WiFi adapter is missing - not recognized

hi, after installing Manjaro xfce, i was unable to see the wireless network list. when i searched for it, i saw a post saying it might be because network manager is not starting and used the command,

sudo systemctl enable networkmanager

and and i got this,

Failed to enable unit: Unit file networkmanager.service does not exist.

how to connect my laptop with a wifi network now?
(this is my very first Linux OS and i know nothing in it)
(i switched to KDE and i faced the issue on that too and its working)

In *nix land most everything is case sensitive.

when i typed as NetworkManager, it didn't took that as a command

$ sudo systemctl status NetworkManager

got this,

��� NetworkManager.service - Network Manager

but it didn't enable wireless network.

No, you may have to . In xfce one goes to Menu > Settings > Network Connections.

but in there i see only eathernet.

See the "+" bottom left? That is a criptic way of saying add connection... :wink:

Also try searching the forum, maybe wireless network

I see that you are new here: Joined 37 mins ago Read 19m . So it takes a bit of time to learn some of the self help tools around, like the magnifying glass ( top right) for searching the forum.

I Well, i did setup wireless that way earlier. Maybe i did it wrong. I'll check the forums. Thanks for the help. :slightly_smiling_face:

There is a Manjaro Wiki too.

And of course Arch. https://wiki.archlinux.org/ If you search wireless network in the search box to the right, you will be offered language choices.

And of course come back here. :slightly_smiling_face:

This would help identify your issues:

Post output please.

Sorry for replying late and Thanks. I'll look in to it.

If your bios has the option, disable your NIC & WIFI, then power down. Remove your battery and power cord. Leave sit for a minute. Restart, boot to BIOS, enable NIC & WIFI, boot to Manjaro.

Then issue:

sudo rfkill unblock all
sudo ip link set enp3s0 up

I have the impression that this is ethernet, while OP looks for WiFi card missing (the Topic title is wrong)

Edit: ## Topic title changed to reflect the actual issue

No, my bios don't have that kind of options. I checked it twice.

No, maybe wifi driver is missing. Its a 6 months old laptop.

[kavin@kavin-pc ~]$ sudo rfkill unblock all
[sudo] password for kavin:
[kavin@kavin-pc ~]$ sudo ip link set enp3s0 up
Cannot find device "enp3s0"
[kavin@kavin-pc ~]$

Anyway anyhow you need to post your HW info
