I am new to Linux. I dual booted it with Windows 8.1. I have a wired internet connection. It works fine on Windows. Please tell me further information I should provide to get help.

Hi and welcome to TSG.

Tell us what version of Mint it is and in Windows look in Device Manager > Network adapters and tell what Network card you have.

In Device Manager > Usb to Ethernet Adapter click the Details tab then click the down arrow under Property and select Hardware Id's and post a screenshot of that please.

I assume you're using a Usb to Ethernet adapter ? Finding a Linux driver for it could be difficult, with the data in the new screenshot we can try though.

Did you try the commands in my link ? If so what happened ?

Is there anything written on the Usb adapter ?

What is the make and model of the computer ? Laptop or desktop ?

I checked and I have a similar adapter with the same hardware ID (although mine has 3 usb ports as well as an ethernet port) so I ran Mint 18.3 Cinnamon 64 bit live (ie not installed, running from a Usb stick) and my adapter worked.

Have you tried running Firefox in Mint ? What happens when you do ?
