which looks very much like the terminal command's output.
I can now dual-boot Pep10 and Win10. First impressions are that booting from the SSD is very quick (Pep10 used to take 2 minutes to start but was then acceptably responsive whilst Win10 was a little quicker booting from different rotating drives). I started by cloning my original Win10 drive to a new SSD then shrank the Win10 partition by 80 GB to make room for Peppermint. Pep10 intalled with one oddity: when I installed it to a standalone disc it correctly set the screen resolution to 1440*900 pixels. The dual-boot installation picked 1024*768 and it took a lot of fooling around with ARandR to get it to work correctly. Other than that, networking with Windows was determined primarily by Windows' petulance but I was able to import a photo of my cat to use as wallpaper.

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

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:

Hi 36m2jones,

Here is a short explanation  (click on the underlined text link to the left of this parenthetical remark) about how to do something like that.

Regards,

I don't know how I'm supposed to use those buttons.  I'm inexperienced.  I tried the # button just to see how it works, and it just says "
Code: [Select]
".   How do I know if I'm doing it right?

After pressing the # button you copy and paste your terminal output...  in between the code] markers[/code   

 ;)

@Slim.Fatz,

My computer has dual boot PeppermintOS and Win10 and in Windows I don't have this problem.  I wish I like to use Windows10 but I really prefer working with Linux but this kind of incompatibility with drivers just drive me crazy.
 

Welcome to our forum @tybuzz67!

To help us help you, please provide us the terminal output from:


Code: [Select]
inxi -Fz

Using the forum tools above the message composition box. Copying and pasting terminal outputs after selecting the # button above the laughing and angry emojis...  it helps keep the readout formatted properly.

@Slim.Fatz,

It it worked.  BUT for only a while then suddenly it won't detect the WIFI.  I quite mystified.  I looked at the network connections and my ISP is listed but Peppermint can't detect it.  My solution is I have to reboot the computer so the OS can detect it again. 

My computer has dual boot PeppermintOS and Win10 and in Windows I don't have this problem.  I wish I like to use Windows10 but I really prefer working with Linux but this kind of incompatibility with drivers just drive me crazy.
 
I am thinking of switching back to Ubuntu Mate 16.04 because that was what I used 2 years ago and I didn't have this kind of problem.
