    Hi, so super new to Linux but I am having some trouble enabling my wifi. When I first installed elementary I didn't even have a wifi icon. I installed this:
    git clone -b extended --single-branch https://github.com/lwfinger/rtlwifi_new.git
    And after that I had an icon but now it just says wireless is disabled. I tried rfkill list and there are no blocks. I tried nmcli radio says wifi is enabled but I still cannot see any networks in my network manager. I tried nmcli radio wifi on but nothing happened and I checked the file var/lib/networkmanager/networkmanagertate and wirelessenabled = true. I'm kind of stumped.
