Another wifi problem

Post by james9999 » Thu Jul 11, 2019 4:26 pm

Hey, new user here. I installed linux mint 19.1 on a windows 10 laptop. I set up a wifi network based on the one I was working on but was unable to automatically connect to it. Should I just get a dongle and use that? Is there anything else I should know before I do that?

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.

Do the same with the following four commands:

Code: Select all

rfkill list all

Code: Select all

iwconfig

Code: Select all

lsusb

Code: Select all

lspci
