  Toshiba (Laptop or Netbook)
  Mint (older version)
  Works fine with some minor problems
What works:

Hi folks,

Bought a brand new lappie, its awsm n Mint just adds that extra zing..

Everythin works except...

What doesn't work:

The Wifi.. Out of the box that is..

apparently this one has the latest RTL8723E which is not available as a listed device even on RTL website, and Toshiba gave only thw windows drivers, which I could not convert using the inf files.

What was done to make it work:

Fortunately someone over at Ubuntu got a hold of an RTL guy who drop boxed the driver (checksum n all correct so we know its what it claims it is) and I got it too.. installed in it mint and works like a charm.

Anyone needs assistance, I will assist.

Additional notes:
