tomreynfawwaz: are you looking for support with getting that wifi dongle to work? if so, run this while online and post the resulting link: lspci -knn | grep -EA3 '(Network|Ethernet) controller' | nc termbin.com 9999 20:10
tomreynand this:  lsusb | nc termbin.com 9999 20:11

fawwazwow. it works. thank you very much. i've downloaded the driver actually (rtl8188fu ver. not the rtl8188ftv) and wondering how do i run that driver, again, thanks..20:13
tomreyni haven't done anything, the commands i provided were just for information gathering20:14
tomreynit's possible that the kernel update you installed (and rebooted to?) made it work20:14
