Dropped wireless network connections

I just installed Linux Mint 17 Mate onto a Toshiba laptop and wireless connections are dropped at random times. I changed the channel of the router to one that no one near me is using and I'm only a few feet from it, so interferance cannot be the problem. This laptop is using the the Realtek RTL8188...

Re: List of support TV tuner card on Linux mint and How to

No luck with the WinTV-HVR-1250, I tried both goiing directly to the cable connector in the wall and adding an attenna, couldn't find any channels. However, switched over to a WinTV-HVR-950Q, which uses USB, and after following the instructions given at: http://linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Hauppauge_W...

Why doesn't /dev/videox exist?

I have installed a Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-1250 TV Tuner into my Linux Mint 13 (Maya) system.

Recommendation for a Wireless PCIe card for LM13?

Are there any particular PCIe cards for 802.11N wireless that are recommended for Linux Mint 13? Any that should be avoided?

smbtree does not list printer share

I have gotten printing from Windows 7 to Linux working by going directly to cups: \\ip address\<printer name>. The problem with this is that the ip address could change. I would prefer then to go through Samba, but when I type smbtree all of the file shares that I have defined are listed, but the pr...

Upon attempting to add the printer to Windows 7 I get a message saying that the device is not on the network. smbtree does not list the printer share, s...

enumprinters says "no printers"

I've connected an Epson ink-jet to my Linux Mint 13 box, I can print fine from Linux, but Windows 7 machines cannot see the printer. I have Samba setup according to the recommendations made here in the forum, but when I run enumprinters I get: "No printers found".

Re: Mint 13 only boots in compatibility mode. AMD A8 system

I ran into a similar problem on a new machine. Fixed it by:

1. replacing quiet splash with nomodeset (press tab and edit the boot line)
2. running boot repair, see the last post here:

Re: Can only run in compatibility mode from DVD

If you only have Mint installed and no other OS or Distro, I don't think you see a menu unless you press SHIFT (I think) at boot. Try adding nomodeset to the boot argument Do you need to install a graphics driver? What graphics card/chip is it? I'm using the on-board graphics: "AMD Radeon HD 6000" ...
