hi,

i installed debian 9 on my laptop and it isn't supporting the wifi 
sub-system.
i tried minimal-install of fedora 29 and the wifi is supported but 
remains unconfigured.
so basically, the wifi drivers do exist under linux, just not under 
stock debian.

is there any particular variant of debian (other than ubuntu and 
derivates) i should try out to check if it would support wifi networking 
under my laptop?

thanks,

~mayuresh
