We need EXACT error messages.

Not many developers here!
Without exact error messages, it is not possible to tell you what to check, but
you should check to make sure the firmware is installed for your card. In
addition, make sure that your wireless switch is on.
Last two images show how both eht0 and wlan0 were non active. This is strange, since using the live distro they worked perfectly.
I think they have to be activated by default, and in DHCP mode, so not to create problems to a non skilled user (like me ) after installation. Expecially because if there’s no network there’s no chance to have help, unless you have another system to count on…
