Which wifi drivers do I need to install so that I don't get this ("No wifi adapter found") message on Fedora 27 ? I'm using HP 15 bs 179tx laptop.

I have HP 15 bs 179tx laptop. I have installed Fedora 27 and Windows 10 (dual booted) on it. But when I clicked Wifi icon it says "No wifi Adapter found". Please suggest me some drivers or solution so that I can use Wifi on Fedora 27.

What is the output of lspci? Or just give us the line corresponding to the wifi device.

@casep, why do you think that is the chipset he has? That one should be detected, it just doesn't always work well. In this case, the wifi device is not being found at all.

@Samuel a friend of mine owns the laptop. Additional he needed to deploy the additional driver for the card to be detected.
