I will explain best i can. I have Windows 10 main OS and WiFi works fine on it. I have Linux Mint on a USB to try out but WIFI will not work in Linux Mint i cant do updates or anything without WIFI. I looked Windows is RTL8821ce-dkms WIFI driver it appears to me this driver isnt installed in Linux Mint. Where can i download this driver to a USB and maybe put it on Linux. If there is an easier way to do this it will help me. I can use the terminal if needed. Iam lost on what to do. I have tried many things i got online, none have worked. Thank,s Chuck

It's most likely a Broadcom driver, which requires fwcutter.

Please run the above commands that Rustys posted so I can better look at it.

I run the commands i got for Linux i new since i didnt have WIFI on Linux i figured i would just load them to a USB then give you what the Linux commands to you off my Windows laptop well they didnt work at all. You will have to go from my Windows screenshots. I hope these screenshots will help. Thanks Chuck

The commands above are for Linux only. They won't work in Windows.

Are you able to take screenshots inside of Linux and copy them over to USB? Or just copy the output into a txt file and copy it over to USB?

OK so that does use a Broadcom chip. There's a Youtube video here that'll work (You'll need a hardwired connection to install the driver)
