I recently bought an Aspire-V5-591G. I installed ubuntu 16.04 alongside windows 10. I was not experiencing any problem with my internet connection on windows.
On ubuntu I have never managed to connect by ethernet or wifi, except from my phone's wifi hotspot. Somehow I could connect to that.
I tried many solutions, but I ended up blocking the hotspot wifi as well.
Can someone guide me in order to solve the problem?
This is what I have already tried:
2) Link 3
After updating my ubuntu version, I established an ethernet connection. I can connect to the internet. Yet the wifi connection doesn't work again.
