17.3 speedtests are slow on new Acer ACZ-700g

I have a new Acer ACZ-700G running 17.3 KDE. On a 1Gig connection the best I can get is around 400 down and 50 up. The computer says it has a Gigabit ethernet NIC. A Surface Pro 3 running Windows 7 and my 4 year old Dell laptop running Rebecca KDE both get 900 plus on the downstream and always 50 to...

SOLVED!!!!!!! Network manager not running

Thank you mank_in. I re-installed Maya on my Dell and opted to keep the existing files instead of overwriting with new on a couple of packages in the many updates. All is well on mine and I did the same on my daughters Acer last night. Both work fine with both wireless and wired connections. Same is...

Network manager not running

Network manager not running after updates but I can connect both wired and wirelesly when using the live USB to boot. Just not upon booting from the HD. I'm on a Dell D630 running Mint 13 only and using a Netgear WG511T wireless card. I've searched for hours but found nothing that worked. It's as if...

Re: Young Linux Mint convert

Good replies on all counts. The only thing she came to me with today was how to get on the wireless network here at home. Once I showed her she said "Oh, OK." and I'll bet she doesn't have to ask again. It does feel good to have all three kids using some form of a Linux OS on their own machines. The...

Young Linux Mint convert

My daughter, 11, has been using Jolicloud on her Acer Aspire One for a while. She's tried a couple of other flavors, Puppy and GoS, too. Well her HD died last week and I asked her if she wanted to go back to Jolicloud when I installed the new HD today. Without hesitation she asked if Mint would work...

Re: wireless problem with Broadcom on Dell d630

Thanks for the tips but I tried all that before I posted. I've dumped the drivers and re installed them to see if that would work but still no good. Since it's a fresh install maybe re installing Mint 11 is worth a shot. If not I can roll back to another release and see what happens.

I recently installed Mint 11 on my old work laptop and can't get the Broadcom card to work. I do have hard wired internet access to download and install the drivers but still no wireless. Popped my old Netgear WG511T in the card slot and it works fine. Any help would be appreciated. Here are the res...

Re: Why did you switch to linux mint?

I tried Mint because I was frustrated with the various issues I had with each Ubuntu release and I like green. Knowing that Mint was Ubuntu based, I had reservations but am happy to say that everything works on this machine with Mint 8 Helena. Quite a refreshing experience for a change! I found this...
