[Bug 1565106] Re: Wifi works on W10 but not on Ub 16.04 nor 14.04
gerard, as per http://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/hp-
pc/8499294/model/8876117#Z7_3054ICK0K8UDA0AQC11TA930O2 an update to your
computer's buggy, insecure, and outdated BIOS is available (F.1B). If
you update to this following
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BIOSUpdate does it change anything?
For more on BIOS updates and linux, please see
Please note your current BIOS is already in the Bug Description, so
posting this on the old BIOS would not be helpful.
Also, you don't have to create a new bug report.
Once the BIOS is updated, if the problem is still reproducible:
1) Please provide the output of the following terminal command (not perform an apport-collect):
sudo dmidecode -s bios-version && sudo dmidecode -s bios-release-date
2) Please make a comment specifically advising on if there was an improvement or not.
3) Please mark this report Status Confirmed.
If it's not reproducible, please mark this as Invalid.
Thank you for your understanding.

Wifi works on W10 but not on Ub 16.04 nor 14.04
Status in linux package in Ubuntu:
I just bought a laptop "HP Envy x360 15-w100nf". Everything's fine except wifi
- It works on w10
- but not on Ub 16.04 / 4.4.0-15 / 64 bits
- nor Ub 14.04
I've spent hours of discussions and tests on wifi forum
URL = https://forum.ubuntu-fr.org/viewtopic.php?id=1987186
(unfortunately it's in French but command line tests are quite understandable)
Now I think nobody can help me on the forum because we've tried everything, that's why I assume it's a bug.
I'm ready to make every test which could help solving this problem
In the meantime, have a nice day (actually a nice night ... in France !)
