    The official Lubuntu download site is here:
    https://lubuntu.me/

    Make a new DVD/USB install image from there.
    Your PC is 64-bit capable, and in my experience the install is painless, but takes up to an hour.

    PCI (sysfs) (which then disappears, followed by
    USB (which also then disappears)

    I'm not sure what you mean by this:
    post lshw.txt in CODE tags ?

    If I type lshw.txt then the command is not recognised.

    As you can see, I'm totally a newbie at Linux.

    What does happen now is that at least the WiFi Adaptor is recognised under Network Connections and I can switch it on. It still does not connect however, even when the correct credentials are entered.

    I downloaded so many Broadcom BEN 4312 (bcmw-kernel-source) yesterday I have no idea which one worked.

    Thanks, busy downloading the 32-bit 1804 and will see what happens.

    I also found this link, seems the CPU is 64-bit capable, but not the notebook.

    Re: lubuntu Version 19.04 Login problems

    Have you tried downloading the server version of Ubuntu and then adding packages manually bit by bit...

    e.g, first the lubuntu desktop, then the wireless drivers?

    Re: lubuntu Version 19.04 Login problems

    I booted the notebook from the USB drive using this lubuntu version: lubuntu-18.04.3-desktop-i386

    Again no wireless, then I checked for a new driver using Hardware Drivers. Again, it stated that the bcmwl driver installed is not working and should be disabled. However, in LinuxMint, the driver appears to work as it shows up under Network Connection, so I might hopefully be halfway there. Seems the problem might be the WPA setting, from what I read on an earlier post made in this group.

    Re: lubuntu Version 19.04 Login problems

    OK, I really have no idea what I did, the Compaq showed the driver was enabled but the wi-fi kept on showing disconnected in the wi-fi settings tab.

    Flaffing around with my befuddled mind did something correctly and I am proudly sending this message via my wi-fi enabled Compac Mini 110 Notebook Computer.

    I still do not comprehend half of what was discussed here but this is the reason why I am going with Linux - to learn.

    Many thanks to all who provided valuable assistance
