Mint 16 - cinnamon 32 bit Whenever I boot (or reboot) Mint starts with the Wifi off. I have to use the applet and enable Wifi - and then it connects without a problem. How do I make Mint enable Wifi by default on every reboot please?
Click your network manager icon, then network settings, click the arrow next to your network ID, then settings, and the general tab, put a tick in the box for 'automatically connect etc etc', save and you should be done
Ah - nope. (but thanks for the fast response anyway!)
The automatic connect to the specified networks are already set and work just fine. What is disabled (and keeps getting disabled every reboot) is the activation of the wifi adaptor. The little "broken connection" icon in the panel. I have to press that - and Mint then goes off and discovers the Wifi - and connects to the specified services. How do I get the Wifi adaptor to start on reboot?
Same issue here, Linux Mint Cinamon 16 (64bit), HP laptop 6730B. I Have tried google, duckduckgo and others, no succes. My GF's laptop however does connect automaticlly, she has a HP too, but other model but same Mint version.
I don't understand the code, but I put it into the terminal and this happened:
c@c-Aspire-9300 ~ $ dmesg | grep wlan [ 20.581233] IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): wlan0: link is not ready [ 20.581692] IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): wlan0: link is not ready [ 148.586277] wlan0: authenticate with 30:46:9a:36:ed:1c [ 148.612502] wlan0: send auth to 30:46:9a:36:ed:1c (try 1/3) [ 148.616840] wlan0: authenticated [ 148.620108] wlan0: associate with 30:46:9a:36:ed:1c (try 1/3) [ 148.626953] wlan0: RX AssocResp from 30:46:9a:36:ed:1c (capab=0x431 status=0 aid=1) [ 148.627758] wlan0: associated [ 148.627826] IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_CHANGE): wlan0: link becomes ready c@c-Aspire-9300 ~ $
but I tried and a re-start did not work. basically a fixed cable is OK, but the WiFi needs manually setting up each time. MTU is set to automatic, not sure what this is (as mentioned earlier!) Any other ideas? or info that may help find a solution, sounds like it is a common issue. Thanks Chris
