[SOLVED] Missing wifi connection after install

Hi there, I just decided to give a shot to archlinux. I used new installer and everything is successfully up and running. In fact almost everything because after start up there is not available wifi connection. Since I am using Gnome I would expect it in the top right corner where it is just missing. I have read several documentations but I got lost in it and did not manage to fix it. So a little help would be appreciated.

I have checked the driver status

Re: [SOLVED] Missing wifi connection after install

The installer does not setup post installation networking: https://github.com/archlinux/archinstal … guided.rst

For gnome integration you need to setup networkmanager: https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/NetworkManager

Moving to the guided installer subsection.

I have no idea which archinstall version is included in the current iso, but with version 2.1.4 you should be able to choose to install and enable networkmanager instead of copying the ISO network configuration.

Re: [SOLVED] Missing wifi connection after install

I don't really follow the development of the installer and at least from what has been posted here then this option was either not selected or not yet present. This info was just the first hit on searching the git repo for "network" so I presumed this to still be relevant.

@vavra please post the archinstall.log should the information above not suffice.

Re: [SOLVED] Missing wifi connection after install

Alright guys, Based on the provided link and note that network manager should be included in the installation I walked trough one more time. It showed up that the option is really there. Just it needs to select the correct one. Now my wifi is working. Thank you both for the answer.
