No WiFi network adapter found! What do I do now?


So I just installed Linux Ubuntu 18.04 on a MacBook Pro from around 2012. But now I ran into that one problem.
I can't connect to the wifi, it says there is no wifi adapter found in the wifi settings. I already watched multiple YT videos on how to fix that but nothing worked. I do have a connection per cable now but I have to use it for my desktop pc.
I hope someone can help me to fix this problem.

Stay healthy,
Tim Berger

find out what brand , make and model it is, then search on that criteria, along with that it is a mac . you might just need a driver.

You could try the command lspci (list pci devices) in a terminal. It should return information about what wireless chipset is installed (it normally does, but I have no experience with Linux on Macs).

If it does, post the relevant portion of the output here, being careful to surround any terminal output with "code" tags, which become available when you click the "Advanced" button beneath the compose/edit post window.
