Re: mint 17.1 huawei G3 dongle disconnects after15 seconds

Hi Sadhu, Unfortunately it seems that Mint 17(.1) has indeed been "updated" in the same way as Ubuntu - at least your Mint and my 2 Mints :) The two comments I've gathered about the solution you quote below (one on Ask Ubuntu, the other from richyrich on this Mint forum) advise against mix...

Re: mint 17.1 huawei G3 dongle disconnects after15 seconds

Sadhu, I suspect that you & I might be experiencing the same issue (similar symptoms, began happening around the same time), but I don't think it's limited to Huawei devices, as I'm using a Sierra Wireless Aircard 312U dongle. My post is here: http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=49&t...

Re: LM 17: Wireless broadband stopped working, wifi still fi

Thanks Richy. On the basis of what you say, I'm happy to go for the Mint 17 / Trusty repo, and to avoid the Precise one - I'm just not sure where to start. Or even whether it's worth undoing any of the steps I'd taken above to enable repos from Precise. :? My Aircard modem worked just fine out of th...

Re: LM 17: Wireless broadband stopped working, wifi still fi

Thanks for the reply! I'm not sure how I'd even find an appropriate repo for Trusty, but the person whose post I've quoted from Ask Ubuntu seems to think that because Precise was an LTS release and still supported, that it's repo's would be accessible. I imagine that's the case, unless you'd suggest...

My LMDE broken -boot hangs at flashing cursor

Howdy all, Elsewhere I've posted about issues I'm having with the LXDE 11 RC installed on a bootable USB thumbdrive. Thankfully though, that thumbdrive works well enough for me to type in this message, because the LMDE installed on my Dell Mini Inspiron 10 netbook seems well and truly busted (sob!) ...

Thanks again, folks. I followed CiaW's latest suggestion, and can now see wireless networks - looks like that's solved. Subsequent to doing this, my mobile broadband dongle has begun working again - a coincidence or not, I wonder? In any event, I'll mark this thread solved, and if the mobile broadba...
