Hello there !!! I just bought a new laptop and of course is coming with windows.
When machine is booting on windows wi fi is working, when I’m booting it from Mint live USB, ( using Sonia btw) can’t see any wi fi connection.

Hey Captain! It's been a long time (my fault). Any chance you can try Mint 19.2 instead? A newer kernel may be the easy fix for you. New computers can often be a problem when hardware is upgraded and Linux hasn't caught up to it yet.

Cheers

Dear @atanere, you are right once again.

Finally I managed to download Mint 19.1 ISO file using ship's internet. It took more than 3 hrs but it worth it. Yes, new kernel is working with new DELL hardware, wifi is working perfectly.
