Probably a problem with my Chromebook or with Chromebooks in general. I tried a lot of different fixes but nothing worked. 😠
So it may very well be that it is, in fact, a problem of the Chromebook itself.
Before I basically put the Chromebook in a cupboard and forgot about it, I tried every fix I could find and nothing worked. I hope Chrome fixes the issue, though who knows when that's going to happen. My problem with the Chromebook not working on the 2.4Ghz radio started almost a year ago.
It’s probably time for me to dust off my 15 year old Vaio, reformat it with Linux mint and really complicate my daughters life. LoL
Mint is definitely one of the more user friendly Linux distros. I have it on a spare HDD in this desktop, though I haven't connected it in a while. I should though, and update it to the latest version.
It's a nice Windows alternative, though still with that Linux learning curve, which can be a bit daunting at first.
