    See screenshot. I supposedly have a powered wifi, but it does not see anything, and I can’t rescan.

    I looked this link:
    https://antixlinux.com/forum-archive/solved-intel-wifi-firmware-missing-antix-13-1-t4477.html

    I tried some similar things on the command line, but got no luck activating the rescan button:

    The thread you looked for help is very (too) old. 2013-07-13

    Is wifi turned on in connman system tray under “status” in “Technologies” ?

    You could also have a look at this helpful video
    https://www.antixforum.com/forums/topic/wifi-with-connman-antix-19-2/

    Yes, the Wifi is turned on. Attached is a shot of the window. I am puzzled.

    If you tried the tips from the video ( Explanations for cmst start at about 3 minutes playing time ) :
    to look if somethimng is soft- or hardblocked with
    rfkill list
    eventually restarting the connman service
    sudo service connman restart

    then you could also switch to the software ceni as another resort.
    menu > applications > antiX > antix-wifi-switch

    Is this a live or installed system ?
