Need help with issues connecting linux mint 19 to wireless wi-fi phone router

Post by new001 »

Have a recent install of linux mint 19.3 MATE, and need to connect to the internet via mobile phone as a wireless router. However, issues preventing me from doing this are: no proprietary drives detected, AND not able to find MAC address (even with the "ifconfig" command). It looks like the computer name & MAC address need to be added to the list of "allowed" devices on the router phone as well- so going in circles. Other than not being able to get internet, the operating system appears to be fine. Thank you.
