I've just installed an Ubuntu 22.04 on my Dell Latitude 5480 but the wifi card doesn't work. The ifconfig command doesn't show the wlp2s0 device. It looks like it's a hardware problem:

I have no idea how to activate the card. I tried with `rfkill`, but it didn't work and the Fn keys don't seem to work.

After like 2 days trying to figure out where this wifi problem comes from I finally found the solution thanks to this post.

It actually has nothing to do with the firmware the driver or whatever. The problem actually comes from a (stupid) power management option in the bios which disables wireless when connected via wired connection.

See the Dell documentation


Hope it helps.
