I just got a Samsung NP900 and I erased everything and installed Linux Mint 18.1. While installing, I chose the option to install third-party software (and nothing else; meaning I didn't mess with the secure boot settings and stuff like that).
The installation went smoothly, but when I boot everything I can't get the wifi to get recognized. The output of
rfkill list only lists the Bluetooth, but nothing else. (By the way, I don't have access to any cable internet, so I can't really test the cable connection on it).
Here's the output of
Network: Card: Intel Device 24fd
The output of
lspci -nn gives me this version for the Networks controller:
Network controller : Intel Corporation Device [8086:24fd] (rev 78)
