It seems we're fighting a lost cause ... you have put a lot of hard work in this case, thank you very much!

The owner receives a laptop he had given up ... functioning fine and ready for action. I will advice him to buy a usb wifi adapter. Something like this one. It costs a little, and solves all troubles. The laptop has several usb ports, so ...  ;)

I do remember you once pointed me to a usb adapter that worked flawlessly with linux ... I found the link on the old forum, but the link is dead. Do you remember what brand and type it is?

Thank you so much, again and again and again, you a a real Peppermint hero!

Was it an Edimax Nano EW-7811Un

I have one of these and it's plug-n-play in Peppermint 5
