Wifi constantly dropping on MInt 15

Postby emr7 on Fri Sep 27, 2013 1:19 am

I have gone back to Mint 14 where Wifi works perfectly, tried Mint 15 but Wifi would drop out or slow to nothing after 10-15 minutes, only way to get it working again is to shutdown and restart computer, any help?

The output below is on Mint 14 where the Wifi works great I uninstalled 15 so can't show that output.

lo no wireless extensions.
