I have tried various solutions I saw but I just can't seem to solve this problem. I recently installed Elementary OS and the wifi option does not appear. The wifi chip is a Realtek
This is what I get when I run
sudo lshw -C network

I even tried using ndiswrapper to install windows driver but that doesnt work.
There is an
iwlwifi.conf file in
/etc/modprobe.d/ I'm not really sure why it's there but shouldn't it be realtek related?.
