So your wifi is back as I expected? Good, otherwise this would have become messy. ;)

Well, this was a fun ride we took together, wasn't it?! All is well that ends well, although I still don't have an answer why update manager wouldn't show you that kernel. I'll just have to chalk it up to a bug with the version you've got on Mint 17.

And you're welcome. :)

In Mint 17.3 I had to do this:
sudo apt-get install linux-generic-lts-xenial && sudo apt-get update
.. to get the latest kernels to show. :)

Yep, but I had him do that back on page 2 of the thread, and also he already had kernel versions installed that wouldn't show in update manager later. So it's not that easy to explain unfortunately - don't remind me, I'm still having nightmares from this thread, haha ... just kidding. :lol:

I'd likely read those parts but had forgotten :oops: see why it became such a headache. :mrgreen:

Hope the OP comes back and adds [SOLVED] to the thread title. :wink:
