WiFi adapter not found
Incomplete, NormalPublic


Hi fellow PureOS users,

I am trying to install PureOS on my girlfriends HP Stream laptop. The WiFi icon does not exist and when I searched for WiFi on PureOS, it said that 'WiFi adapter not found'. Please help. I did manage to install Pure OS onto my own laptop though.

Do you know what model your Wifi adapter is? It may require proprietary drivers to function which we do not include in PureOS.

@FaiscaOS Please create a separate issue report - even if it seems similar, there are many different wifi devices.

@ringonz Please provide more details about the failing wifi device, otherwise we are unable to help you any further.
