My wifi card is not detected on Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. Device a85a Ubuntu 20.04.3. I have tried all kinds of different threads that have a similar problem and nothing has worked. I get the following message:
0000:02:00.0 Network controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. Device a85a
A teacher told me he thinks the "blob" is missing but I don't know what that means.
Here are some commands I have tried:
sudo modprobe rtw89pci
modprobe: FATAL: Module rtw89pci not found in directory /lib/modules/5.11.0-43-generic***
Is there something I can do to solve it? I've been trying to solve
this problem for 2 months now and I'm a bit desperate.
THANK YOU FOR THE HELP
