I am aware that another user experienced a similar problem, whereby the solution was to download drivers - or at least, that's what I understood.
I can see the wifi tab but it won't allow me to activate it, the same applies for the bluetooth. I believe it's the wireless card.
The wifi does work on windows (dualboot). It's an intel card but I'm not sure of anything further.
How do I figure out what the drivers are called / referred to and how do I go about installing them? If there's another solution I'd greatly appreciate it!
Thank you kindly in advance!
UPDATE: I have added in a screen shot of the wireless tab. I can toggle the button on this screen but not from the home screen.
