[SOLVED] No Wifi after installing Linux Mint 18.3

Post by Huo_Qu_Bing » Tue Jan 16, 2018 6:28 am

Hi

I'm new to LinuxMint (18.3) after switching from Windows few days ago.

I manage to have Ethernet, wired network connection but not the wireless network.
Previously I am running on Kernel: 4.10.0-38.
I just installed Kernel: 4.4.0-109, currently running on Kernel: 4.13.0-26.

I failed to make a wireless connection on both occasions.

Does anyone have any suggestions how to make the wifi work?
Thanks
