    Just installed Elementary OS 5 on a Dell Optiplex 745 and ran updates. Hardwire ethernet runs cleanly. The network manager holds a wifi connection for at most 10 minutes. On disconnecting it will only reconnect with a reboot. Wifi card is a Ralink RT2600 that works cleanly in Windows 7 and OpenSuse.
