Here we will talk about connecting to a wireless network.

In most cases, Internet connection is set up using Network Manager. When you turn it off, you can manually connect the necessary local network. This helps in solving global problems with the Linkus Mint platform, and also allows you to solve driver incompatibility problems with a specific local network.

Setting up such a connection is no different from the classical way of installing the Internet. True, you first need to disable the option to automatically connect to the network in the "General" tab.

2 variation

There is another option for connecting to the Internet using a DSL modem.

There are also 2 options: either directly dig into the modem itself, or connect via a computer. The first method is convenient for using the network by different people. But the second method is convenient for parents whose children are sitting uncontrollably in the virtual world.

The first method looks more economical and simpler.

  1. Open a browser. Enter the modem address, username and password. The necessary parameters are indicated either on the modem itself or on a box from under this device.
  2. In the settings, change the mode from Bridge to PPPoE.
  3. Then enter new login and password parameters.
  4. Save settings.
  5. Reboot all devices.

An internet connection should appear. You can also set up Wi-Fi right there if the modem has the appropriate options.

The 2-way setup is even easier. Just set the Bridge mode. Then find the appropriate network connection icon and change the settings for a specific network. Save and restart your computer.
