Re: Intel Corporation Centrino Ultimate-N 6300: Frequent failure to connect to web pages, "resolving host"

So I'm no expert and there may be better commands and better explanations for these, but the 2 commands I was thinking of are... 1) rfkill list - should list all hardware & software for wireless and if all are turned on 2) inxi -Fxz - should list all hardware and drivers where you'd especially want ...

Re: Peaq Slim S130 - Wireless Intel AC 3165 not detected

As to your wireless card, Intel put this out (https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/product-briefs/dual-band-wireless-ac-3165-brief.pdf) stating, "most features not available on Linux." Know that's not what you want to hear. =( Don't know if this helps at all, but here is a do...

Re: mint doesnt show wireless networks?

Hey preppystud, Which version of Mint are you using? In my limited experience with 19.3 I have found on every computer I load it on I have to connect the computer to the internet through the ethernet port and do a driver update for it to find the necessary drivers for the wireless card to work. You ...

Hey Rolling Hand, I could be way off on this (HAWR please correct me if so), but I think you should have a 2nd device listed under "Network: Device-1: Realtek RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet vendor: Gigabyte driver: r8169" if your machine was at all recognizing the presence of a wirel...

Re: Intel Corporation Centrino Ultimate-N 6300: Frequent failure to connect to web pages, "resolving host"

Hey jehuty, Sorry I'm pretty new to this, but did have a few thoughts... 1) have you checked to see if your card and drivers were all still recognized during the dropped times? 2) is it possible there are other things (microwave, cordless phones, other routers, etc) that might be interfering with yo...

Re: Wi-Fi password too short for Mint 19 Cinnamon

Hey phflupp, I'm pretty new to all this, but doing a little googling it seems a guy has a similar problem with his cell phone here (https://forums.republicwireless.com/t/wifi-password-too-short/16213). Their conclusion was the router is set to WEP encryption (an issue like JeremyB is talking about) ...

Connection failed Activation of network connection failed on HP Pavilion tx 1000 running 19.3 Cinnamon with Broadcom

Hey, I'm new to Linux Mint and Linux as a whole, but trying to transfer from Windows which I've used all my life. I also know little to nothing about what code is really doing when run. Researching online found Linux Mint to be highly recommended for someone in my place so I'm trying it out on an ol...
