Ubilinux wifi does not work

manamana Posts: 1New Member

I just obtained the Up care a few weeks ago. Install ubilnux latest version on it. Everything went fine, but the wifi does not seem to work. The device was not found on the system despite the driver was installed correctly. I tried

sudo apt-get purge firmware-ampak-ap6214a

and then install the firmware back. It was installed successfully

Then I reboot and looked for wifi device. It is still not found. When install other wifi dongle, it is working ok. Could this be a chip faulty?

Does anyone suggest method (linux command) to test whether the wifi chip is working?

Thanks

    Hi @mana ,

    You could try with the following commands to get info a check if your WiFi is working:

    iwconfig : get WiFi network name available.
    ip link

    Check available WiFi AP:
    sudo iwlist scan
