Do you mean-

1. Try the code from the specific post you linked,

2. Try everything from the thread you linked,
or
3. Try asking for help over in the thread you linked?

I haven't started using the laptop for anything yet, so if re-installing LM19 would help, then I don't have any work or documents on it to lose. Would an older version of LM be better? Or Cinnamon instead of MATE?

Still nothing.

I'd like to make sure I am looking in the right place, I am clicking on the small rectangle on the bottom right of the screen and only seeing the following in the pop-up-

Ethernet Network (greyed out)
Wired connection 1
Disconnect
VPN Connections
Enable Networking (ticked)
Connection Information
Edit Connections...

Is trhat where I should be looking?

I've now installed the Cinnamon version of LM 19. But that hasn't fixed it.
