Install Realtek Driver Without Ethernet

Post by rose_miss »

I have a Lenovo IdeaPad S145 and have a clean single Tricia boot. I have no WiFi and no means to use an ethernet cable, so I need to be able to install the correct driver by USB. I have a RTL8821CE chipset. How can I install the correct drivers by USB? Where do I look to find the correct driver to download for my chipset, and how do I install it?

Thanks!

You can install with this package from PPA repo. Download package and install with right click => Gdebi. You must disable secureboot from BIOS/EFI settings.
