    no wifi or ethernet access samsung n140 xubuntu

    hi all!

    ive recently installed xubuntu 16.04 to my samsung N140...... installation went fine.....

    but after entering my internet password.... it will not connect.... also ethernet detected my network but will not connect either.... which is making this even more frustrating

    so I think i found some drivers for realtek "rtl8192e" (this is the correct hardware) but i've no idea how to install them... or if this is even the right solution

    any help would be appreciated

    thank you

    Gandhi

    this might help

    Re: no wifi or ethernet access samsung n140 xubuntu

    Hi

    I dont want to teach granny how to suck eggs, so please be tolerant.

    Normally I would try and install

    and see if anything is offered, you can say no and read the list and try to be more specific.

    sudo apt install wireless*
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    Note, selecting 'wireless-tools' for glob 'wireless*'
    Note, selecting 'wireless-crda' for glob 'wireless*'
    Note, selecting 'wireless-regdb' for glob 'wireless*'
    wireless-tools is already the newest version (30~pre9-8ubuntu1).
    The following additional packages will be installed:
    crda iw libnl-3-200 libnl-genl-3-200
    The following NEW packages will be installed
    crda iw libnl-3-200 libnl-genl-3-200 wireless-crda wireless-regdb
    0 to upgrade, 6 to newly install, 0 to remove and 108 not to upgrade.
    Need to get 199 kB of archives.
    After this operation, 808 kB of additional disk space will be used.
    Do you want to continue? [Y/n] n

    AND then choose wireless-tools
    CONDITION: Something loose in cockpit.

    SOLUTION: Something tightened in cockpit.
