I just newly installed lubunt 20.4.1 on a HP 250 G3 next to windows 10.
The initial USB boot for the installation has problems with the WLAN,
but from what I have read this is due to the RT3290 chip which is in this
laptop and I would like to get to this after the wired LAN is working.
While the wired LAN worked from the USB boot, I can get no connection
to the wired LAN now when booting from the new HD installation. When I boot
windows 10, the LAN connection works fine, so it seems to be a lubuntu
issue. The driver in windows is Realtek PCIe FE Ethernet Family Controller.
Sudo lshw -C network gives:

I have some notions about linux, but the network stuff is really confusing
and I am not sure where to start.
Any help is appreciated.
