Hi glent54,

Images that give text information (such as details about your hardware) are not acceptable on the forum because they are not searchable. Please post the text details as text.  ;)

We'll need the output from running the following commands in a terminal
Code: [Select]
lspci -vnn | grep -i netand
Code: [Select]
lsusb

Hi. In the future, will you please put code tags around terminal outputs and separate different command outputs? It makes the output easier to read and, thus, makes it easier for people to help you. Thanks in advance. I went ahead and did it for you this time.
