    acer switch one 10 (sw1-011) - no wireless hardware detected

    hello,

    i have what is essentially a tablet, with built in wifi capability.
    it came with windows, but it runs at a snails pace.
    acer support said they would not help.
    Installed linux successfully, but unfortunately, wifi is undetectable by Linux this far.
    windows wifi driver already installed.

    how do I detect and install wifi on this device?

    note: I currently have a USB wireless adapter attached.

    I suspect that this Acer wifi hardware is not yet supported, by any Ubuntu flavour. I've found:

    brand: tp-link
    model: 150mpbs high gain wireless USB adapter
    year: 2017

    works as a solution, until there is one.
    note: Also had success with other older USB wifi adapters.

    Can you confirm this is the case?

    Code:
    cat /sys/bus/sdio/devices/mmc1:0001:1/data
    USB wifi devices that are supported by the kernel will work
