Wifi not recognized was created by Maayan
Dear all

I recently installed CAELinux on my new desktop, and the wifi is not working at all.
I checked using a live CD of Ubuntu 18.04, and the wifi was working properly.
Please see attached print-screen of "Software & Updates":

The app allows to choose only the "Continue to use the manually installed driver" option, and it doesn't help.
I don't how to install the correct driver
The motherboard I have is a Gigabyte Z490 UD ac, it has a Intel wifi AC 9462 chip.

Thanks for any help

This wifi driver is not available in all versions of the Linux kernel for Ubuntu and unfortunatelly you will need to install the driver separatelly. Hopefully, it is available as a package.

For more information, there are several solutions discussed here:

I would first try to install the package directly using this command:

sudo apt install backport-iwlwifi-dkms

If it does not work, then you will need to add the personal package repository PPA as follows:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:canonical-hwe-team/backport-iwlwifi
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt install backport-iwlwifi-dkms
