Hello

Hello everyone. I've dabbled with Linux off and on since the college days when Red Hat 9 and Fedora Core were popular. I always liked it but haven't used Linux much until about 3 months ago, when I turned my old laptop into a triple boot machine (Linux Mint 17.3, Neptune 4.5, Winblows 8). Now I have...

Re: Linux Mint 17.3 not detecting wifi

This website provides a (complicated) solution for the driver installation for your adapter chip (Realtek RTL8811AU). [Note: I'm not knowledgeable enough to do more than point to this solution.] Yea, that did look pretty confusing. I haven't messed with Fedora since Fedora Core back in the college ...
