Some days ago I install on my PC elementary OS 0.4.1 Loki with parallel Win 8.1.

But I have a trouble. When start elementary OS, I have only wired connection and can't switch it on wireless. The slider doesn't respond.

Write this from Win 8.1 with connection to WiFi.

  • Can you open System Settings, go to Network and turn wireless on from there? Does it work? – Maccer Aug 2 '18 at 7:37

Steps to produce

  1. Find your wifi driver over Google (or whatever search engine you prefer)

  2. inside the source direct, make and install the drivers.

Reason : This is a restricted feature on NT kernel, which basically hijack propreatery drivers regardless of System shutdowns.

  • I'm sorry, but I'm noob. I have broadcom 802.11n. Ok. I find driver. Download it with instruction. Do all step-by-step but something going wrong with wl.ko. Terminal writing smth like wl.ko does not exist or is not the right way. – Антон Коваленко Nov 4 '17 at 21:02
