Re: network manager conf

I think that setting involves network devices specified in /etc/network/interfaces, if managed=false then network manager will not manage that interface

Re: USB Wifi Adapter not working with Mint LDME 4

See if removing the internal wifi card helps. You might need to reset BIOS settings if that doesn't work

That worked! Thank you for your help :)

Can I ask what it was that needed fixing?
Or did you disable Secure Boot in BIOS settings?

The chart at https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/en/users/drivers/b43 shows that only the proprietary module works for that device

Re: Problem with WiFi network on Dell Insperon

Mint 17 is no longer supported. If you can change the channel the wifi is on, I would change to channel 1-11 and see if Mint can find it then

Maybe you can turn wifi on in Bios or reset to defaults. Did check BIOS, early stages of this project, no real option of enable or disable. Other BIOS may & often do offer this option.

Re: WIFI adapter not working in linux mint 20 [Ralink RT 3290]

Try this before anything else

Code: Select all

echo "options asus-nb-wmi wapf=4" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/asus-nb-wmi.conf
Reboot, check rfkill list and see if anything is hard blocked, if it is try the FN combo again to see if it gets unblocked
