Ubuntu 18.04 wifi driver needed - YOGA 730



I am using ubuntu on the Yoga 730 for the first time as an OS and I have been struggling.  After finally getting the dual boot to work and ubuntu installed correctly, I am having trouble getting wifi to work properly.  It is stating that I am missing a driver.   I have read many posts and watched several youtube videos but my head is starting to spin as this is the beginning of my coding journey.  I attempted one to two attempts which included the following:


- attempting to install "rtl8723au-master" after downloading from github in the command terminal (no dice)

- black listing idea pad laptop in the command terminal to prevent a module from loading (hard fail - but I blacklisted it however wifi did not work)  


Any advice would be great and much appreciated. 

What's DOS?
