    Laptop doesnt recognize wireless card anymore

    Hello, I'm quite new to Fedora (a month or so), and i decided to give it a go on my older laptop as well. The problem is that at some point the pc decided that the wireless card wasn't there anymore; it was working fine on win8. Is there a way to know if it's just the card that died or if it's another issue? There are a lot of similar questions on the internet but I can't find anything that works.
    This is my inxi -Fxmz output.

    Re: Laptop doesnt recognize wireless card anymore

    Having a similar problem. Installed fc29 on a new HP laptop with Windows 10. Fedora says it cannot detect the wifi, but Windows 10 finds it. I can boot back and forth, and Windows works, but Fedora fails. Any suggestions appreciated...
