    WiFi connection

    I installed at least one older kernal and no luck. Just to get everyone caught up. I had the same problem with mint. The problem to me is the wifi card I have installed on the laptop.

    WiFi connection

    4.15.0-45-generic seems like the only kernal that is currently working for me with the wifi, but is slow. Should I stay on this? If so how do I delete the other kernals?
