Why do you not include the drivers for RTL8111 I have not use Mint for years because the network never worked I found the drivers and installed them but way to much trouble I was getting ready to give up for good and found the instructions to install. and why are the fonts on your web site so small we all don't have young eyes :(

if the fonts on our web site are so small, then you just use Ctrl + to make them bigger
:)

the rest of those issues, are beyond the control of team.linuxmint,
as they are all sourced from upstream:
ie: from the Ubuntu or Debian base.
so - they are the Team that has to include those drivers.

On all versions of Ubuntu the Ethernet works fine and have for years they have the drivers? openSUSE has the same problem of not working? :D

Debian 8.7.1 has the same problem so I guess I need to try and contact them and less you can do it? but Ubuntu fixes it so mint should work?
