Re: New Wi-Fi adapter not working on Linux Mint 19.1

You guys are great! HAWR's solution did work, & now, it seems to be working fine, & speedtests seem to suggest that it's much faster than the older little adapter. Thanks. :D Still, if you guys wouldn't mind answering, I do want to know if this new adapter is likely to have better range than the pre...

New Wi-Fi adapter not working on Linux Mint 19.1

Hi, so I recently moved to the US, & got a new PC & Wi-Fi adapter but it's not working on Linux Mint 19.1, though it IS working perfectly (plug-&-play) on pre-installed Windows 10 that the PC came with. I tried this solution to no avail - https://www.youtube.com/watch?reload=9&v=XJ0gcA778Ms Other so...

Re: Weird problem, can't access yahoo mail & other websites since two weeks

Did you upgrade the kernel? If so, revert back to the previous kernel where your connection worked. If that doesn't work, uninstall Firefox/Google, then reboot, then reinstall. Since your internet provider can connect and you can't, the problem is most likely your OS, even after changing the DNS se...

Re: Weird problem, can't access yahoo mail & other websites since two weeks

you're going to have to use some free vpn extensions like Browsec VPN - Free and Unlimited VPN or Zenmate. after changing DNS did you restart your connection with the new DNS? Right. What do you think about Tor browser? Is it also a good option too? Yes, I tried it with disconnecting & reconnecting...

Re: Weird problem, can't access yahoo mail & other websites since two weeks

Did you install ScriptSafe in Google Chrome or Firefox? It will block sites until you "Trust" them. Just a thought. I had NoScript but obviously, one of the first things I did after the problem occurred was to disable it & restarted Firefox to check if that was the issue but it didn't help. Bear in...

Re: Weird problem, can't access yahoo mail & other websites since two weeks

Hi, Can you try to disable IPv6? Edit the following file as root: /etc/default/grub and add ipv6.disable=1 to the line GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="ipv6.disable=1 ... ..." Then reboot and try again. I can't see IPv6 through the GUI in Network Connections (https://ibb.co/i6OoUz), & when manually tryi...

Re: Weird problem, can't access yahoo mail & other websites since two weeks

True, setting it to 0 just causes it to say "Automatic". I tried a few other numbers, like 1, 2, 3 but not sure how many & which numbers I should be trying. I take it then that setting it automatic (and rebooting/reconnecting) does not change anything for the better. I believe 1492 is the standard ...

Re: Weird problem, can't access yahoo mail & other websites since two weeks

Just to offer a little more info on the issue, netpnb.com, is another website that is giving me the exact same problem as yahoo.com; that is, like yahoo.com, netpnb.com's home/front-page loads for me but if I try to access the log in page or any other page of the website, then it fails to load. http...

Re: Weird problem, can't access yahoo mail & other websites since two weeks

The image shown in https://ibb.co/dLKCKp does not show the green padlock to indicate a secure connection with Yahoo, even though it is specified as "https". If you are trying to access the Yahoo site via a bookmark on your Bookmarks Toolbar without success, one can assume that this shortcut has bec...

Re: Weird problem, can't access yahoo mail & other websites since two weeks

moreover, as I've mentioned, the internet-provider came to my house with his laptop & directly connected the same wire into the LAN port of his laptop You didn't in fact; you said you called them. I assumed he looped back through your modem remotely. But it appears there's no modem/router (under yo...

Re: Weird problem, can't access yahoo mail & other websites since two weeks

https://thumb.ibb.co/i6OoUz/dns.png Tried changing the DNS as suggested but to no avail. I think my internet-provider also had me do something like this when he was at my apartment last week but obviously, it didn't even work. There was no option for DHCP anything, only "Automatic (PPPoE)","Automat...

Re: Weird problem, can't access yahoo mail & other websites since two weeks

In a terminal, can you post output of: ifconfig and dig google.com +trace ? If ifconfig shows a public IP you can obfuscate it. Output of ifconfig eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr fc:aa:14:1a:d5:08 inet6 addr: fe80::feaa:14ff:fe1a:d508/64 Scope:Link UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 R...

Re: Weird problem, can't access yahoo mail & other websites since two weeks

That's what some people on Hexchat said but I kept telling them that I'm in India, & there's no router in my apartment, & the internet-wire goes straight into the LAN port of the CPU (so, if there's a router somewhere outside my apartment, then it's not under my control); moreover, as I've mentioned...

Weird problem, can't access yahoo mail & other websites since two weeks

Hi guys, I've been having a weird problem since two weeks or so, whereby, some of the yahoo.com's pages are not loading. There are a couple of other websites that aren't loading infrequently but not being able to log into yahoo mail using my PC is really annoying, & hence, my core problem. I've been...
