Re: Low download speed and system freezes when on wifi

I am not sure I understand the question. I have a TP-LINK TL-WR841N router and the BAND option in my network connections manager was set to "Automatic". I tried changing it to 5GHz and 2.4GHz specifically, but the problem did not go away in either case. When I reboot the machine the download speed i...

Re: Low download speed and system freezes when on wifi

Thank you for following up on the issue.
Unfortunately, switching off the powersave option of the network manager had little to no effect.

Re: Low download speed and system freezes when on wifi

It is a bit better now; Download: 17mbps, Upload: 24mbps, which are still not the speeds that I should have. Something keeps the speeds down and I don't get what is that and why it acts in a fairly advanced and clean system. May I ask what is this modprobe command really doing? Is it some sort of a ...

Re: Low download speed and system freezes when on wifi

This sequence of commands have decreased the internet speed to almost 0. Basically, I could no longer load pages (although wifi signal was ON).

Re: Low download speed and system freezes when on wifi

Thanks for the reply kelebek333. sudo rmmod iwldvm gives: "rmmod: ERROR: Module iwldvm is not currently loaded" Running then the following: sudo rmmod iwlmvm sudo rmmod iwlwifi sudo modprobe iwlwifi 11n_disable=1 swcrypto=1 results in the following: -- Download speed increases from 4-6mbps to 8-9mbp...

Re: Low download speed and system freezes when on wifi

I have also tried with and without the backporting as you note and nothing changed. The problem persists. One possibly interesting thing is that sometimes when I power on the laptop the download speed is fine. But then suddenly it drops and stays forever (until the whole system freezes) at below 6mb...

Hi HAWR,
Thank you for the reply. I already have tried this. This firmware file is already saved in /lib/firmware/.

Low download speed and system freezes when on wifi

Hi all, I installed Tricia (dual boot with W10) in my new Dell XPS 15 7590 and I have issues with the wireless driver (I think). When I use Ethernet everything works fine and I get download and upload speeds of 70-90mbps. When I switch to wireless connection, I get intermittent system freezes (I can...

Re: [Mint 18] HiDPI support in Mint 18, is it ok?

Same here.. I have a 14" WQHD screen and many programs (Gimp, Skype, Viber, etc) do not function well. Most of them do not seem to be built for such high resolution. This is as bad as it sounds... But what is worse is the Software Manager small deformed window when you use the HiDPI support. This is...

Notorious HiDPI issues. Any workarounds??

Hello everyone, Monitor issues here, that apparently others also have. I recently changed to a WQHD 14" (2560x1440) monitor and installed the latest Mint (Sarah) and Cinnamon (3.0.4). My graphics are GT 940M, but I believe this is not important. My first shock was that everything looked extremely sm...
