I just installed mint and it doesn't show wireless connections, the driver is ticked on.

Also when I try to do rfkill list nothing show up.

Any idea on how to fix this?

Maybe I need to get the drivers for this laptop somehow?

I did make sure that the wifi is on in this laptop (HP G62), I also just had an ubuntu install and wifi worked there right from the start.


lspci -nn | grep 0280 output:

02:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Ralink corp. RT3090 Wireless 802.11n 1T/1R PCIe [1814:3090]


To make it even more strange, when I load the live usb version, I do get wifi networks to show up at the bottom...

    Please edit your question and post the output of running this command in a terminal: lspci -nn | grep 0280. – terdon Oct 11 '16 at 11:13

I did a complete erase and reinstall and ticked the "install third party stuff" this time and now it works.

Maybe it happened because I had ubuntu before installing mint over it.

I hope mint won't try to burn my laptop with 100% CPU all the time like ubuntu did.
