No network connection on new install

Post by PA-WOODCHUCK » Tue Jun 12, 2018 9:07 am

I'm totally 100% new to Linux and installed mint a few weeks ago but can't get wired or wireless network to work. I even installed on another HD but didn't help.


My system is a Dell-530 which once had WinXP. How should I go on getting things working?


Thanks

Hello, can you please post the result of the following terminal command, and enclose it in code tags? That's the button marked </>.
This is needed for pretty much any question about your system, so it's a good habit to post it straight away. So please copy this command, open a terminal window and paste it in, then press enter.

Code: Select all

If your issue is solved, kindly indicate that by editing the first post in the topic, and adding [SOLVED] to the title. Thanks!

Copy the info to an USB-stick.

Does Win10 has some application like Wordpad or Notepad?
