I just installed Elementary OS to my laptop, it is an Alienware. When I was in the installation process, it asked which wifi it should connect and after confirming password it installed everything perfectly. After installation finished, I logged into the system and I only see Wired connection set by default. When I open "Network" I see Wifi is connected but "never" used. Can someone please help me?
OK, so as per @a-tokarev mentioned in his last comment, by installing this
bcmwl-kernel-source driver i solved the issue. So, all the people out their who is struggling with Wi-Fi connection in their
Elementary OS distro you can follow either steps from below.
Go to your
Installed tab and check for
Drivers section. There you will find
bcmwl-kernel-source driver. Click the button
Free on it's right & it will install necessary drivers to activate your Wi-Fi connection.
Go to your
Terminal and copy/paste below command and press
$ sudo apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-source
You have to provide your
sudo password to install this. I hope this will be helpful enough.
