Re: Wifi stops on every 10-15 min

It seems that there is nothing wrong (no errors messages about wifi).
Are you using network-manager? If so, delete all wireless profiles and then create a new one.
You can also try wicd, another popular wireless manager.

Re: Wifi doesn't work and Shutdown problems

As to the shutdown problem, you can save your documents, exit all programs and then run sudo halt in terminal to see if it shutdowns correctly. As to the wifi. Where did you get the drivers: use "Additional drivers" or download from somewhere else. Because I'm not familiar with Boardcom ch...

Re: clevo b5100 Realtek rtl8191se driver issue

Thanks for the info, I will try that because my n10 USB adaptor overheated and is now dead. I am just frustrated that the kernel is not built to handle the Realtek hardware right away. Thanks, if I get chance to try it, I will and post the results here. Did you get compat wireless from a repository...

Re: Dont know how to change screen resolution

Can you still boot into Mint?
If can, run
sudo update-grub
in terminal and see if it detects your windows.
If you are using the main edition of Mint 12, you can change screen resolution in "system settings->display"

Re: Wireless connection is slow and unstable

Have you installed the wireless driver from Realtek? If not, go to http://www.realtek.com/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=21&PFid=48&Level=5&Conn=4&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false and find the driver. And this page http://www.chayx.net/2011/06/how-to-install-realtek-rtl...

Re: Wireless connection is slow and unstable

It seems the signal is rather weak. I assume that is why your connection is slow.

Re: Partitions and performance.

The arrangement of your partitions makes nearly no effect on the performance.
A SSD is a perfect solution to slow booting. :D

Re: Wifi connected - no internet - works on other router

Can you log into your router?
I had the same issue sometimes. I could access my local network, but couldn't access the public network.
After emailing the router's manufacture, it told me to disable 11n and use 11g mode instead.
The situation hasn't happened so far.

Re: clevo b5100 Realtek rtl8191se driver issue

I used the same chip before. It worked smoothly in Mint 12 after installing compat-wireless.
You can also download the driver for linux from Realtek's website. It also works.

Re: /home locations after upgrade

Just boot into recovery mode, copy your home folder to the new location and then modify /etc/fstab
You should avoid using the same name in both systems. This is what I do.
And also, do not hibernate one system and then boot into another, which may destroy your data.
