I’ve been using Pop OS 18.04 for well over a year as my main OS on my laptop without any issues. I went to upgrade to 20.04 a couple days ago and ran into a couple issues. Curious if anyone has seen any of these or has any ideas.
- WiFi won’t connect to secure networks (BCM 4350 card in 2016 Dell XPS13)
Since I upgraded, my networks and WPA2 were stored in the machine but it would not connect to them and kept prompting me to reenter my password. I setup another secure network via my phone’s hotspot and it also wouldn’t connect. I changed my home network to an open one and it was able to connect without an issue. I’ve tried installing / uninstalling a number of drivers per this page (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Driver/bcm43xx) but it didn’t work. Also as of now, the OS isn’t even finding the WiFi card. Any idea what wifi driver comes with the basic 20.04 install?
- Getting stuck on the “cryptsetup: cryptdata: setup successfully” splash screen after entering disk password.
This seems to have happened after a kernel update I believe since I’m able to get around it if I hit the space-bar during boot up and select the previous kernel.
If anyone has any ideas or suggestions, I’m all ears. I also took an image of my drive and tried doing a clean install of 20.04 this morning to see if that would help but accessing secure WiFi networks was still an issue. I’m in the process of restoring the image so hopefully I’ll be able to figure these issues out in the next few days. Otherwise I’ll end up going back to 18.04.
