Red face Wireless Network setting in Mint


  • I am totally new to Linux. However, considering the many advantages of the operationg comparing to other OS, i have decided to go ahead with using MINT Rebacca which is the latest version. Initially for some time i did not have any issues in getting my internet connecton. However, for the last one week I am unable to connect through. The results of various terminal commands i applied is given below with a sincere trust somebody would be there to help me out.
