Are you connecting to an existing SSID, or setting up a WiFi hotspot? Your post is very unclear. Please provide hardwarte & box info.

have you ran some cli command to see if your nic is up and running?
Code:
ip link 
ip link set wlan0 up
------
rfkill list all : to make sure nothing is blocked.
ip commands cheat sheet
https://access.redhat.com/sites/defa..._jcs_print.pdf

a script I wrote a long time ago that can get your wifi info and connected off command line, may need further modification, that depends on what network tools you have installed.

I already made the change from ifconfig to ip changes.
Code:
#!/bin/bash

#your wifi connection hardware name. it wlan0, wlo1 etc
wifiHW=wlo1

whatsmyline(){
echo ""
echo " mac                 essid                 key"

sudo iwlist wlan0 scan | while IFS= read -r line; do

    ## test line contents and parse as required
    [[ "$line" =~ Address ]] && mac=${line##*ss: }
    [[ "$line" =~ Encrypt ]] && key=${line##*key:}
    [[ "$line" =~ ESSID ]] && { essid=${line##*ID:}
        echo " $mac  $essid  $key"  #Prints all connections 
    } #end read

done
}

whatsmyIPconnection() {
	ip link | while ISF= read -r line ; do
	#test for wifi example
	if 	[[ "$line" =~ "$wifiHW" ]] && [[ "$line" =~ UP ]] ; 
	then
		echo "connection UP"
	else
		sudo ip link set "$wifiHW" up
	fi
done
}
whatsmyIPconnection

getConnected(){
	
	
	sudo iwconfig "$wifiHW" essid "$essid" key "$key"	
	
}

Also check that your kernel is loading the driver for your wifi card.

Code:
lsmod
