I installed Elementary OS on my HP Notebook - 15-bw024na for the first time and I can't find a way to connect the wifi. It shows no icons or connections. I am new to Linux and was using Windows 10 before. I would really appreciate some help as I have tried everything I could find online to make it work.

I tried installing this: https://github.com/smlinux/rtl8723de but did not work.

Tried also the: sudo rmmod athk5 sudo rfkill unlock all sudo modprobe ath5k

And this one among others: sudo apt-get install --reinstall bcmwl-kernel-source

However, nothing is working so far. I am new to Linux and I am not sure if I am doing things right. Please help :)

  • Can you please confirm again if you see bcmwl-kernel-source in AppCenter > Installed (with wired connected). – Hasan Feb 4 at 16:04
  • Oh, if you did install bcmwl-kernel-source, have you tried rebooting afterwards? I can't remember if I needed to when I did it, but it never hurts. – SilverWolf Feb 5 at 3:29
