    from 16.04 to 18.04 - Lost Wifi

    Hello Ubuntu fans.

    I have read in another thread to follow these steps

    Code:
    sudo apt remove bcmwl-kernel-source && sudo apt install git dkms
    git clone -b extended https://github.com/lwfinger/rtlwifi_new.git
    sudo dkms add ./rtlwifi_new
    sudo dkms install rtlwifi-new/0.6
    All worked as except for the last command i get

    Code:
    sudo dkms install rtlwifi-new/0.6
    
    Error! Your kernel headers for kernel 4.13.0-26-generic cannot be found.
    Please install the linux-headers-4.13.0-26-generic package,
    or use the --kernelsourcedir option to tell DKMS where it's located

    Did you install the linux-headers package as it suggests?
