    Hello
    I love this OS, but my new WiFi adapter is not working. It said it has Linux support on it. I've tried so hard to make it work. I really thought it would be plug and play like my old PCI adapter, but alas I cannot get it to work.
    It is this one

    Anyone have any ideas to please help?
    Thank you so much

    I got it to work. Unfortunately, I had to switch to Ubuntu and it detected it by itself without any issues.
    I hated to change os, but alas had no choice.

    It may be that eos is based on ubuntu 16.04 and you are trying the latest version of ubuntu which have support of newer hardware. When eos Juni comes out you could try again.
