I cannot activate the wired ethernet - when i try, it shows a "connecting..." and then turns off again (very fast). The wireless connection works, but is not stable and slow due to a low signal from the router.
I have searched the forum and stack exchange but could not find a answer for this issue, though it seems I am not the only one to have it.
Since I am a linux noob when it comes to fixing stuff, I would appreciate any help!
I have a dual boot with Win10. On windows it works just fine.
On other questions the output for lshw -C network was requested, so mayb it helps:
