Re: <Went back to 17.3> Mint 18 missing firmware for wireless

Thank you for this. I will have to re-install Mint 18, which I intend to do, but have been having difficulties due to
my laptop overheating during the download. I will get to it asap.

Re: killer wireless-ac 1535 not working correctly

This solution provided by JeremyB might solve my problem as well, however in order for the command to work it requires

My home network is wifi only.

Re: <Went back to 17.3> Mint 18 missing firmware for wireless

Now that the stable version of Mint 18 is available, I will try the upgrade once the instructions become available. Normally I never upgrade any linux system, just install the new version but in this case the upgrade may be the way to go as 17.3 already has the firmware I need, hopefully it will car...
