Netbook won't connect to internet
« on: March 20, 2019, 06:57:25 pm »
I got a little netbook on Peppermint 9 and just can't figure out how to get to the network manager to connect it. Usually netbooks and laptops automatically have a box that pops up and starts searching for the wi fi. This does not happen.
My computers: Asus notebook x102B, running on Ubuntu. Asus c300 Chromebook and an old Dell inspiron mini netbook running on Mint.

In a world without fences and walls, who needs Gates and Windows?

Down by the clock (bottom/right of screen) you'll see a wireless network icon .. normal left-click it, and you should see a list of available wireless networks .. click YOUR network, and you'll be prompted for the wireless key .. enter it and click "Connect" .. you should now be connected.
