Porteus wifi not working realtek 8821ce Lenovo Laptop

Post#1 by Jeff Paul » 27 Jan 2021, 14:37

I had installed v3,v4,v5 versions of porteus but the wifi is not working, could anyone please tell me how to get it working? I really like this distro and I don't want to switch just because of a wifi problem.

PS I checked the previous post about the realtek8821 wifi not working in this forum, but I am using the desktop version...

Please check , dmesg and lspci to find out if realtek 8821ce has been found and listed . If yes, look for the correct firmware and add to /lib/firmware.

If not, compile and load driver from this source..

Thank you for replying so quickly, I am working right now so I will upload the results later, but if it is founded and listed, from where do I find the correct firmware?
