    Hi all,
    Is there any way to install the wifi on ubuntu for RB15? I received my RB15 recently and after I installed ubuntu, I don't see any wifi installed.
    It does not have the ethernet port either, so I can not connnect it via cable and add ppa.
    Nothing is installed except the keyboard...any help for installing the drivers is appreciated!

    Hi PEARLheadCeleste,

    1. How old is the RB 15?
    2. What version of Ubuntu?
    3. What version of the Kernel, i.e. uname -a?
    4. Did the Ubuntu Live mode have any problems with wifi?

    Hi Graham,

    Thank you for the quick response!
    Here are the answers:
    1) I just received it a couple of days ago and is assembled on 8/2018.
    2) I had a 14.04 usb boot
    3) kernel: 3.16.0.30
    4) No, the live version also does not have a working wifi.

    Hi PEARLheadCeleste,
    I installed Ubuntu 18.04 on my RB15[2019]. Everything except NVIDIA GPU works smoothly for now.
