I have an HP OMEN dual boot with Windows and Ubuntu 16.04. Until a few days ago, I was able to detect Wi-Fi networks without problems. However, suddenly I can no longer see any wireless network. In addition, the wireless interface is missing the network administrator.
The exit of
sudo lshw -C network It is as follows
description: Network controller

vendor: Intel Corporation
physical id: 14.3
bus info: pci@0000:00:14.3

resources: irq:17 ioport:3000(size=256) memory:bc304000-bc304fff memory:bc300000-bc303fff
ifconfig It only shows results related to eno1 and what but nothing related to wlan0 as it used to.
The interfaces file in / etc / networks / interfaces says the following:
# interfaces(5) file used by ifup(8) and ifdown(8)
iface lo inet loopback
I restarted the network administrator following the suggestions here. That did not help. Nor the suggested steps here.
I can still use Ethernet but I am not sure how to fix it. Any help would be highly appreciated!
