Re: Can't Upgrade to Tara

Apologies I didn't catch this yesterday. I stopped checking the topic back around the fourth or fifth off-topic message. :) I guess I misread something. I had found an article titled "How to Upgrade to Mint 19" and they did it all through the Update Manager and made it sound like it was easy as pie....

Can't Upgrade to Tara

So I'm running 18.3 and wanting to upgrade to 19. I have created the Timeshift snapshot and switched to lightdm so that's all gravy. The upgrade option is not showing up in Update Manager like it's supposed to, so I was going to do everything through the console but mintupgrade check returns the fol...

Re: Wifi Drops Constantly

I have not disconnected once since I turned off the 5GHz networks on my router. I can't believe it was that simple.

Re: Wifi Drops Constantly

Nope. It definitely got better since I have only disconnected twice in the half hour since my last post though.

I have read somewhere that band steering can cause issues, so I am going to turn off the 5ghz network on my router and see if that has any effect.

Re: Wifi Drops Constantly

I had installed the driver in the past, but I forgot about the warning not to update the kernel. Followed all instructions again. So far I have been online about two minutes. Hopefully I stay that way. Thank you!

Wifi Drops Constantly

I posted a thread a long while back but nobody ever responded. Trying again because the situation has gotten worse. My connection now drops roughly every 20 seconds (1). Unplugging my adapter and replugging it back in allows me to reconnect, but then less than a minute later - boom. Disconnected. I ...

Wifi Intermittently Shows Connected But Is Not

As the title says, my Wifi will randomly stop working but the little icon in the corner still shows me connected. The signal strength will sometimes drop to 30% and will sometimes stay up around 80%. Opening up Network Settings and reconnecting always fixes it. This occurs sometimes when I am playin...
