This is my first post on this forum. I was actually trying to install Arcolinux for some time, but I was not able to get help with these issues, so I thought I would try a different distribution (it's all the same under the hood, anyway). I have had my eye on Manjaro, and it's Arch-based - that's a plus! I have fully installed the Manjaro-awesome edition, but I cannot connect to the internet. I had similar issues with installing different versions of Arcolinux. I saw a similar post from earlier today (Wifi Setup for New Installation), but my situation is a bit different because I cannot plug into Ethernet. I will need to install the packages needed on my Flash drive (using a Windows PC) and then install them on my Linux machine. Can somebody give me a step-by-step walkthrough for this?
Here is a summary of my system details. I do not want to type the whole things out, so I will do my best to get the relevant information. Please let me know if any additional information is needed.

I have a very busy weekend ahead, but I will try to check in on this post so that I can get this resolved. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
