Reboot and use Grub Menu/Advanced Options to boot into an older kernel, then with working networking do

Code: Select all

sudo apt install linux-modules-extra-4.15.0-20-generic
Reboot

I don't have older version in Grub Menu/Advanced
There is only (upstart) and (recovery mode) but version are all the same

Download http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/ ... _amd64.deb and transfer the file to the linux mint desktop, then double click to install, then reboot

If you used the Mint Update Manager to install that kernel, do a refresh and see if there is an update for the update manager as this problem should have been fixed
