So I just recently installed Debian 8.6.0 Jessie and I've been having issues with wireless connection. My device can't detect wlan0 and I'm not really sure what to do about this.
When I do ifconfig -a it only shows eth0 and lo
then when i do iwconfig
lo no wireless extensions. eth0 no wireless extensions.
Sorry for the lack of information on here, I'm fairly new to using Debian and linux in general so I'm not sure what else i can put to show more info about this.
(EDIT) i did ip link show and all i got for the output was
1: lo: <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 65536 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN mode DEFAULT group default link/loopback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00 2: eth0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast state UP mode DEFAULT group default qlen 1000 link/ether 20:25:64:c9:50:a5 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
I also have the following info about the hardware I'm using on here (note: I am using a Toshiba Satellite S55 Series Laptop if that helps)
I also did dmesg and as I looked through it i saw that there were errors in it (I'll paste the notable ones I've seen)
