And head bumping into sweet old "this kernel does not support your card" issue that still plagues the land of Ubuntu/Debian derivatives.
Anyway, I have just downloaded KDE .iso image, created a live USB and installed over one of the previous Linux installations on a dual boot system with Windows 7.
After booting into KDE desktop I click on the network icon and see no active Wi-Fi networks even though there should be one available.
Checking the kernel, looks like it is still 4.10.
Checking the network cards:
Code: Select all
Card-1: Broadcom BCM43142 Card-2: Realtek RTL8101/2/6E PCI Express Fast/Gigabit Ethernet controller driver: r8169
