Re: No Internet connection. Wi-fi Asus USB-N13

Kernel modules are the same as drivers in Windows, shutting the one down only affects the wifi

Re: No Internet connection. Wi-fi Asus USB-N13

This only happens to a few wifi devices. It was actually using multiple kernel modules, one set was rtl8192cu with its dependencies and the other was rtl8xxxu. The rtl8192cu actually showed some errors in your script report, so we blacklisted it to keep it from loading

Re: No Internet connection. Wi-fi Asus USB-N13

Code: Select all

echo "blacklist rtl8192cu" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/rtl8192cu.conf
Reboot, see if it works better with the rtl8xxxu module by itself

Re: No Internet connection. Wi-fi Asus USB-N13

Try the following in terminal

Code: Select all

sudo sed -i 's/wifi.powersave = 3/wifi.powersave = 2/' /etc/NetworkManager/conf.d/default-wifi-powersave-on.conf && systemctl restart network-manager.service
That should disable wifi power management

Re: gksu removed from the repo's of Ubuntu 18.04

I just use pkexec gedit followed by the filename after using https://raw.githubusercontent.com/hotic ... dit.policy
I just copied the org.gnome.gedit.policy to /usr/share/polkit-1/actions/
I modified the file so it also worked with xed

Re: Nvidia Proprietary Drivers - Mint 18.3 KDE Glitching

I would try the 4.13 or 4.4 kernels and see if they work as I doubt Ubuntu has patched the nvidia drivers in the 16.04/xenial repos that Linux Mint 18 uses for the 4.15 kernel yet

Re: No wifi on new HP laptop

sudo dkms remove rtlwifi-new/0.6 sudo dkms remove rtlwifi-new/1.0 sudo dkms uninstall rtlwifi-new/0.6 --all sudo dkms uninstall rtlwifi-new/1.0 --all Then use the Mint Update Manager, click View/Linux kernels, click 4.4 on the left side and install the newest 4.4.0 kernel, reboot and use Grub Menu/...

Re: rtl8723bu driver for mint 2018

The last post had used that command and there were no results. Some of the newer machines do have internal USB wifi and don't have a PCI wifi device

Re: rtl8723bu driver for mint 2018

Are you sure the internal is not the rtl8723au as Pjotr's site shows that the bu and au use the same ID?
