Re: Driver: Ralink RT3092

Hi, Vildua I searched for the Ralink wireless driver in the following link: https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/en/users/drivers which told me it is not supported at all.

Re: Wifi suddenly stopped. Tried many things need help.

Hi kc1di,
I would recommend you not to go back, specially when you could forward and install Mint 19. You could get a better support on the problem you posted. :D

Re: Network Manager Problem, 802.1x Supplicant Failure

Hi, did you consider to buy a dongle?. It will save time and money, until the problem could be fixed in the future. Meanwhile you can ask for support to the product manufacturer, which are the bad guys. :D

What I learned was that the level numbers in the update manager nindicate known stability. 1, 2, and 3 are stable and fairly safe being "mint certified", "recommended", and "safe", respectively. 4 means "unsafe" (or maybe untested) and 5 would be "...
