To check if a wireless card is detected on Ubuntu, follow these steps:

  1. Open a terminal by pressing Ctrl+Alt+T or searching for Terminal in the launcher.
  2. Type in the following command and press enter: lspci | grep Network This will display information about any network adapters attached to your device. If there is a wireless card installed, it should appear in the results.
  3. Alternatively, you can also check the output of the ifconfig command by typing: ifconfig -a Look for any wireless interfaces such as wlan0 or wlp2s0 listed in the output. If there is a wireless card, it should appear here as well.


If you have a USB wireless adapter, you can also run lsusb command to check if it's detected.
