Re: intermittent wifi [SOLVED]

JeremyB - Wonderful! No losses of internet since changing to the older firmware last Friday, using the code you gave me from two posts back . Really grateful for you guys and this forum. I could have spent a lot of time getting nowhere on my own and disappointed not to be able to use MInt. So many t...

Re: intermittent wifi

Thanks, I couldn't see anyway of updating the router, it's a Virgin SuperHub and I think they may do the updating.
I've been using the laptop on and off today so here's hoping, will be busy next few days but will post again perhaps next week.

Re: intermittent wifi

I haven't got a Network Manager, only 'Network' under Admin which shows the Hosts I listed in the last post, then under Internet and Network there is 'Network Connections' and 'Network Proxy', I've just noticed in 'Network Connections' if I click on a network I can then click on a gear icon taking m...

Full list is... local host pedro-Inspiron ip6-localhost ip6-loopback ip6-localnet ip6mcastprefix ip6-allnodes ip6-allrouters Are you suggesting I delete one or more of these?

Re: intermittent wifi

JeremyB - I was using it most of yesterday, it was late evening when it started to lose wifi intermittently.
This morning it was still intermittent so I turned the firewall off, but made no difference. What do you suggest?

Re: intermittent wifi

I also ran it while the wifi wasn't working and got the following, if that's any help. Of course it wouldn't give me a URL. Let me know if there's some way you want to get to see the output. Results saved in "/home/pedro/wireless-info.txt". Results also archived in "/home/pedro/wireless-info.tar.gz"...

Re: intermittent wifi

Thanks Jeremy, I've been trying it and another laptop with MInt 19.1 over the last two days. Wifi is ok on the other laptop, but on this one the problem comes and goes but at worst is still disconnecting every 10mins or so, and I get wifi back by clicking the icon in the panel and clicking on the th...

No I don't use Docker. And I use Firefox so it's not Chrome related. But thanks for the post.

Re: intermittent wifi

Yesterday I thought this was solved, though there were a few disconnects, but today it's back to disconnecting every 10mins or so. I've looked at iwconfig and confirmed the power management is still off. My workaround is to click the wireless icon in the panel, then the network id that I'm using and...

Re: intermittent wifi

Just realised this is two separate lines of code! Obvious when you know.
I've discovered iwconfig from the internet and confirmed power management is now turned off.
So I'll see how it goes and report back. Many thanks for the help.

Re: intermittent wifi

Thanks for your response Jeremy. I tried pasting the code into terminal, it pastes up to -powersave-on.conf
then starts a new line with [sudo] password for pedro: ************************************************
Am I misunderstanding how to paste in the code?
