The encryption makes it much more difficult to get access if it's been corrupted, unless you have the right kind of backups. It might be easier to reinstall...

Did you encrypt the drive?

Probably lack of RAM, at a guess.

This seems to be a similar error with a solution suggested:

https://github.com/kuba-moo/mt7601u/issues/64#issuecomment-553502997

I'm not sure exactly how to apply it and I don't have time to try now. Maybe someone can help to figure it out ;)

I don't know. It's generally accepted that that wifi adapter will work in the latest kernels without having to do anything. It might be easier to get a new adapter, they can often be had for about 5.

Ahhh... the dreaded RealTek drivers once again...

No!

looked it up on the Network and got the device name

You got the wrong one, that's your ethernet card. See here instead for the Ralink wireless:

Good stuff, thanks for marking it solved :)

The OP never returned with any info so somebody else came along with a similar problem.

What are you running Peppermint on? / Re: Advent 7204

I'm not aware that Windows machines can connect to the NFS shares on the NAS. If you also have Samba shares set up on the NAS, they could access those.

Yeah, NFS is better but I don't think you can make it work with Windurs.

The only thing I remember doing, other than email and browsing during that time frame, was loading and testing Virtualbox. I first removed the program but this did not help.

When I was researching your problem I came across a link to something about Virtualbox breaking DNS on Ubuntu. This is very possibly the cause. Anyway, glad you're back online and you're very welcome for any help :)

What do you get from this now?

Code: [Select]
nmcli dev show | grep DNS


13
Right-click the network manager icon in the system tray and Edit connections. Double-click on the connection you're using.

Go to the IPV4 settings tab. Make sure you've got DNS servers specified if you're on Automatic (DHCP) addresses only, or additional DNS servers if you're on Automatic (DHCP). I'd recommend the former.

These are DNS server IPs for OpenDNS:

208.67.222.222, 208.67.220.220

Click on Save.

You'll need to disconnect and reconnect the connection (you can remove the tick from Enable networking in the right-click menu and then re-enable it again). Hopefully you can now connect to websites.

Can we have the output of this command please:

Code: [Select]
nmcli dev show | grep DNS

Here's a procedure to reset Pulseaudio to defaults, hopefully it still works:
