Computer: HP Stream Notebook 11.6" Intel Celeron CPU N2840. WiFi was working in Windows, replaced Windows with Ubuntu 16.04. I have no Ethernet connection, so have not been able to connect to the internet at all. What I've tried: gone to Software & Updates/Available Drivers, 802 is selected. I suspect the problem may lie in the Add/Edit Wifi connections box, in the Device field. If that is for my computer's NIC MAC address, I have been unable to find it with
grep commands because the portion of the resulting display which would contain my MAC is in the eth0 section, and I have no Ethernet connection. Suggestions and redirection welcome.
