Hello List,

I hope it’s OK to ask it here and someone will be able to help. I would be really grateful for any suggestions / pointers at all as I am totally clueless.

I have just installed Xubuntu 18.04. I have no problems connecting to the internet via cable / plugged in / wired but it won't connect to wifi. When I check my available networks, the available wifi networks are showing but when I try to connect it seems to hang for about 30 seconds before I get the message; "Disconnected - you are now offline".

Can anyone walk me through / advise how do I get my wifi working?

Many thanks in advance!

apt-get update and apt-get upgrade were run. All the software is up to date as well.

Here is the "sudo lshw -C network":
