Went to try a live image of the latest Ubuntu. WiFi didn’t work “out of the box.” WiFi issues on almost every software update is one of the reasons I’m looking to switch distro, so it looks like Ubuntu might not make the shortlist. Fedora is next to try. If WiFi doesn’t work on that I might need to get a dongle instead of using the onboard adapter.

  1. What hardware are you running on? I’ve found it often doesn’t work “out of the box” because the hardware manufacturers don’t Open Source/upstream their drivers so it can’t be released as part of the core distro offering.
    It is definitely a pain for users, as it’s not like ie Dell would say “don’t buy this, it sucks for Linux usage!”
