Good Evening, from an old NOOB. Have used Linux (Ubuntu/Mint) for many years, always a desktop until two days ago when we bought a HP 17. I immediately installed Mint 18.3, from and ISO. Everything is fine with an Ether net, but no joy with a wireless connection. I have wireless connections to phones/Roku/desktop.
I am not familiar with wireless connection terminology. But it seems that the wireless card needs a driver, or HP has a manual switch that needs to be turned on???
I haven't install the Thunderbird mail yet on the Lap top so using the desktop to communicate with. I know this will require copy/paste of info from the LP's terminal.
If I could confirm that I haven't made a mistake setting up the original network connections, then confirm the wireless card and the driver is correct, it would be appreciated.
Guidance is most appreciate, for this 70 year old hard headed man.
Thank you for your time. 22:30 hours here.
