Wi-Fi not connecting on laptop

So I'm running Manjaro off of a USB drive, and nothing I've done so far has been able to let me connect to wi-fi. I think it might not be detecting the wireless adapter but I'm not sure. Any help would be great.

Trying to fix wifi issues on a live boot is very limiting. To install and use a dkms driver and the linux headers requires rebooting. As soon as you reboot any changes are lost. For that reason working on driver installs off a live boot disk is pointless.

Install Manjaro if you would like assistance setting up your drivers. On the live disk you are very limited in options.

Thank you! After trying to connect a few times after installing it worked.
