I have installed Linux Mint 14 Cinnamon on my Samsung N210. The Wireless is a Realtek RTL8192SE (I think).
It connects so that I can log into email, other sites, but then it drops out after two or three minutes.
Ethernet connection works fine (as evidenced by this note
Can anyone talk me through how to fix this? I'm a complete noob, so would need step by step guidance.
I've tried downloading the driver from the Realtek website but for some reason cannot d/l the file (?).
If I was able to do that, I'd have to look into compiling the drivers, but not sure what I already have in place...
Here's my system info:
