Just tried installing this on my laptop, completely new to Linux.
I managed to find out from other answers that the issue is that there is no native support for my network card, and that I need to download a new kernel. Problem is I don't have internet to download it with: Intel 8260 drivers not working, no ethernet and cant bluetooth tether for updated kernel
I have no ethernet port and I could not get the network from my phone to my computer. I could connect the phone and the computer successfully, but there is still no internet connection.
If anybody knows a workaround to either problem, I would be grateful!
Edit: This appears to be a problem with several units of Xiaomi Mibook Air laptop.
