Bought a fanless computer from quietpc. Some hard-ware info:
- Machine name: Sentinel Fanless Mini PC
- Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-H270N-WIFI Mini-ITX Motherboard
- Processor: Intel 6th Gen Pentium G4520 47W HD 530 3MB Dual Core CPU
- RAM: Corsair DDR4 Vengeance LPX 8GB (2x4GB) 2400MHz Memory Kit
- Storage: 256GB Samsung PM961 Polaris NVMe M.2 SSD (2800/1100)
Installed ubuntu 16.04 from a ubuntu-16.04.2-desktop-amd64 iso installed on a usb drive.
While installing, my internet connection, which always looked a bit shakey, broke, and I don't think the installer managed to fetch all the desired external packages. It went ahead and installed anyway.
The new set-up booted fine (in fact, at this point everything seemed to be going brilliantly).
But then I hit a HUGE problem. The Internet-connection in my new machine was and is very slow and frail - virtually useless.
I have not yet been able to update my package-lists, but I seem to have around 350MB of updates to download - impossible with my machine in its present state.
Preliminary research suggested that my problem might be similar to the problem described here:
[But could it also be a boot-problem - I have an M.2 drive?]

lspci -vvnn | grep Network:

Following the advice given in the link above (questions 858546), I downloaded (to another machine), physically transferred, and installed:
linux-headers-4.8.14-040814-generic_4.8.14-040814.201612101431_amd64.deb linux-image-4.8.14-040814-generic_4.8.14-040814.201612101431_amd64.deb linux-headers-4.8.14-040814_4.8.14-040814.201612101431_all.deb linux-firmware_1.161.1_all.deb
the 1.162-file was not available

This desperate step didn't work.
