WiFi isn't working on Debian 8.7.1 on my HP laptop, with KDE. Posting this from mobile, hence, lack of formatting.
The plasma -nm applet is showing it just isn't displaying my WiFi network under any condition, despite the network not being hidden. Do I need to edit the /etc/network/interfaces file? (Given below)
I know some programming and very little networking, hence, I can't figure out where I am going wrong.
All the drivers required are present as verified by
apt-get install firmware-realtek
My home WiFi connection is ADSL router with WPA2 password.
My /etc/network/interfaces file is - auto l0 iface l0 inet loopback
auto eth0 iface eth0 inet dhcp
