Cant get wi-fi on Budgie-remix


Ethernet OK, but when I try configuring wireless opening the settings box, all is semi-opaque, so as to prevent any entry at all.
Does this make sense?
This is my first newbie post.

This likely has nothing to do with Budgie.

What is the make/model of the computer, what distro/version of Linux loaded, and what wireless chipset is installed. (Running the command lspci in a terminal should provide that last bit of information. Depending on the distro, you may have run it as root.) The more you tell us, the easier it is for us to help you: http://www.linuxquestions.org/linux/...Ask_a_Question

Hello and welcome to the forum

To expand a bit on frankbell's request, please open a terminal and post the results of...

Code:
lspci -nnk | grep -i net -A2
If your wireless adapter is USB, use this command instead...

Code:
lsusb
Please also include the results from these commands...

Code:
lsmod
Code:
iwconfig
If your system is a laptop, please also include...

Code:
rfkill list
Regards...
