, ChromeOS. The problem in all of those is that a WiFi card can't be found.

Installing ChromeOS in particular (using CloudReady) is not even possible because the system expects a connection to be able to run the installer, so whatever this issue is, seems to be at a very low level.

If I hadn't seen it working in Windows I'd be very tempted to say my unit is faulty, but it's probably not the case.

I am by now a little lost on what to look for, so I wonder if anyone knows why the WiFi card can't be found an how to make it reappear.

Hi, any thoughts on this? I've been looking for more and more info on this, but I don't seem to land on any new information. For all practical purposes, it would seem the wifi hardware is dead, but this is unlikely because it was working properly before I removed Windows.

I'd be most grateful for any help on this.
