Note: I am a beginner and I have been having problems with Qubes OS
since installation. I have not been able to use my laptop ever
Installing Qubes can be a bit of a challenge and folks on this list are
happy to help you work through it. You could as a first step take a look
at the hardware compatibility list
There are several IdeaPad’s listed there. Some of them with Realtek
WiFi. Therefore it seems not impossible to get this working. Most likely
Fedora doesn’t come by default with the drivers needed for your laptop.
In that case the next step is to identify the respective Fedora package
and install it (either via Ethernet or if all else fails download and
transfer from another computer)
This is the worst experience I have ever had with a distro. I wish
to just connect to the Wi-Fo so I can replace it immediately.
Sorry to hear that. Troubleshooting your issue either requires a working
Ethernet connection or another internet-connected computer to download
the respective package. If all you are planing to do is to replace Qubes
either of these paths should be sufficient to create an install medium
for the distro of your choice.
