Zorin 16 Wifi hook-up

If you can still return for refund, you should do so.
You are the second person I saw misguided by Youtubers.
They used use a blog for stealth marketing but now they seems to change their adobe to Youtube :frowning:

Again thanks, I will return the unit. I am having to go out now, but on my return I will start-up and add your command to the terminal then let you know. Now I have become a member to this forum I shall stick to asking my queries here.

Yup :+1:
I also have to go out in another three hours for some appointment.
If you do not get a reply from me immediately, do not worry. There are lots of friendly volunteers on this forum who will happily assist you :slight_smile:

Let's see if we can help him :slight_smile:

Hi, michel, much appreciate your assistance. But as a newbie still getting to grips with the terminal. So having put in the top line 'sudo apt.... I instinctively pressed enter to start a new line and of course that has presented me with a request for password. Woops. can I continue or do need to return a line?

Yep, you will need to enter the password and when a confirmation prompt appears press and enter 'Y'...that will install git. After that only you can run the git clone... command.

Oops...
Perhaps USB dongle is the easy solution.
Compile driver from git may be a bit too much for beginners.

My recommendation is RT5572 in the picture above.
It is 300bps and works with Linux OOB :slight_smile:

Surely @PeterC can try this, if he feels comfortable doing that :slight_smile:

Your right, thats why i posted them in 2 so you would understand :wink:

First write in terminal sudo apt install git and hit enter

Then write in terminal git clone https://github.com/FreedomBen/rtl8188ce-linux-driver.git && cd rtl8188ce-linux-driver && ./install.sh and hit enter

To make no mistakes, copy everything with your mouse and past it in the terminal.

I hope Peterc knows that when pasting into the terminal he needs to use ctrl shift v, and not ctrl v . or use the right mouse button for pasting. Something I did not know when I started with using the terminal.

It would seem I am limited to 5 links and unable to continue at the moment.

I am sorry Michel but everytime I try and respond to this post I am told I cannot because I am still limited to 5 links. So for the moment I am not sure what to do.

Limited ??? did you turn of secure boot ?

He means limited to number of posts here on the forum I think.

I think this will solve the headache for everyone for 13 Pound.

Ok well another day, another try. Starting up again has left me with a new Terminal page, and so not sure what ramifications leaving the old one unfinished has.
With the 2 suggestions of an alternate dongle maybe under the circumstances that is the way forward for the present. Although in preference I would have preferred to resolve issue through the terminal if for experience if nothing else. Having just tried again it would appear I am still restricted.
