As usual, I get stuck with the network configuration! I can never get it to auto detect

Currently I am at work and was trying to do it from here, it's wifi. I did an install without configuring the network. Just brings me to bash once it is installed so I assume that is because I didn't do the network configuration.

I also do not leave out the option that I am doing something incorrectly! I have been using Linux for a few years now but I have always installed distros w/ GUI installers

I am going to attempt it again from home and see if my home settings are automatically detected. If not I will post.

You take a distro, you learn, you use it all the time you improve and it's ok (debian approached me best)
but I checked ubuntu, mint, opensuse, fedora, slackware and FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, Solaris.

I started with Ubuntu, migrated to Mint then Manjaro. I hopped back to Deb based distros but I am most comfortable with Manjaro to be honest.

Then use Manjaro, deepen your knowledge, adapt it to your needs and it's ok. :)
