How to install my network driver?

Post by whois1230 » Wed Nov 22, 2017 2:02 pm

Hi, I'm using a USB dual band dongle to connect my laptop to my Wireless network, and I installed Mint 18.2 Cinnamon 64bit with the USB adapter inside the laptop. The problem is, when I remove it, I can't connect to Wi-Fi using my built-in network card.

Does it show any wireless networks when you click networks in the right hand corner?
If I have helped you solve a problem, please add [SOLVED] to your first post title, it helps other users looking for help, and keeps the forum clean.

a. Please generate an overview of your system like this:
- Launch a terminal window (this is how to launch a terminal window);
- make the terminal window full screen, to avoid chopped lines;
- Copy/paste this command into the terminal:

Code: Select all

inxi -Fxz
(if you type: the letter F is a capital letter)

Press Enter.

Copy/paste the output in your next message.

b. Do the same with the following three commands:

Code: Select all

rfkill list all
and:

Code: Select all

iwconfig
and:

Code: Select all

inxi -Nn
