wifi is not working

Cannot detect any wifi even it does not shows the options for nearby wifis .I have tried resolving the issue by following some of the similar problems posted by some other people here previously, but none of them worked for me.

Also i have not english language as my mother tongue so please ignore if any mistakes made in grammer. Thanks for your time in advance.

Welcome to Manjaro.

And please be specific about the things you tried already.

  1. Search (Duckduckgo) for 'manjaro connect wifi'
  2. Read. See command suggested by @cscs
inxi -Nnz
  1. Open terminal, run command, copy. Open this thread, EDIT and click the 'cog' symbol.
Hide Details

here is what you will paste

  1. Find also in the forum command from @tbg
    inxi -Fxxxz
  2. Edit - type 'inxi -Fxxz' and
paste details

This text will be hidden

I followed the instructions given by @tbg in this solution Cannot see list of Wifi networks[SOLVED] as my laptop's configuration matched with that of the @shumakuma but the problem in my case persists. I tried installing the linux414-headers and the rtl8723de-dkms but I am not sure about them if installed properly and working or not. @freggel.doe

here is the terminal command result of inxi --full --verbosity=7 --filter --no-host

Try:

nmcli networking on

@michaldybczak did not worked.. it looks like this.. only wired connection is shown. It does not looks for the nearby wifi networks.

Show your network adapters:

inxi -N

[rishabh@Rishabh-PC ~]$ inxi -N
Network:   Device-1: Realtek RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet driver: N/A 
           Device-2: Realtek RTL8723DE 802.11b/g/n PCIe Adapter driver: N/A 
           Device-3: Realtek 802.11n WLAN Adapter type: USB driver: btusb 

Is it showing that the drivers are not available?

Hmm.... Your info differs from mine because you have different network cards, so I can't compare it so easily. I'm not an expert in the matter and I hope that one will step by here to clear the doubts.

So far what confuses me is that that WLAN is showed as usb driver. Maybe you have only external usb wifi device?

For me, my internal wifi card looks like that:

Qualcomm Atheros QCA6174 802.11ac Wireless Network Adapter driver: ath10k_pci

As you see, there is a producer name ( Qualcomm Atheros), serial number of the device ( QCA6174), description what it is ( Wireless Network Adapter) and the driver name ( ath10k_pci). In your case this is just generic driver: btusb, which I also have:

Qualcomm Atheros type: USB driver: btusb

but it isn't used for wifi as far I understand, at least not for me. So if you have internal card, it's not detected.

But no there is not any external wifi device. only I am using my phone as usb tethered for internet connection.

Tried installing

and blacklisted the rtl8xxxu still it is not working.

here's the hardware info:

[rishabh@Rishabh-PC ~]$ hwinfo --netcard --wlan --bluetooth | grep -Ei "model\:|driver\:|status\:|cmd\:|file\:|detected\:" | grep -v "Config Status"
  Model: "Realtek RTL8723DE 802.11b/g/n PCIe Adapter"
  Model: "Realtek RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller"
    Driver Status: r8169 is not active
    Driver Activation Cmd: "modprobe r8169"
    Driver Status: r8168 is not active
    Driver Activation Cmd: "modprobe r8168"
  Model: "Realtek 802.11n WLAN Adapter"
  Driver: "btusb"
    Driver Status: btusb is active
    Driver Activation Cmd: "modprobe btusb"
  Model: "Xiaomi Mi/Redmi series (RNDIS)"
  Driver: "rndis_host"
  Device File: enp0s20f0u3
  Link detected: yes
    Driver Status: rndis_host is active
    Driver Activation Cmd: "modprobe rndis_host"

hope it makes sense :worried:

I am using the internet with from phone connected via usb cable maybe that's why it shows
Driver: "btusb" Driver status :btusb is active
along with my phone's model name.

Test that by unplugging and running it again, check differences.
We have @tbg guide here:

I found one comment that secure boot will disable the wifi in Aug '19 (fedora).

Then an 'easy' solution for Arch/Manjaro:

So first advice - set up Timeshift and backup, then play.

The repository is not available that is given in the link there:

it says : remote: Repository not found. fatal: repository 'https://github.com/lwfinger/rtlwifi_new.git/' not found

And when i'm trying to install them from here :

It says : $ git clone https://github.com/smlinux/rtl8723de.git -b current fatal: destination path 'rtl8723de' already exists and is not an empty directory.

so if that already exists... should I uninstall it first and then reinstall it?
If yes.. please review the command I found on the same git for uninstalling the drivers

rmmod -f 8723de
dkms uninstall rtl8723de/5.1.1.8_21285.20171026_COEX20170111-1414
dkms remove rtl8723de/5.1.1.8_21285.20171026_COEX20170111-1414 --all
depmod -a
reboot

And also here is the results of hardware info when USB connection with phone is inplugged... Its pretty same as it still shows Driver: "btusb"

[rishabh@Rishabh-PC ~]$ hwinfo --netcard --wlan --bluetooth | grep -Ei "model\:|driver\:|status\:|cmd\:|file\:|detected\:" | grep -v "Config Status" 
  Model: "Realtek RTL8723DE 802.11b/g/n PCIe Adapter"
  Model: "Realtek RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller"
    Driver Status: r8169 is not active
    Driver Activation Cmd: "modprobe r8169"
    Driver Status: r8168 is not active
    Driver Activation Cmd: "modprobe r8168"
  Model: "Realtek 802.11n WLAN Adapter"
  Driver: "btusb"
    Driver Status: btusb is active
    Driver Activation Cmd: "modprobe btusb"

**edit : ** So I found the folder of rtl8723de it was on my downloads as I have already tried to install them before y following @tbg guide as i mentioned earlier. I deleted that folder and run these commands :

[Rishabh-PC ~]# git clone https://github.com/smlinux/rtl8723de.git -b current Cloning into 'rtl8723de'... remote: Enumerating objects: 38, done. remote: Counting objects: 100% (38/38), done. remote: Compressing objects: 100% (33/33), done. remote: Total 639 (delta 15), reused 15 (delta 5), pack-reused 601 Receiving objects: 100% (639/639), 2.72 MiB | 415.00 KiB/s, done.

:expressionless:

:sweat_smile:
Make sure you copy only the important part, otherwise the no-host is pointless ...

this should work with the r8169 driver. make sure is not blacklisted in one *.conf inside /etc/modprobe.d/

Yes it is blacklisted there... How to fix it? There is a file named r8169_blacklist.conf

and sorry for the mistakes i am noob here, learning how this works :confused:

Remove the file then reboot:
sudo rm /etc/modprobe.d/r8169_blacklist.conf && systemctl reboot

Did not worked. :disappointed:

What didn't worked?
If you have no cable connected to Lan (that is what i was referring), then is not working. Fixing your Lan would help you have connection, so you can do an update and move forward to the next part on fixing the WiFi.
You seem to have 3 Network Cards. The lan i mentioned, that should work now and you have a WiFi RTL8723DE that can also be solved. Then you have the USB WLAN (that from the screenshot was not working either because there was a Wired Connection) so most likely that needs to be removed, create a new connection that points to the correct working network card.
Then update and try again what was already suggested by other forum members.
