    installed mint cinnamon 20.04 on dell lattitude 6410 about a month ago and have been using ethernet. tried using wi-fi today and it says wi-fi unavailable. i've clicked the on/off button but nothing happens. the wi-fi on another dell lattitude 6410 with mx-19 works fine. this should not be an issue. looked on youtube for a fix but i'll probably just try another distro. anyone tried parrot 4.10 yet? thanks

    found the problem. there is a small switch on the right hand side of the dell laptop. move the switch towards front of laptop to turn wi-fi on.

    USA still the best. But barely.
    Glad you're sorted!
