Hello guys, I have got a serious problem right here. I've got an realtek 802.11n adapter(probably my terminal reads it as "r8169" but I can't access internet, and I don't know how to install it into my Linux. I NEED HELP! I've never had any markable results of what I've tried so far. Thanks in advance.

Hello,

Can you insert the dongle and post back a screenshot of the command 'lsusb' from a Terminal? (I assume this is a Wi-Fi dongle.) If this is an internal card the post back a screenshot of 'lspci'. This should show if the system is even recognizing the device.
