Re: Mint 19.1 No Wireless Lenovo Legion Y535

I did just check, and don't think that is it. I do have wifi when I boot Windows. I think it is most likely related to the configuration wifi.powersave = 3 setting.

Not surprising since this is a fairly new machine. (The GeForce GTX driver does seem to be working fine, thank goodness.)

Re: Welcome Ladies - post here :)

Hello everyone. Glad to see many women. When I started software development in the mid 1970s there were few of us. I was fortunate to start working in a mini computer environment, which led to working in Unix environments shortly thereafter. So it does not make sense that I've been working on Winwoe...
