WiFi Manager does not show networks on IGEL OS?

WiFi Manager does not show networks.

If I click the WiFi manager I can only see “More Details” and “Disable Wifi”. On a terminal wifi0 is visible with ifconfig and seems to be operational. I connected a second Wifi usb dongle. Nothing changed, except ifconfig is showing up now also wifi1.

Incompatible hardware?

Hi Klaus, did you checked the backport drivers?


Assuming we speak about 11.03.110…

Currently using

Then, please give 11.03.110 a try and my suggestion sent above. Please be sure to have the Wireless Interface activated either:


@member Aehm sorry – the default setting “Enable Wireless Manager” was not checked. After enabling it no problem to select and use wifi

What a s*** 😰

Thank you so much!
