No network connection on new install

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

It's 100% Linux when I did the install as far as I know?

Copy the info to an USB-stick.

Does Win10 has some application like Wordpad or Notepad?

Yes notepad, but need to know how to read the USB stick(Linux) along with how to open the saved text/file
