Re: wireless network speed reading

I found out it must be the way the driver looks at the card, 1 channel and not 2 channel. the reason I say this is because I found a program to measure my network speed (not internet speed) its 300 mbs.

Thanks for everyones input.

Re: GNU Grub screen Booting Screen

How do you set it to 0 or get rid of the timer? As with Linux Mint 12 Gnome this screen does not show up until a power failare on reboot. Why doesn't KDE have the samething set up like that or how do you set it up like that.

thanks for your input.

Gnome 3.2/Linux Mint 12 driver issues Canon MP250

I found out that the new Mint 12 with Gnome 3.2 makes my printer and scanner drivers not work correctly with Cannon MP250. I had to go back to Mint 11 until I can find a fix or someone to come up with the fix. I really love the new Mint 12 so I hope this won't take long. On Mint 11 the printer and s...

Re: Having problems,intel HD3000 graphics HDMI dual display

Yes, I did enable the dual display in the bios. Either with it on or off I have to wait to plug my HDMI in until after the sign in screen comes up or my display on my VGA moniter will be affected by flashing screens and other things. Thanks for your input.
