      Hello good, after trying antiX on my virtual machine I liked all the functions that came and how light it was, but I wanted to make a persistent USB with AntiX always have the portable operating system, but when I put it in full mode from the same live -antiX, update the repositories with my USB cable of my cell phone to share the internet but I cannot get the wifi to activate, I have managed to detect it but after a while it is deactivated and no longer detects it, it is worth mentioning that my lapto is HP.
      If any expert could advise me, thank you.


        In a terminal, please run this and post the results. It will tell people about your computer and wifi card:

        inxi -Fxz

        Maybe someone else will have a laptop with the same card…

            You are running MX Linux 64 bit. I’ll let someone that knows MX well answer your question.

            Daily driver distro



              Device-2: Realtek RTL8723DE 802.11b/g/n PCIe Adapter vendor: Hewlett-Packard
              driver: rtl8723de v: kernel port: 3000 bus ID: 03:00.0
              IF: wlan0 state: down mac: <filter>
              IF-ID-1: usb0 state: unknown speed: N/A duplex: N/A mac: <filter>

              If it works OK with MX linux, then it should too in antiX.
              When in antiX, do in terminal
              inxi -N
              and look to see that you are using the exact same driver as with MX, driver: rtl8723de
              Is the problem with Connman? Or are you using ceni?

              If your computer is quite new, please consider trying the antiX version with an updated kernel:

                I’ve had a similar problem on my old HP-G62, works fine on MX, & it always used to work fine on AntiX, but stopped being brought up when booting. I found that I needed to ‘unblock’ it, to be able to configure it.

                You can check if it is being blocked.

                rfkill list

                To unblock it.

                rfkill unblock all

                  That sounds familiar… On my 2007 hp laptop I had to set the bios to factory defaults every so often, or the wifi would be blocked. That rfkill error would start. Once reset, I can adjust settings back. Then after some months, something causes it again.
                  (Just saying that, if all else fails to fix it, perhaps give this a shot.)
