Wifi wont turn on

I dont know why wifi wont turn on i push the button and nothing happens.

This is not really a KDE problem, but we can still help. Do you have any more information about your system and what WiFi card it has?

my system is a dell latitude e6420 with i think a intel centrino advanced-n 6205 thank you :smiley:

Do you know what distribution you’re using?

im using kde neon :slight_smile: :slight_smile:
