How can I get a driver to support my USB wifi dongle
#3
I've seen that but a lot has changed on how drivers are loaded since 12.04. That's Kernel 3x and we are on Kernel 4x now. Linux Firmware Non Free was introduced to deal with the lack of proprietary wireless drivers in Ubuntu. That's seems to have changed too in 16.04. 

Ayufans image doesn't appear to have support for older USB wifi devices but I may be wrong here. I don't want to start manually installing the wrong drivers and break the installation without being pointed in the right direction though thanks for the heads up.
