Question wi-fi problem with Yeeloong 8101b laptop.


Hi,
The wi-fi monitor led is on but no signal icon. I don't know how to set up the network manager. Anyone can help me?

Find out what your wifi card is (lspci or lsusb) and and your current status with these commands. Just post the network bits - not the whole output

ifconfig wlan0 up
iwconfig wlan0

They were the commands. The 'up' tells it to tell the card that it can talk now.

Have a read here. Someone sorted it.
