Wifi networks are visible but not connecting in xubuntu 21

2021-07-08, 11:54 AM

Hi all, I bought a brand new Ideapad 5, without any OS. Initially, I installed Xubuntu 20.04 on it, then the touchpad was not working and also the wifi networks were showing but not connecting.

Then I installed Xubuntu 21, the touchpad started working but the wifi still gives the same error that the password is incorrect, which is obviously not because it is a hotspot from my mobile. I tried installing drivers from https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000005511/wireless.html and also followed this https://easylinuxtipsproject.blogspot.com/p/intel-wifi.html but no luck.


WLAN + Bluetooth™ - 802.11ac 2x2 Wi-Fi + Bluetooth 5.0, M.2 Card (taken from product specifications)


some the info about the wifi adapter and the things I tried -
