Re: Mint 19 on Fujitsu Siemens AMILO La 1703

rfkill list all sudo rfkill unblock all PS. Did you noticed that Fn+F2 activates Wifi ? PS2. If you have too modern modem, it can be incompatible with older wifi chips, which shows that laptop sees wifi, but cannot connect. The solution for that is to use older modem or hotspot from phone or tablet.

I think I wiped out MX 17.1 when trying to use gparted. It still boots to Xfce.
