No internet (ethernet nor wifi) works on peppermint os 10
« on: March 11, 2020, 07:34:25 am »

As a new person to linux, this problem is a giant hurdle for me. no internet works on peppermint os. It is a dual boot with windows 10. Windows is on uefi, while peppermint is on legacy. I can ping, but when pinging, for example, this is the result:

"Temporary failure in name resolution"

Windows can connect to both ethernet and wifi, while peppermintos cannot do either. I do not know what other inputs and outputs i should post, so i will leave it here.
